Yummy Goodness

12:00 PM

Have you ever seen Gosford Park? Well, one of the main characters is played by Maggie Smith, who also plays Professor McGonagall on Harry Potter. Well, she cracks me up in Gosford Park because she loves to eat and every time she sits down to her food, she claps her hands together and says, "Oh, Yummy, yummy, yummy!" Makes me laugh every time.

Then I found myself saying the very same thing yesterday when I iced these fabulous cupcakes I made! I borrowed a cupcake cookbook from Lauren and just dove right in. My first experiment?

White Mountain Chocolate Cupcakes

The cupcakes are chocolate sour cream (seriously YUM!) and the frosting is a meringue-like whipped concoction that makes me want to dive in. So good. It was a little bit of sweetness in the middle of a bad-news kind of day.
