Rush to your nearest comic book store, or your desk where the computer is so you can order online King Cat Classix by John Porcellino. John’s comics are awesome!!!! (available at drawnandquartely.com as well as amazon.com)
Here’s John at a recent book signing in Boulder, Colorado. (if you look closely you can see me in comic form in the poster on the right, how cool is that!)
I love cupcakes. I buy them at the store every once in a while and I bought a muffin tin last week so I thought I’d try to make my own. I got a mix for the cakes, but all the pre-made frosting at the store had trans fats in them (why?) So I thought, how hard could it be to make frosting? I wanted a creamy frosting that didn’t use shortening and I found a recipe on allrecipes.com. It called for flour, ok a little weird but it promised creamy frosting. I made it and it was weird. You can taste the flour. Bleh. They look pretty good though. I’m now on a search for a non-yucky frosting for my next attempt.
