Last week was hubby’s birthday and he wanted Carrot Cake. It was his birthday, so I willingly obliged. Now it is one week later and it is my son’s birthday. He is 18.
WOW!!! HE’S 18!!!
I asked him what he wanted for his birthday. I knew it would be either Crawfish Etouffe or Shrimp Creole. We are eating Shrimp Creole tonight. (He is soooo predictable!)
I was hoping he would choose something different for dessert. It was not to be. “Carrot Cake!” he said with a
mischievous evil grin. Why do they always go for the jugular…… We had finally eaten that luscious 3 layer Carrot Cake from Emeril, but it was HIS BIRTHDAY. I gave in with a large SIGH! “How about Carrot Cupcakes this time? That way,” says I with my fingers crossed behind my back, ” you can take them with you when you go to your sister’s house this weekend.” Yeah! He caved. Men are so easy!!. I used the same recipe, baked them for 16 – 18 minutes and ended up with 30 cupcakes.
and I just topped them with some frosting
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SON! THESE CUPCAKES ARE FOR YOU!!!
