Simplistic Complexity

Whoa. I don't know how to describe how amazing these cupcakes turned out. They are almond/raspberry/ricotta cupcakes. They are so moist, yet quite sweet but in a very pleasant not to overpowering way. The flavors are extremely complex but simple. Excuse my silly reference, but it is, like a party in your mouth. A very elegant party, but a party none the less. I'm bringing them down to our friend Beth tomrrow in Seattle who is making us lunch. I wanted something that would knock her socks off. I think these will do, I'm dubbing them "the best cupcakes I've ever made". And they are, quite literally, that. Seriously amazing. That's all I can say. I'll post finished product pics tomorrow or Sunday. We had a few people over this evening for a backyard bon-fire and "make your own sushi" which was fantastic. (I'll be posting my sushi too, thanks to's fab tips). Also look forward to future posts about my first attempt at Matcha (green tea) cupcakes, and some damn fine coconut shrimp. For now, enjoy this porntastic batter picture. Mmm.
