Remove From Heat. Set Aside to Cool

Martha Stewart's Lavender-Iced Brownie Cupcakes. Yum.

I want to open up a bakery. Yep, you heard me. At first I wanted to open up a cupcake shop. That dream started back in 2001 when I decided I wanted to be a pastry chef. Meh. That didn't happen. Then, in 2003 my friend and I wanted to open up a bakery that sold bagels AND cupcakes. Weird, yes. Long story, yes. Don't ask...

Clearly, that didn't happen.

Clearly.

Anyway, I know what you're thinking. Everyone and their chihuahua bakes cupcakes. I know! This cupcake hype has hit our faces with sweet, sugary goodness. They are EVERYWHERE! However, I could NEVER go into competition with Retro Bakery. That's just down right blasphemy. What needs to happen on my side of town is a unique sweets bakery. Candy bar pies. Compost cookies and dipped apples. Margarita macaroons. Balsamic Strawberry Shortcake. Lavender marshmallows. German Chocolate Sauerkraut cupcakes.Chili ANYTHING. Soda Fountain anyone?

Right? I'm seriously still thinking about it. Now, if only my sisters would move down here and make this happen. Ahem...
