Happy New Year!

Er…I mean, happy random August day? I’m quite a few months early with these celebratory cupcakes, but I don’t care – they are delicious! And it doesn’t hurt that I now have about half a bottle of champagne that I’ll need to finish up either.

They don’t look their best because I think my frosting is every so slightly on the runny side – and I ran out of powdered sugar so I couldn’t just add more to thicken it up a bit. I know, I know, I could have run granulated sugar through my food processor to make powdered sugar, but frankly, I didn’t feel that motivated to do it.

Also, I’m hoping some time in the refrigerator will give them an opportunity to think about what they’ve done and pull their acts together.


I need a sparkler.
