This is how you eat a cupcake apparently. Personally I think any of the options are acceptable but then I’m just awfully uncouth.
I made some bunting out of hot cross buns. This combines the two things I love the most; baking and portmanteaus. Actually that's a lie, I prefer cups of tea to portmanteaus but combining tea and baking has been done many times before and this is less interesting. I digress.
I used the fabulous baker brothers hot cross bun recipe but didn't pay much attention to how crazy picky they get over the right type of salt or precise grams. Geeze they are lovely guys but I do not have enough care to pay attention to brushing my hair in the morning let along weighing out precise grams. So here is the Holly 'and not a single f**k was given that day' version. It worked just dandy.Read the rest of this entry »
This. This is the worst thing ever made in cake and this is coming from the girl who has made vagina cakes with teeth.
So myself and my bro are in Manhatten, battening down the hatches for hurricane Irene and decided that we needed Pina Coladas in order to survive. Unfortunatly we only had a few picks of rum in the shop, I know, disaster right? Then the idea came to create a special sort of cocktail just for Irene. Thus the Irenea Colada Shooter was born. And yes we did go out in the hurricane especially for cocktail umbrellas. Yup, smart.
- Layer up some of the white pina colada mix, then the blue stuff, then the rums
- Put in an upside down umbrella
- Mix the start around until you have a mini white stuff tornado in your shooter
- Drink said shooter trying not to poke yourself in the eye with the umbrella
- Repeat until you are drunk enough to be the annoying drunk in a hurricane
