i had a phone interview for our local co-op.
i want this job so bad!
to celebrate i went to the kitchen!
i had an idea so i made a batch of cupcakes...
it needs a little work but i think it's definitely an idea i may submit to chockylit's cupcake roundup.

i'm also working on a few other old favorites (ie peanut butter and jelly... waffle... haha i have ideas!)

my camera is being finicky today. maybe its the lighting in the new apartment, either way i've gotta work on taking some better pictures of these cupcakes

*drum roll*

it's a tomato soup cupcake! (with peppered brie and thyme "icing" and a candied tomato slice)

i didn't count the oil that was in the tomato soup. so i definitely used too much butter-- not enough that it takes away from the taste, but enough to feel a little greasy. but its definitely a cupcake (not a muffin). i was worried about the flavor being too "muffin-y" because i used whole wheat flour, it was definitely the right choice for this cupcake- its still sweet and light & fluffy. i like these a whole lot more then i thought i would. i can barely keep ian from gobbling them all up-- which is fine by me since i definitely don't need to be eating them!

ill keep working on it and let you know how it goes! we have a bbq to go to on weds. to meet all of his fellow classmates, i hope to have it perfected by then.
