Peach Cobbler Cupcakes

The days since the inauguration have felt anything, but peachy.  However, It's been awesome though feeling the camaraderie online, especially with the people I follow on Instagram.  Normally my feed is all pretty parties and delicious treats. I'm happy to see people take a moment to share their thoughts. It makes things feel less isolated.  

Another silver lining to all things happening in the United States, is that it is making people think.  I know I've never given too much thought to who is in the White House or the decisions that are being made by our elected officials and maybe that's awful, but it's honest.  Bachelor nights with my girlfriends have even shifted!  We've gone from a night of gossiping to the occasional political discussion...  The world really has turned topsy turvy!

Key Lime Pie Cupcakes

My understanding is that some of you out there, those who don't live in California, are experiencing this weather phenomenon called fall.  Us Californians on the other hand are still experiencing ninety degree weather.  My fellow "Basics" are sitting outside, drinking PSLs in flip flops while perusing Instagram and willing a single orange leaf to drop from the trees.  Just so we too, can snap that perfect photo.

So while you're running around in your cute new booties and sliding on those favorite leggings, I'm standing in my hot ass kitchen baking these light, summer-y cupcakes.  Please remind me of this moment six months from now when I can't wait to give "winter" the boot.



The Grasshopper Experiment

This all started with the desire to tackle the elusive hi-hat cupcake.  For those of you who are cocking your head to the side thinking, WTF, click here and then you'll be like, oooohhh.  This really didn't go as I'd planned and I'm kind of bummed about it.  I might not be the best baker in the world, but I really hate when something gets the best of me.  Like with macarons, I've only been successful ONE time and it was so much damn work that I now understand why those tiny cookies are so damn expensive!

Getting off topic... Basically what I'm telling you is that this technique is not for the novice baker and if you attempt this, do not feel defeated.  All my coworkers thought they were really cool and thought they were delicious.  I just prefer my treats to be both attractive and tasty.



This probably goes without saying, but if you attempt the hi-hat then make sure to give yourself time.  It definitely takes patience and if you're successful, please do share!  I'm always interested to hear other baker's techniques.
