I know I haven't been posting about things I'm doing outside of writing lately. In fact, I know I haven't been posting at all lately. Sorry 'bout that.

Anyway, I've spent a good portion of my week baking. Did I mention my love of making sweets in an earlier entry? Sometimes I think I'll try making an actual meal but, no, fuck that. If it doesn't require sugar and flour I want no part in it.

This week has been cupcake week.

For the 4th of July I made red velvet cupcakes which, unlike normal chocolate or vanilla, require weird ingredients like buttermilk and vinegar. I've never spent so much on baking ingredients alone but it was for a holiday and I'd dedicated myself to them and told all my friends and blah blah blah. Anyway. I ended up not eating any since I find cream cheese frosting nasty but everyone else seemed to like them. I delivered them to my friends the morning of July 4th wearing a red, white, and blue outfit with matching nails. I've never felt so patriotic in my life.

Today was mini chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting day. I made three batches since I'm taking them up to the place I volunteer at tomorrow. Hopefully they'll be well received.

Also, I need a baking tag. Any suggestions?
