When people flip through the pages of my cookbook, they comment on the photos, the creative recipes and the work that must have gone into it. But when I flip through it, I don’t see recipes. I see all the stories behind every single photo. I remember painting backdrops, running around the house trying to find the best lighting, hunting for props in the neighbors’ closets, and my sweet mother running out to buy a churro from Costco so that I could use it to top my churro cupcakes. But when it came to the holiday section, I really had to get creative. St. Patrick’s Day cupcake…. in the middle of July there wasn’t much Patties decor on the shelves. So I did what any 10 year old at heart would do…I glued an extra leaf to a clover and called it a 4 leaf clover.
This cupcake is from my newly published cookbook! If you like this recipe… you should just get the book. A shameless plug for myself, I know. [end-story]
