chocolate shavings / quick fix

Look at that poor little guy.

He's gonna get grated.

Sometimes life's a bummer.

But you know, if I faced the same impending doom, at least I'd be at peace knowing that I would be sprinkled on top of a cupcake.

You should be so lucky.

Anyways, for school my husband had the option to either participate in and volunteer at a chocolate fair/wine tasting, or to just bring something to submit.
He opted out for the later, and I had the opportunity to make cupcakes!

I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe and for the frosting I used Pioneer Woman's That's the Best Frosting I've Ever Had recipe.  I'll admit that while the frosting was quite nice, I personally prefer a nice cream cheese frosting.  But everyone has their own opinions.

Well, I baked, frosted and packed the cupcakes, and then...
... and then I decided that I had to try one.
Just one you know?
Like, I made them, I can have one.

You don't think they'll notice right?
What do you mean you 'think they will'?
What's that?
An empty spot?
With a little cupcake wax?
You spotted that?

Ok fine,

... there, I fixed it.

You are so funny Becky, you make me laugh. Good job on the cupcakes, i bet they tasted so good!

Um...random thought...would you rather be called becka or becky?

My name is Becka said...

Aw, I'm Becky to you Andrea. By blog and blogspace I tend to sign off as Becka, and to my mom I am thought of as Becca, so sometimes I sign off as that. I know I'm totally inconsistent, it's just I don't feel a huge urge to be one specific thing. Thanks for asking. Don't worry, I probably won't notice what you call me as long as it isn't mean :)
