Steph and I made chocolate cupcakes and frosting from scratch. We also made cupcakes from a box and topped them with store bought frosting. Then we had a taste test for dinner. We liked the scratch cupcakes best.
If you've ever heard Bill Cosby's routine about chocolate cake for breakfast, you'll know you can rationalize a meal of cupcakes. But just to make sure, I cooked up some bacon, too. After squeezing all the grease out I put the cooked bacon back on the griddle and drizzled it with real maple syrup. Sticky, sweet greasy bacon to top off sticky, sweet chocolate cupcakes. And a glass of milk. And smiles.
Sometimes the best meals are the ones you have the most fun with.
