Last night I decided to continue my tradition of making cupcakes for Valentine's Day.
I was stoked on the L train just thinking about the little suckers.
I'm not really much of a cake person, but, there is something just wonderful about little, self-contained cakes.
A single serving, a dainty treat, so darling.
Such a cute little snack was meant to be baked on the most lovey-dovey day of the year.
But, after much anticipation, I realized I forgot the frosting when I finally got to the apartment. I had too many things to get together, so, out of frustration, I almost scratched the idea all together.
Then, I saw the food coloring in the cupboard.
If they can't be frosted, then damn it, they will be pink. So, off I went.
First: Pink batter.
Next: Into the oven, just like Hansel and Gretel. Only, if these cakes had been those children, they totally would have died.
Finishing Touches: Making these cupcakes as cheesy as possible for addROC, because, what would Valentine's Day be without a sickeningly sweet message to send him into the throes of passion?
Yes. I made a heart out of baby-cakes that reads: "I <3 U BABY CAKES."
Does that make me a loser?
But, in the end, loser or not, I made some cute-ass cupcakes. Delectable for zee munchin'!
Enjoy your weekend Nesters!
Happy President's Day!
And, Happy 100th Post to us here at The Brooklyn Nester!!!
