Eid Mubarak

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)!


  1. Oh, Lin, I think you outdid your Boston cupcake sessions, by the sound of this post!!!

  2. heee i did go cupcake crazy. my nieces and nephew helped iced the cakes which was fun! we still have tons of cookies (like 12 different kinds-some made, some bought) and it has been a non stop eating fest. i have to go on a no-cupcake, no-cookies diet next week!
