Cupcake II

The above is of course a cupcake, produced by yours truly! - since I wasn't happy with the first one I consider this my very first raw cupcake, ahhh. I decided to cheat, the idea from this post at Shannon Marie's blog - which is of course also where I got myself an e-book of raw cupcake recipes. I botched my first cupcake attempt byt trying to tweak the recipe before mastering the original, which has to be a chef's foremost faux-pas. So, I decided to use Shannons's little shortcut and break out a Larabar and focus in stead on learning how to get the icing right. I have a very soft spot for the Peanut Butter larabars right now, but went with the cashew cookie for the cupcake - and then went strictly step-by-step with the icing. I topped it off with extra large frozen blueberries - absolute yum!

Oh, and Ellen? Shannon has blogged about it again today. I'd say it's about time Ellen sets her eyes on/teeth in those raw cupcakes, yes sir. That's why I made it look like she's...almost...eating the cake. Yay to Shannon Marie for going after her goals...
