Cupcakes and ATCs

January 10, 2008 at 8:39 pm (art, cooking) (, , )

I have enough time for a quick post. Today was another interesting day. So when the going gets tough, the tough make Simple Vanilla and Agave Nectar Cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. These are so delicious. They almost have a buttery flavor even though they have no butter or shortening. I’m not a huge non-chocolate cake person. I would usually want frosting, but these babies are perfect just as they are.

I’ve participated in the Creative Mom Podcast Artist Trading Card exchange for almost a year now. Most months, I procrastinate. I may know exactly what I’m going to do, but I don’t sit down and get it done. This month I am ready. The theme is “Beginnings.” This month is also Tu B’Shevat, the New Year for Trees. This Jewish holiday was a way to calculate a tree’s age. After a certain age, you could eat the fruit of that tree.  Many people celebrate by planting trees or eating fruit. I celebrated by drawing my own new tree.
