Chocolate cupcakes 
29th-May-2008 09:59 pm
The sky looked like it was constipated this morning and could barely muster a decent spit. It did a good job of hiding the sun and the result was a slate grey wash over everything.

By the time the clouds managed to push through and discharge its liquid contents in a proper shower, it was the end of a work day and I had made it safely home... though a little damp.

I promised a photo of these. I got hit with a chocolate craving, so baked these after dinner while Hell's Kitchen was on.

Chocolate cupcakes with a Morello cherry filling (the SO's mum gave us a whole full jar of them), laced with Absolut Vodka Ruby Red (the grapefruit flavour - the best Absolut flavoured vodka ever!) and topped with a dark chocolate Philly cream icing. I love making Philly cream icing, cuz it holds its shape really well. Unfortunately I don't have a bigger nozzle for my cake piper, or it would've looked a lot prettier. In this case, a butter knife would simply have to do.

So sinful, but oh so good.

But it's true! I could just see this scrunched up expression in the sky from all its efforts to rain. It finally managed to and did so all through the night, and into this morning. And the sky still looks stone grey.

Blame me and my camera. (^_-)-☆
I'm compensating for not being able to eat out on the cheap, like back in Singapore. Laksa, cha kway tiao, lor mee, bak chor mee, oyster omelette, claypot rice, nasi lemak, roti prata... *dies foaming at the mouth*

*LOL* I love you too, but alas! Our love would have been doomed. XD
And thanks! It helps when you have your own kitchen to patter around in. (^_-)-☆
