God certain has an imaginative love of life, wouldn’t you say!?
Here’s how I understand: I’m dating a faaaaantastic guy who… does not understand the difference between a cake and a cake… a muffin and a cupcake.
Funny, right? This has becoming a joke… right?
Okay. Become fair. It’s not that he doesn’t understand the distinction… it is that he blends them all up everyday. Possibly it creates me personally slightly crazy. Perhaps it goes something similar to this:
Myself: Simon, what are you wanting for your birthday celebration?
Simon: A Huge cake!
Me personally: a cake? You suggest you don’t wish a huge ol’ chocolate dessert?
Simon: Oh! Wait! No…. I want a cake. Wait… desserts would be the big, multi-layered things with all the current frosting. Yes. I would like that.
Me Personally: Cake. Maybe not pie. Cake. Ok.
Me: Hey Simon! What would you like for break fast?
Me: You suggest muffins, right?
Simon: Ooh yea. Muffins. Yeaaaaah. They've similar shape! It’s confusing.
Me personally: I'm sure.
Ok… maybe those two conversations tend to be a little bit of an exaggeration. But seriously pals… they’re not too most of an exaggeration. This happens for me, and I also don’t see a conclusion in sight. Very funny Jesus. The good news is We have a very keen love of life also. Ha.
Possibly getting back together for their mix-ups, Simon is one hell of a cupcake decorator. Really.
Now, I’d want to introduce you to my absolute favorite Red Velvet Cupcake recipe with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting. Wait… muffins. No, cupcakes. No… positively cupcakes. I know this.
Truth be told, I haven’t for ages been the greatest fan of Red Velvet Cupcakes. I thought they always tasted, well… purple.
This Red Velvet Cupcake recipe comes from The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. Most of the cupcakes I’ve tried from this book thus far have now been a significant success. What makes this meal therefore lovely, may be the hearty although not overwhelming number of cocoa powder. It’s adequate to tint the cupcake a sultry brownish-red and also to sculpt along the purple taste that always turns me down. Buttermilk actively works to result in the cupcakes the perfect softness and coupled with Cinnamon cream-cheese frosting… shut-up… so great!
This dish makes one dozen cupcakes. Twice as much dish and you’ll have either two dozen cupcakes, or adequate batter in order to make 2 9-inch layer cakes. Brilliant!
