Andrea suggested I make Guinness cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day, and I probably should have.
Instead, I decided to make green velvet cupcakes, using this recipe.
one virtue of making cupcakes in the afternoon is that my pictures end up looking sharper in sunlight.
but even better lighting can't obscure the grossness of army green cake.
I frosted them in cream cheese frosting and decorated half with piped shamrocks.
the taste is not very good. perhaps a bit overbaked? but I only baked for 16 minutes instead of the 20-25 recommended. maybe I can blame it on the altitude.
