Yup, it's actually really good. Just not what I was trying to make.
The orange cupcakes are mediocre. I mean, they taste good but I know they can be a lot better.
I've had a craving for hostess orange cupcakes lately. Since they don't seem to exist anymore I thought I'd make something similar. First is the orange cupcake. Then I'll work on some killer orange glaze. I've already got a decent custard creme recipe, though I'll want to tweak it for the cupcake filling.
I took my Mom to a doctors appointment. No bad news from the doctor today.
On the way we went to a second hand store. I scored a pair of sb-cr33 floor speakers for 10 bucks a piece. They look to be in good shape. I just need to pick up a decent stereo head unit someplace now.
I was planning on taking the speakers out of the boxes and painting them black. Since I know we have some pretty serious audio guys in here, should I do anything with the insides of the boxes while I've got them open? I'd think about leaving them as is, but one of them got over spray from some white spray paint on the side of it.
I also picked up a nice little ceramic jug, two sets of crystal, and a really nice table cloth.
