I'm not a fan of giving up, but when it's to pursue something better, then it can be viewed as something positive. That's exactly how I feel about the basil cupcake experience. I tried, really did, then decided to move on to the September Cupcake Hero Challenge.
We could choose 2 of the cupcake hero themes they've had so far. I chose coffee and coca. This recipe isn't complicated at all. But after submitting fancier cupcake recipes in the past, I decided to go with something simple. This flavor combo is always a winner, but I wanted to spice up the cupcakes with cinnamon. The brown sugar 'tofutti' cream cheese frosting actually adds a toffee flavor to the mini cupcakes, at least that's what Jose thinks.
As for Thingies Thursday, I just found out about it. You can click here to read more about the fun weekly event. I'm participating so that I can share my fascination with antiques and old objects with you all! One thing I love about where I live is that I'm a very short bus ride away from a huge, 4 story antique market! I dropped by a few weeks ago and purchased an old Pillsbury Cookbook that I happily added to my vintage cookbook collection. Here are a few photos from that cookbook and a recipe. I've yet to try it out :).
I need to hand out a few awards! There are 3 I have on hand, some for months! I'll be giving those away soon, be sure to drop by some time within the next week to see who I've passed them along to :).
