What a coincidence, speaking of cupcakes (in reference to Georgia's post), in celebration for Eidil Fitri (end of the fasting month of Ramadan) this year (which was yesterday), I made two types of cupcakes--both recipes from Ina Garten: Chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting and Carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. They were both excellent --the carrot cupcakes, in particular, was very popular with our guests ('tis the frosting!). I also made madeleines (recipe from Joy of Baking) and two types of cookies. The cookie recipes--lemon poppy seed and peanut butter, chocolate and cinnamon cookies-- were from a Martha Stewart cookbook. It was fun baking and having family and friends enjoy the goodies.
(sorry, I forgot to take pictures...but you can imagine them luscious and delicious!)
Eid Mubarak (Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri)!
