A Cupcake a Pop: Nearing my 100th Post!

/ Thursday, January 22, 2009

I am back in the USA, back at my apartment and back in action. Hello lovies. I love starting blogs with cake pictures. They're just so happy. This was the delicious whole wheat carrot cake Katherine made in honor of my return. I lack the recipe. Katherine if you would be so kind to post the link on a comment, I'd greatly appreciate it!

BIG NEWS: We are fast approaching my 100th post on Food & Femininity! Tomorrow evening I will be hosting a "One Cupcake A Pop: 100 cupcakes for 100 posts" party to celebrate the occasion with close friends. There will be food, fellowship and take away boxes! By all means if you're in Manhattan and would like to join us, let me know. The menu:

Berry's Red Velvet Cupcakes
Olive Oil Lavender Cupcakes
Banana-Chip Cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
Greek Yogurt Cupcakes
Chocolate Cupcakes soaked in a Balsamic Simple Syrup

All recipes will be posted along with photos tomorrow evening post party (or Sunday morning depending on how crazy cupcake eaters get!)
Just another note, I made Mama Katherine some french toast before I went back to my apartment using the cinnamon bread we received for Christmas. The recipe is from Tyler's Ultimate. This is an upside down apple french toast with cranberries and pecans. Think of it as a breakfast tart tatin! Below you can see what the french toast looks like before it's inverted. On the bottom of the skillet is a caramel sauce, apple sections, cranberries and pecans. The custard soaked bread is layered on top and baked in the oven until golden.

Once the french toast has baked and cool, it's inverted onto a plate et voila! If you're looking for an impressive breakfast dish for company (family or "special friend") this recipe it beautiful to look at and absolutely delicious. Try not to burn the caramel during the first few steps. If the caramel becomes too dark it will have a very potent flavor.

Since the recipe itself is so sweet I neglected to add maple syrup to my plate. A little yogurt spiced with cinnamon would have been a great condiment.
