Actually Tuesdays' Topics are MAY I tell you something about me?
I bake cupcakes. Not professionally, but it's sort of a hobby. I think if the whole film thing doesn't pan out, and the book fails, then I'll open a small bakery called Bookcakes. That is a long about way to say, I bake cupcakes with literary themes. Or at least based on literary works. How did this happen? Well it all started when my BFF posted a recipe for snicker-doodle cupcakes.
There's no literary idea there, but it was the start of my cupcake frenzy. I'd already been addicted to shows like Cupcake Wars. Plus, when I get stuck creatively, I find my way by baking. Like how some authors take showers or long walks. I bake. Which is great because then I have tasty snacks while I write.
I mention my BFF and her Facebook cooking recs because she also got me started on the baking with books track. Now a book from my childhood and a cupcake from my adulthood: the Butter Beer Cupcake.
Doesn't it look yummy? They are a class favorite. I've made them a few times and every time they fly out of the pan as if they're attached to Nimbus 2000.
Now familiar with books and baking, I became the magnet for all recipes book related. In honor of a very special movie, that I very much looked forward to, I baked Girl On Fire Cupcakes. Which should be called Will Set Your Mouth On Fire Cupcakes.
(Also a cameo of other books on my shelf)
You need a glass of milk with these cupcakes. 2 tablespoons of cayenne pepper will set your tongue on fire.
So there you have it. What will I do next, no idea. But I am willing to take suggestions.
