Honey Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting
As you may have seen on the news, New England was hit by A LOT of snow this year. I’m not even sure if Boston is snowed out yet! They got more snow than we did in Connecticut; however, for a straight two months, Mondays in Connecticut meant the anticipated snow day or delay and shoveling.
Due to all of this snow and plowing, the roads now resemble Martian craters. Plows are awesome, don’t get me wrong, but they do a lot of damage to the roads. Driving in a straight line is near to impossible these days. There’s even a radio station that has a segment called “Tell’em Why You Mad” and at least once a day someone complains about the pot holes.
Can you guess what happened to me today?
If you guessed that I got a flat tire, then you are correct. I’m blaming the pot holes since there was no sign of a screw or nail in my tire.
I began my day around 11 AM and was planning on going to workout and to Target, but as I was driving to Target, I heard the rattle and my car felt a little funny. I pulled over and discovered the damage had been done. Luckily, my partner-in-crime rescued me and was able to take off the tire and replace it with a donut. Not the kind of donut I pictured I’d be dealing with on my weekend. I totally treated my beau to lunch after all of his “what-a-guy” assistance.
I did accomplish a workout, shop at Target, and make a few recipes that I can’t wait to share with you all later in the week. So, despite the minor setback, I’m lucky I have a super-awesome boyfriend and a mother who generously allowed me to borrow her car. I tried even harder to avoid the potholes in her vehicle.
I’m excited to share these cupcakes with you all. I’m more of a vanilla fan, so these really hit the spot. The cake is slightly-sweet and pairs perfectly with the white chocolate buttercream frosting. I dyed the frosting blue, green, and yellow and piped it together for an Easter twist.
I brought these to my friend’s birthday last night and they were a hit. According to Stan (Remember Stan? The one who sold his Dave Matthews Band ticket to tailgate instead?), these honey cupcakes pair really well with Allagash Curieux.
