Happy Purim!

Well, technically Purim is over since it's after sundown, but I wasn't feeling well yesterday, and I was gone all day today, so Happy Belated Purim! For all the non-Jews, that's the celebration of Queen Esther preventing what would have been the first Holocaust (read your Bible, she has her own chapter.)

Anyway, my church, Heritage Fellowship, had a Purim celebration after shabbat last night, and I volunteered to make cupcakes because I love baking. I was debating between snickerdoodle cupcakes, , and Italian cream, a recipe from Cupcakes! From the Cake Doctor by Anne Byrn. I chose the Italian cream, for unknown reasons. Or maybe because I love coconut.

I did two different types of decoration; one with frosting and a little coconut on top and one with coconut thoroughly mixed with the frosting. :)

They were pretty good, but obviously not as good as the red velvet cupcakes I took to church before since 16 of the Italian creams were left when I left church and only 4 of the red velvet were left the last time.

Note to self: Stick with chocolate when trying to please the masses.
