cupcake calvalcade

Todays post at A Softer World got me thinking about cupcakes and what kind to make next! I have a big birthday coming up at the end of the month and I am already thinking about what kind of cake to make for that. Maybe as a run up I can do some excellent cupcake sized experiments. Any suggestions as to the kinds of things that you would like to see take cupcake form?

Here are a few from the archives:
Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes with Whiskey Butter cream
Lemon Lingonberry Cupcakes
Triple Ginger Cupcakes with Lime Buttercream Frosting

Some Supper

Salmon with Herb Vinaigrette and Mash

I like to bake salmon on salt. It preserves the moistness of the fish and lends an interesting flavor. To do it, layer kosher coarse salt in a baking dish and set the fish on it. Bake in a pre-heated over at 450 for 15 - 20 min depending on the thickness of the fish. In this instance, I made an herb vinaigrette with mint, thyme, capers, red wine vinegar, lemon and shallots. Pour over the fish with mashed potatoes and sauteed spinach. It made us all feel better after a bought with the swine flu! I kid!
