Valentine’s, cupcakes, and DC

Valentine’s day is almost upon us! So it’s really this huge coincidence that I happened upon a site called LilSugar while researching recipes from Georgetown Cupcakes.

You just can’t help it. When you’re watching a show where these two sisters are making cupcakes, even if they’re cussing each other out or something goes horribly wrong, you kind of flash a dumb smile and go, “hey that looks like fun!” Baking’s a strangely contagious thing, I guess.

Well anyway, so I was looking for recipes by them. And struck gold.
Check out recipes for their Red Velvet (with vanilla cream cheese frosting), Strawberry Lava Fudge, and Chocolate Ganache cupcakes in this interview from lilsugar.com.

These photos are from the LilSugar
site. They’re so pretty I wanted to
put them on mine. But, to clear any
confusion, I’d like to point out that
they so don’t belong to me.

Dunno about you, but I’m very thankful for a chance to make a yummy cupcake at home (that doesn’t come from a box). And they do say it’s easy. So, after hitting the grocery store for some apple cider vinegar, I’m going to try my hand at the Red Velvet. And it’s just in time for Valentine’s day! Even Sophie and Katherine say Red Velvet is their number one request for the hearty (get it?) holiday. I feel so ahead of the game. =-)
