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

Gingerbread cupcake & brown sugar frosting (link)
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
Chocolate cupcake, coffee filling, light whipped topping

  1. Hi Kim!

    I just discovered your blog. I'm not really commenting on the cupcakes, but on your whole blog.

    I love appetizers!! and I love all of the little bites you have posted. I have bookmarked your site so I can remember to look at it!

    it makes me hungry though! I can't wait to try some of the recipes!

    And I congratulate you on being a PM in IT. I am a code developer at a large credit processing company, and I'm amazed at the time & effort the PM's put in. I keep forgetting they are not technical because they seem to understand so much of the process. Remember that commercial about herding cats? That's what I think a PM position is like! I would never want their jobs!!! :)

    Have a happy Thanksgiving!


  2. Well I hope it worked! They look delicious.
