Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. This year I opted for baking some cupcakes instead of cookies. Mocha peppermint with buttercream frosting and gingerbread with a dollop of cream cheese/whip cream frosting.
It was a busy week for me, starting off with a birthday celebration, culminating with Star Wars Day, and it happened to be my last week of teaching at Chicago State.
I have a fake facebook account floating around on the interweb. My original intention was to use it to snoop into other people’s lives and maybe take advantage of a special offer or two. Since the birthday I entered on that account is false, the few real friends of mine who found the account typically wish me a happy birthday some time in the fall. Fortunately, my wife doesn’t do facebook either, so she isn’t fooled by the alternative facts found on-line and knows when to really celebrate my birthday, and she did so this year with a pyramid of lava cakes.
We had a birthday party to attend recently, and it gave me an opportunity to dust off some of my cupcke recipes. It”s been a while since I”ve done some decorating, and I almost forgot how much fun it is…
