attended a Halloween party, served leftovers for dinner, dressed my two goblins up for trick-or-treating, ran around after them as they each collected close to THREE POUNDS of candy, and fell asleep as soon they did.
So, later in the week I finally got around to making these cake, er, I mean cupcakes. I wanted to bring them to a small gathering so I figured rather than making the hostess serve pieces of cake, I'd just make them into single servings myself. These cakes were really cute and sophisticated at the same time. The icing and the sugared beet chips are absolute winners. The cake itself certainly doesn't taste beet-y but seemed more like a muffin to me than a cake. Probably due to the lack of butter. But these muffins, or cakes, or whatever you call them were moist and tasty. The ladies were all impressed with my culinary skills. And no one felt guilty eating a cupcake, since, after all, they were full of beets.
