Win them over with food!

Today was the first day in my new position/building so I spent the better half of yesterday making cupcakes - figured it couldn't hurt to try and win them over with food ;o)

Of course... BOTH of our cameras were dead this morning - so all I have to share is a bad phone picture!

Winter Night
Gingerbread cupcake, eggnog filling, brown sugar frosting

Eggnog filling (from Southern Living Mag)
  1 3/4 cups heavy cream
     1/3 cup sugar
     1/4 cup flour
  2        large eggs
      1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
      1/4 bourbon (optional - I didn't use)
  1         tbsp vanilla

   Whisk together 1st five ingredients in a heavy saucepan.  Cook over med-low heat whisking constantly - 10 to 12 min or until thick like cooled pudding.  Remove from heat - stir in bourbon & vanilla.  Cool to room temp, then cover with plastic - laying directly on it to prevent film and refrigerate 6-24 hrs.

Morning Joe
