Well, so much for that.

January 21, 2010

I had the greatest idea to make red tea cupcakes for this month’s Iron Cupcake theme as it is “Winter Warm-up,” which is pretty much what …was going on right now. I want it to be 65 again, yesterday was amazing.
Basically, they were vanilla cupcakes, except the milk was infused with tea. I left it sitting for a good half hour and the milk tasted like a tea latte, but the flavor just didn’t come through. I waited a day. Still nothing…and they were disgustingly dense. So, I don’t want to bother submitting them. I also don’t have the time or really the money to retry again since FINANCIAL AID TAKES FORFREAKINGEVER. Because my guess would be red tea is a bit too subtle for a cake. Matcha goes right in, chai and earl grey have strong flavors, so that kind of explains why I see those in cakes but not any other teas. 😦 Oh well, it was worth a shot. Read more


Review: Yoforia

October 16, 2009

Yoforia is a fitting name for where I was after finishing off my cup of frozen yogurt. It was indeed a state of euphoria…and yogurt.
After the worst food I have eaten in awhile at Mimi’s Cafe (I don’t even want to talk about it. I felt like a five year old compared with the age of everyone else in the place and they used the worst buffalo sauce ever to make up a terrible buffalo chicken wrap) I decided the solution was frozen yogurt. I didn’t even realize Yoforia was in Perimeter Mall, but I was like okay, we’re going there. Yeah, it was like 55 and windy and five minutes beforehand I was saying I was cold…but is that really important? Read more

October 6, 2009

Like I said, I have a ton of pomegranate juice now, and a sudden love for margaritas, but I hate tequila. Does this make sense? Nope.
Since I know pomegranate is such an in thing, it was relatively easy to find drinks, also, it’s easy to come up with stuff too. One of the secret benefits of pomegranate juice is that it makes everything better. Here are five tasty ways to use pomegranate juice to get drunk. Although I must say, there is no reason to try all five in one night. Read more


Pomegranate Cupcakes with Pom-Vanilla Bean Buttercream

September 28, 2009

While pondering if I was going to need to build an ark last week, I got an email from Kristen at POM Wonderful, asking if I was interested in a sample of their juice.
…forget flooding, I am in, now just what can I make with that?!
Of course my immediate idea was cupcakes, and obviously I went with that, but little did I know just how much POM Wonderful juice was on the way to me. Read more
