This past weekend, some good friends of mine got married (not the ones I’m making the wedding cupcakes for) in Dallas, Texas. I made these cupcakes in their honor. Some people do book dedications or radio shout-outs, I do cupcake dedications. In fact, if you would like a cupcake created in someone’s honor, just let me know, and we might be able to work something out. The more incentive you give me ($$$), the higher it would go on my to-bake list. I’d design it, give you the recipe and write about the honoree on my blog. Any takers?
I asked the Texas Groom what were his bride’s favorite flavors. He responded with:
“pizza, MEXICAN FOOD!, hamburgers with pickles and onions only.
She also likes red cream soda (big red specifically). and candy corn…”
Since Mexican was in caps and the wedding was in Texas, I decided that was the cupcake route I needed to go.
Question for my readers: Is anyone else a red cream soda fan? Is there actually something different about red cream soda? Does she just like the taste of food coloring?

Note to Terrorists: Do not try to fly with cupcakes bombs, the TSA takes cupcake testing very seriously.
I wouldn’t call these cupcakes crowd favorites, but they got eaten and it was fun to watch everyone’s bemused, “Ummm.. this is interesting” reaction.
Wish me luck! Better yet, head to the Joust Forum at the end of the month and vote for me!
