Ali's Cupcakes!

Ali was so inspired and excited to make cupcakes. Bless that boy's heart. He thinks he is a genius! He thinks he is the best baker and is taking all the credit!? What the..? Well, he is great. He is my boy. However, I ain't raisin' no macho man. I come from the loins of a Latino macho man and am married to an Arab. In case he reads.....

I made Ali, or reminded Ali to give his Momma credit for the bits SHE did. Which was a lot! He was so patient but not so patient because I made him clean the kitchen first; then bake, then clean the kitchen again. I had to go behind him, of course and wash some items again like the food processor shoot that we put the chocolate through and all the utensils and bowls with butter on them cuz they were still greasy! The walls too had chocolate all over them! Good thing they are tiled or I would have been all over the walls too!

We had some friends over last night to play Eclipse with us and have pizza (not on South Beach) and Coke 0 and then the cupcakes. Let me tell ya, if my Ali EVER invites you over, you SHOULD come! He was great! Lovely little host he is!

So, here are the cupcakes just out of the oven....

Ali frosted the chocolate cupcakes with Peanut Butter frosting. OMG! Too good! His own little decorations too with the mini chocolate chips and the almond! Awww...

Then, after he was all done cleaning up the kitchen; he ran into the hallway and sat down and started rubbing his feet! He was really proud of himself!

Thanks for stopping by!
