Yes, it’s true! What can I say, I like making food. Besides, the more cooking I do in general, the faster I will be at cutting and dicing (much to Chris & Andy’s pleasure), and the better I will be at creating new recipes & trouble-shooting ‘opportunities’ that may come my way.

Yesterday I had a go at making Chocolate Chip Mint Cupcakes with monster faces. I enjoyed the process quite a lot, as did the cupcake eaters. As far as the frosting goes, I put a layer of white, then three layers of my desired color. I’d suggest to anyone decorating dark cupcakes with homemade frosting to apply 2 layers of white and maybe 3-4 layers of a color if you really want the frosting color to pop.
