Chocolate Cupcakes, Large and Small
I got it into my head that I have to make chocolate cupcakes today after work. Specifically devils food cake cupcakes with chocolate butter icing. I found the recipes last night for both in "The Joy of Cooking". However, this morning I'm having second thoughts about the icing part. Perhaps just a dusting of confectioners sugar instead. Simple, but elegant. A little Betty Crocker meets Martha Stewart, presentation-wise.
Some might view my second thoughts as a lack of commitment. I on the other hand see it for what it is, a side affect from my day job. As a senior graphic designer working for a large consulting firm I'm expected to have more than one trick up my sleeve. It's expected that I have several. While pulling the rabbit out of my hat, cramming the clowns into the car and walking the tight rope, I also have to juggle.
We all have to live with our own psychosis. While it would make more sense if I followed through with the original plan, it also wouldn't hurt if some cupcakes were large, others small, some with chocolate butter icing and others with confectioners sugar. Seems like a fair compromise.
