In Sweden we talk about cupcake-blogs, which stands for blogs that sugarcoat life and only show the pretty things, usually written by young women who likes to eat macaroons and cupcakes. Today is my time to do some cupcake-blogging and a little parental bragging at the same time. Hope you can stand it ;) This is my 12 year old daughter's first attempt at cupcakes, and I was pretty floored when I saw the result. She has such a flair for this sort of things, a trait the she hasn't inherited from me, that's for sure! Plus they were absolutely yummy. Sometimes cupcakes are more for the eye, and hide a rather bland muffins underneath, but these were great inside and out. The cupcakes were for my boyfriend's birthday which we are celebrating today
Oh, and he got the best present from his brother - a ZZ Top mug! They were pretty huge in Sweden back in the 80's, like the ultimate cool band. I wonder if they are still around?
