It was surprisingly easy for me to come up with a first concept for this month’s Iron Cupcake challenge, even though I clearly walk on the sweet side of things.
This month, I was a little “meh” about the theme for Iron Cupcake. I don’t really drink soda (I’m a tea and water kind of girl), and considered sitting this one out. But, it wouldn’t be a challenge if I didn’t do it, and besides, I was able to make something for the coffee challenge, […]
This is a recipe I’d like to tweak some more, but the ingredients are not terribly easy to come by. However, the flavor pairing I picked is one I really like.
Don’t let this recipe color your opinion of me. Yes, it is the fifth Iron Cupcake entry of mine in a row that contains alcohol. I promise I am not an alcoholic! In fact, I rarely even drink anymore and would generally much rather bake with any alcohol I do have. The only reason this […]
I thought I was done with this theme, but my mom gave me a mostly-full bottle of locally made raspberry wine a few days ago. Hmm…raspberry plus rose equals what?
It takes a very smart or very stupid person to plan a recipe around a slightly odd ingredient they’ve never tasted before. Which am I? You be the judge (literally, for a week after January 24th, you can vote here…please vote for me…specifically THESE).
This is the first thing I came up with when I decided to go with Chardonnay as my wine for the challenge. I might try something with the Merlot from last month, but due to a previous lack of proper equipment I now have a very full bottle of Chardonnay, and these cupcakes are SO […]
One of the first things I thought of when I found out the theme for this month’s challenge was wine. When I went to the wine tasting with my mom a couple months ago, we tried this one red wine that tasted just like black cherries and would be excellent with dark chocolate. I couldn’t […]
Okay, cupcake number one! The second one will follow in the next couple of days, since I have a lot of just plain FANTASTIC naked chocolate cupcakes left over and I’ll be picking up my other ingredient tomorrow. I just have to figure out how I’m going to use them together!
