what the hell is wrong with me?cupcakes and cupcake like objects.

you'd think after making every single cupcake from Vegan Cupcakes Takeover the World
I wouldn't be making cupcakes ever again.But i've done it twice this week.first the Jelly Dones,now Boston vs Brooklyn Cream Pie Cakes.

I got a weird craving for these suddenly last week,so I made them last night.So good.mmm ganache.and custard filling.I remember when I was in Brooklyn, Terry saying that even though she was sick of cupcakes she could still go for a boston cream pie one.I understand why,these are so good.and of course no buttercream.last time i made these was last october for a potluck.that's over a year.





yeah,the custard rules.

Daniel and Maria enjoyed some after being tuckered out from listening to Cher and playing Lego:
they stopped smiling to appear "cool" after they realized I was taking pictures:

and for some cupcake like objects:muffins!

Carrot Pineapple Sunshine Muffins from Veganomicon.

"Happy fun-time tropical joy in a tender widdle muffin."

Terry got it 100% right.these are SO good.moist,tangy,tropical,not too sweet,muffiny...



oh and i forgot,I made a bunch of different types of peanut butter cookies a few weeks ago.
Soft Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies from kelly/garrick's zine,Crispy Peanut Butter Cookies from vwav and the best peanut butter oatmealies ever.

I love those cupcakes! I'm pretty impressed that you did ALL the cupcake recipes in the book... Are these ones your favorite? And mmmm, peanut butter cookies.

Oh my gosh, I just looked at your other post and can't believe you made every single cupcake from that book.

The brooklyn/boston ones were the first ones I made from that book. Ah, memories...

p.s. which are your favorites? I have a 4-way tie between chocolate/mint, mexican hot chocolate, lime/coconut, and tiramisu, with tiramisu in slight lead.
