I told my calorie-counting self to let me just enjoy my fun and soon I was knee deep in brandied peach batter and sangria and hot toddies and red wine frosting. Yes, I said RED WINE FROSTING.
Here are a few of my favorite photos from the night:
Every time I head over to the BCAE for a cooking/baking class, in addition to great instruction and amazing facilities, I always come away with a few good nuggets of information that I can't believe I've lived without. For example, did you know that once you use your baking soda in the fridge to keep odors at bay it becomes totally ineffective as a baking ingredient? Dammit. At least I can blame all of my past disasters on that factoid.
But by far, the best treat of the night was that whipped cream and sprinkles concoction you see above. The "cake frosting shot" involves vanilla vodka, amaretto, pineapple juice, a cherry and a general feeling that all is right with the world. I had two. And a half.
Interested in taking a cupcake and cocktails class with Dustin? (You totally should). There's one scheduled each month from now through April. Click here for more info.
