Fangirls, if you follow my personal accounts anywhere, you know that I am obsessed with Moana. It’s an absolutely gorgeous movie that features a girl who was chosen by the ocean to grab a demigod and save the world. So when it came out on Tuesday, I was inspired to make some cupcakes that were reminiscent of the movie.
I have to let you in on my latest intense Fangirl experience, friends. I’m not entirely sure what the rules are about fangirling over something you technically haven’t experienced, but as far as I’m concerned it is very possible. I haven’t ever been to Momofuku Milk Bar in New York City, but I’ve been crushing hard on their sweet treats since I was given their cookbook a few months ago. So since I’m not at their shop to try it out, I decided to try my hand at one of their unique sweets.
Hey Fangirls! A couple weeks ago I used some Christmas money to get myself Lauren Lopez’s gluten & dairy free cookbook: These Treats Don’t Suck. It’s a fun and honest book, and makes me excited together baking! I know I usually talk about novels but wow this is just so fun to read!
Alright Fangirls, its story time. When Natalie and I went to the Jim and The Povolos minotaur NYC show, we brought cookies for everyone. But we made one big one for Jim Povolo because in my mind, he is the most majestic and perfect of all human beings. But as we were waiting to meet him, with our little brown bag of tasty cookie, Jeff Blim asked us if it was brownies. He then said that if it is brownies, he is going to steal it from Jim Povolo and eat it himself. So in the spirit of Fangirling and Starkids, we made him some brownies!
Greeting, Fangirls! Continuing along with our apple themed dishes this month, I bring you another dessert of delicious, traditional apple pie. You can’t beat classics like pie, Fangirls. This recipe is taken from the original and all knowing Better Homes & Gardens cook book, with a few little changes that I’ve added myself. Yum!
Natalie made me a Castle Cake!
Captain America Cake!
This is the simplified version of the recipe though, as my friend and I are poor college students who don’t want to spend a bunch of money on fondant and 8 boxes of cake mix.
