daily dessert

This is the pretty little cupcake I picked up at Betty Bakery earlier this week. I like the silver and colored sprinkle combination.

I was baking a pan of dark chocolate brownies for a Fanny & Jane order on Wednesday night so the whole house was filled with a most enticing warm chocolate aroma. And Kevin who rarely, if ever, craves sweet stuff must have become intoxicated by it because he said, “Can I have one of your brownies before bed?”  I had to tell him no! Aww. I felt bad, but the entire pan was promised to one of Faryn’s coworkers for her birthday so I didn’t have a choice.

Instead I offered him half of the Betty Bakery cupcake I’d been saving. He seemed to really enjoy it and he too admired the sprinkles. I tucked away the other half for later and I finally ate it last night, along with two other small desserties – a bowl of fresh fruit and a little bite from my aforementioned brownie pan – it was a piece too misshapen to be included in the batch for Faryn’s coworker, but not too misshapen to be joyfully consumed by yours truly. (Sorry, Kev.)

The brownie*, topped by request with ganache and decorative white frosting, was very yummy although a bit dry from having spent the whole day battling the humidity on my kitchen counter. The fresh fruit was delicious and really hit the spot. And the cupcake – well, I wasn’t impressed.

Since I really liked the ring-a-ding I had from Betty Bakery a few days ago, and since so many of their other treats looked really unique and yummy, I don’t believe this disappointing cupcake is a true reflection of their wares. It wasn’t awful, just nothing special and the chocolate wasn’t very good.

Can’t win ’em all.

*So about brownies: Faryn’s coworker is vegan and she ordered two pans of brownies from us for her birthday – a regular pan and an eggless pan. We’d never made anything eggless before and considering that a pan of our regular brownies uses six eggs (!) it was a potential challenge. But Faryn did some research, found the right ingredients, had a few moments of panic (but that’s nothing new) and ultimately ended up with an INCREDIBLY DELICIOUS pan of eggless brownies! I only had a small taste when I stopped by her office to drop off the regular brownie batch, but that was all I needed to wonder if holy cow, am I a vegan? (No. No way.) So congrats to Faryn who deserves a huge round of applause for inventing our very own Fanny & Jane Dark Chocolate Eggless Brownies! YAY!
