Happy Election Day!


Did you vote? I did. So far today I've worked a 7 hour shift, voted, eaten 1 1/2 cupcakes, pumpkin hummus and tortilla chips and captured that photo you see above. Apparently you can get a lot done when you wake up at 4:30 a.m. I also had a really awesome dream. It involved $3 lap dances. That's all I'm going to say.

For a long time I've been interested in starting my own bakery. I'm clearly at the cupcakes part of the recipe testing, so get ready for cupcakes and cupcakes and cupcakes. The cupcake you see above is an Apple Spice Cupcake with Caramel Penuche Frosting. Apparently "penuche" is pronounced "pu-noo-chee," which I find kind of funny. You can find the recipe over here.

And for your Election Day enjoyment, I hand-picked some American-themed songs. Go ahead and have an impromptu dance party.

  1. I have no problem with cupcakes and cupcakes and more cupcakes, so I'm stoked to see what you'll come up with.
    (I didn't vote, but that's only because I'm not a US citizen.)

  2. The next cupcakes I plan on making involve cardamom. And maybe some coffee. I'm trying to replicate a cardamom latte I fell in love with at a coffee shop in St. Louis (my hometown). Or maybe I'll just make the latte!

  3. Yes, please. Too bad I can't have you teleport some my way.

    1. You don't want the ones I just made. Cardamom with lemon-maple frosting. Sounds good but very bad.
