Cupcake frosting

So, I've finally made my cupcakes sweeter. And I felt extra experimental since it's Saturday and all, so I made a bailey's butter cream. Nomnom
And since I use different frosting's on my cupcakes, the recipe is kinda small if you have 5 racks of them, lol.
I didn't decorate them in any fancy way, so I won't upload a pic :P

Baileys butter cream frosting:
100gr butter
250gr confectioners sugar/powdered sugar
1 teasp baileys
1 teasp cocoa powder (or maybe more, just to dye the frosting a little, optional)
1 tbsp vanilla sugar or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional)
And a tiny amount of milk if this gets to firm.

Whip the butter and sugar white and creamy, add the rest after. Add moisture if it's falling appart. I recommend using a kitchen appliance for this.

All my measurements are not necessarily 100% accurate, and guarantee a perfect result right away. I just add ingredients on the feeling. Read more

How to LBRS

Just me, showing where you should run to reach the boss in LBRS. The reason why i kill this boss is the tier 0.5 hunter gear. What your personal reason may be, I don't know;), but here goes:

One thing i love more about making cupcakes is actually decorating them. But since i was too lazy today to go to the store, i tried to make some cupcakes without butter, milk and eggs! And you know, the batter smells and tastes delicious. It smells like a replica of chocolate soy milk. Om nomnomnomnom..

And here's the recipe ish. I usually add a little here and there.

12 cupcakes, or 13-14. ;)
1 1/2 cups cake flour. (I hadn't heard about this flour before, so i googled and i did find a replacement. So if you don't have this, use 3tbsp of potato flour or cornstarch, then fill up to the 1 1/2 cup mark.)
175 grams of sugar. I felt that this was a lot, so i used 50/50 white and brown sugar. Or 100grams white, 75grams brown to be exact.
3 tbsp cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda (for scandinavians; natron or hjortesalt can be used. note that hjortesalt will make it smell a little ammonia. So either never smell on it, or buy some natron. Maybe you could replace it with more baking powder to)
5 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tbsp vinegar (apple/white)
2 tbsp vanilla sugar, or 1 teaspoon extract
1 1/4 cup water (you can skip the 1/4 if you want. I did, since i felt uncertain because of the texture.)

Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit/175 Celsius.
Mix all the dry in one bowl, while you mix the wet ingredients in another bowl, or the measuring cup. When these are well mixed together, add the wet to the dry slowly while stirring. You can use a mixer if you want, but for me, the spatula goes a long way.
If you make small cupcakes, it takes 3 ish tbspn in each paper cup.
Put them in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Poke one of them with a toothpick to check if the cakes are done. When they're done, move them immediately over to a cooling rack. When completely cold, you can decorate. I prefer buttercream. I'll upload pics when i buy some butter and actually decorate some cupcakes.

Now you'll find this batter extremely watery compared to regular cupcakes recipes. This is naturally because of the water. But don't worry, all the rising ingredients and the potato flour/cornstarch will balance it out and make a moisty yummy cupcake.
If you're thinking.. "why is she using both cups and grams to measure?" truth is, i hate to use conversions. This recipe is based on one from Martha Stewart's archive. And I felt grams would be easier to use on the sugar, since the brown sugar might be clumpy :)

And yes, i bake in my underwear, lol! Read more

I'm happy right now. I was farming in Zul'drak when i decided to look for the time lost proto drake. (nah didn't find him). Then I thought, fine, I'll go to Sholazar and look for the rares there. First, early in my route, I found King Krush. I tried taming him, but i failed. That doesn't matter, he's not that good looking anyway. And since i had used my Call stabled pet to put away my gorilla, I went to nessingwary and got him out from there, and the dino was still alive :) And then he suffered a long and dreadful death from my gorilla's thunderstomps. I took a 5-10 min break, reading where to look for Loque'nahak. And 3min's after i started to look for him, i tagged him with my macro! My heart was pounding like heck. *frostarrow-tame-hope for no gankers*
And so is the story of me finding the pet i've always been looking out for, but never farmed.

My wowhead comment:
Tamed him 15 minutes after i killed king krush. (I tried taming him, but failed.) I was the only hunter in the area and im still shaking. So this 3-6 hour respawn thing is just bullcrap if these two rares share spawntimer.

King krush - loc 30.5 at 04.55 o'clock
Loque - loc 21.27 at 05.11 o'clock

Been looking randomly for this gorgeous pet, and right now I feel like the luckiest hunter alive. Off i go looking for TLPD ;)

Am i happy i stayed up late? Oh yeah!

The Fall

Don't you just love it? Sure, you won't be able to use your fab pumps, but say hello to comfy fashy boots! Layers and layers with soft warm clothes, I love wool.
Anywhooo, I was just brewing a cup of cocoa to warm my freezing body when I realized.. The smell of hot milk is absolutely yummy! I just wanna lick the cup, haha. (Yes, people tell me I'm special.)

*takes a sip of the cocoa*

I believe this is my favorite season for sure. Watching the water pour down outside, with a cup cocoa in my hands, playing WoW, tucked in a faux-leather blanket I got from my brother last christmas. Oh, that reminds me, I have to start shopping presents! Each year I tell myself to start early, I think most "presentlovers" can recognize this syndrome. It's like the new-year goals. "Woosh, what was I saying?"
One thing that annoys me about gifts, is how fast children grow. Feels like its yesterday I gave my nephew a little barking dog marked 5-12 months, or something. Now he probably wants model cars and soon enough his license. I like buying something safe to people, stuff I know they need or want, just with a twist and something personal. I don't just buy gifts anymore, I always put a thought behind it. And since I'm trying to be as green as I can, brown paper with silk bows is the thang. It makes it more personal too somehow. Try it out this christmas, everyone will know which package is from you;)
