Happy Birthday!

Today is (was?) my Dad's birthday, as well as Bill Mumy's birthday, so I thought I would make cupcakes.

From scratch. And they're vegan.

They're green tea cupcakes!









They were surprisingly easy to make, even the little marzipan flowers weren't that difficult. The hardest part was getting the ingredients. I had to go to an Asian grocery to get matcha green tea powder, which was sort of scary and kind of in not the best neighborhood. But it was an adventure and I think worth it. I haven't tried an actual cupcake yet, but the batter was quite tasty! Best part about vegan cupcakes is that you don't need to worry about salmonella when you're licking the spoon! (Not that any of us did anyway...) I want to make more fancy cupcakes and take pictures of them. I feel like I need a better camera. Or better lighting in my apartment. Or both. Anyway, it's way past my bedtime and as agonizingly true as it is, tomorrow is Friday and not Saturday. Ugh. Later, skaterz. (Happy birthday, Bill! Happy birthday, Dad!)

PS - I totally remember why watching Lost live sucks. I HAVE TO WAIT A WHOLE WEEK BEFORE THE NEXT EPISODE?! GAH! But seriously, this is the first time I've been really upset about the writers strike. HOW CAN YOU ONLY GIVE ME HALF A SEASON OF LOST! I HATE YOU! I NEED ANSWERS!! But, the fact that they're using viral marketing again? WIN! Is it Thursday yet?!!?

Mmm cupcakes. We should hammer out details of our business over the road trip, what else are we going to do during our 18-hour a day car rides? :)
Oh - and if you're looking for a not-so-sketchy Asian grocery in the future, there's one in Vernon in that little plaza across from Vernon Circle. It's in the plaza with Carvel, Between Rounds, and the gigantic Bank of America!

Can we make a dinner-party date in the VERY near future, btw? :)

That's what I thought, but I tried calling them and first they didn't answer and then when someone did, it sounded like I was calling someone's house who doesn't speak English.

As long as by "very near future" you mean March. lol
