me bake pretty one day

i have to admit, i just adore the way cupcakes look. and taste. do they really taste different from a slice of cake? i think so--if for no other reason that they're cutely proportioned.

sadly, i never get to make cupcakes. hubby no likey, and they're kind of a pain in the butt if you're just making them for yourself and the kids--especially when the kids are just as happy with a handful of chocolate chips. but today i was having company, so i decided to try Martha Stewart's Chocolate Graham Cracker Cupcakes with Toasted Marshmallow. i was prepared. i was excited!

then sadly, my company couldn't make it (i really hope your son feels better, heather!) but i trudged on with the cupcake process. easy boxed cake and canned frosting cupcakes these are not, but oh...are they yummy! and pretty!!



don't they just make you want to take a bite right out of the picture?? i especially want to just take a tiny nibble out of all those nice browned marshmallowy matterhorns.

now, if only i can keep from eating them all myself. i must resist...

You've got me salivating over here. I'm a huge baked Alaska fan, so those cupcakes would be like winning the lottery or something. Not that I know what that feels like. I did win $5 once...
