self portrait - Resolution Theme

I'm gonna do my best to not turn this into a vegan cupcake/baked-goods blog. But bare with me; it's all that's on my mind as of late. I'm like a zombie following baking orders from on-high. Yipee for escapism, or yipee for following ethereal directions. I'm not questioning it

Oh, I may have my first cupcake order for Valentine's. It would be from my good and kind friend, Kim, but an order nonetheless! I'm on my way, kinda sorta. A handful of dollars closer . . .

Here are a couple recent self portraits:

Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Cake with Mousse Topping. Notice I'm practicing my decoratin'

Here are the pride of the Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World book. These are the Rose Water Pistachio cakes. They're so good it kinda hurts.

wow, these are amazing.....what makes the icing pink?? i'm making cupcakes next week and was fantasizing about pink icing but don't want to use food coloring, which i assume is full of crap.....

gay said...

oh my goodness these look so good i can taste them and they're healthy too? i'm in heaven now!

madness rivera said...

ESB, I'm just gonna fess up now and say that I used some food coloring that had mesmerized me at a gourmet cooking store. BUT, I do agree with you about food coloring in general. I was going to order some natural coloring online. See link below:

I betcha you could just use beet juice in the frosting without too much flavor interference. I mean it doesn't get much pinker than beets.

d-
isnt it amazing how when we stop and go with the flow of things, everything can change? this cupcake thing just might be it. it sounds like things are just falling into your lap, and thats when, i believe, the good shit happens.

you sound so good. i miss you. even though weve only met in person twice. i wish you were still in my corner of CA. :)
