Some girls love being surprised with flowers...my husband knew I would love being surprised with a picture book of cupcakes. I was even more excited when I found the section titled "Cupcakes for Adults". I found these strawberry margarita cupcakes in 200 Cupcakes by Joanna Farrow. True to form, I made a couple modifications. I'll post my version of Ms. Farrow's recipe here:
Whoa! That's probably the longest title yet! So, I wanted to show our appreciation for one of our guest photographers, Erika. She was able to capture one of Mrs. Murphy's booze-infused creations when a camera wasn't available. I ran into Erika in the elevator and discovered that she was gluten-free. An interesting concept: could I find a booze-infused gluten-free recipe? I found this recipe on The Cupcake Project. It called for rum, NO PROBLEM!
Look at these little darlings!
Quinoa? I didn't even know the correct pronunciation, let alone where to find it in the grocery store or what it even looked like. Found it in the wonderful bin section of our neighborhood Winco...LOVE Winco...LOVE the bin section...Anyway, it was pricey for a little-bitty grain. I was up for this challenge!
