Quick Update

This moth came to visit yesterday. He/she stayed on our kitchen window all day. I think he/she looks very anime monster. I think he/she is really cute but I don't want to be condescending.

The day before yesterday I was bent on making marshmallows and cupcakes. Chocolate chocolate cupcakes and cherry Chambord marshmallows. I was going to pipe the marshmallows in shapes kind of like the ones I make in my paintings. The marshmallow batter didn't come out as stiff as I would have liked but they did make interesting looking, good tasting marshmallows. I ran out of time and energy to make the chocolate ganache for the cupcakes. My friend Michaela suggested I put marshmallow on the cupcakes instead. Great idea. Here's a photo of them that Pete took:

If we don't eat them all first I'm still going to make ganache and put it over the marshmallow.

Those cupcakes rock. And the marshmallows are even better the day after.... if that is possible.

The frosting with the marshmallow on top of the cupcakes sounds so good... total GREED/LUST/MAYHEM... all at once! YES.

DELICIOUS. And so cool looking to boot.

Good thing I don't live next door. F*A*T*T*Y pants would be your new best friend!
