Sometimes we don't like to follow the rules. Like tonight for instance. We didn't feel like following just one recipe...so we followed 3. (Sidenote: If you haven't picked up, we've steered away from restricting ourselves to the bounds of the cupcake book. We've expanded to blogs, websites...whatever inspires us.) When pondering what type of cupcakes we would make this week we knew we wanted the flavors of peanut butter, chocolate, and banana. However, we couldn't find one particular recipe that hit the nail on the head. We found a banana cake recipethat sounded dreamy, but that wasn't enough. We needed to fulfill our cravings for peanut butter and chocolate as well. So we found this peanut butter cream cheese frosting recipe (because you gotta have cream cheese...please don't look at the calorie count). As for chocolate, we decided a store bought brownie recipe would suffice (dark chocolate...go big or go home).
Tragedy struck when we had a mixer-related near-fire emergency crisis. Whilst using the mixer to make the frosting, there was an undeniable electrical fire smell. We value our lives more than cream cheese frosting, so we unplugged the mixer and went back to the basics: bicepts and brawn. While some of you may know Aimee has a current ailment in her knee, her upper body is stronger than ever.
We have special dedication this week. Special little cupcakes for a special little monkey named Emma Trevino...who turned 19 today, not 18 (a common misconception). We love her spunk, spirit, and spirally hair.
Until next time....
Cupcakes and Love,
Aim & J
