First, I would like to inform everybody of my new bragging rights: TasteSpotting has now commented on my blog two times. Yes, I know.
Second, Taylor and I have recently discovered our culinary genius and we would like to share it with the world. Our first endeavor: cupcakes (not out of the box, thank you very much)
Somehow we couldn't get our egg whites to form stiff peaks, so we tried with 3 new eggs, but it still didn't work, but we're assuming it doesn't matter because they still tasted good. AND the frosting called for lemon zest, but we used orange instead and we didn't even have that zester or whatever. We/I also burned the chocolate on the first try. After 3 hours of hard work (so what if it should have only taken half the time), magic was born: vanilla cupcakes with orange zest cream cheese frosting and raspberries and chocolate! In conclusion, these were cupcakes that should have gone horribly wrong but turned out so so right.
A new and exciting discovery: cookie pancake sandwiches
So Taylor only had mini-cupcake pans, so we had left over batter, and we decided to make them like cookie pancakes. Then we spread them with frosting, drizzled some chocolate, and filled them with raspberries. One day, we'll learn how to take better pictures so we can be on TasteSpotting.
