Last weekend, I baked some cupcakes for a friend of mine. It was her stagette, and there was a ‘food party’ beforehand. The theme was Hawaiian/Tropical, and so I stole a few recipes and altered them a bit to concoct some delicious minicakes. Today, I brought them into work, cause it was Friday. These pictures had to do with it being Friday too.

We wanted to created a sort of crazy “cupcake eye” effect, but fell short when we ran low on ambition and interest. There was talk of making a sort of “Geordi LaForge” type eyeband with the cupcakes attached to it, but we then decided to do a careful balancing act with my eyes and the cupcakes. There was almost a cupcake accident, but all was well.

The vanilla/white cupcake is a Pineapple-Coconut cupcake with a Pineapple-Ginger Cream Cheese frosting and Candied Ginger. The chocolate one is a Peanut Butter filled Chocolate cupcake with a Rum-Chocolate Ganache and Carmellized Bananas. I will post the recipes if anyone wants to try them.

    Recipes, please! I’ll trade you a recipe for gorgeous flourless chocolate cupcakes, which, when served hot, are like mini molten chocolate cakes.

    I notice that your lip piercing switched sides from one pic to the next… Any reason one pic is mirrored?

    It was taken on my computer’s webcam, and it mirrors all the images. I didn’t flip it, cause I’m lazy and didn’t have the 15 seconds to spare. 🙂
