Torch Cupcakes and a Cafe Misto

Posted on

Last night, after being extremely tired and getting home kind of late due to an evening Body Pump class…I remembered that I had committed myself to make cupcake torches for an evening reception at one of the hotels that I work at.  The reception is Olympic themed…and me being the theme-lover that I am thought it would be a GREAT idea to make these cute cupcake torches that I saw on Pinterest…

They look a lot better than I thought they were going to turn out.

 

They are just cupcakes made in ice cream cones and topped with orange and yellow swirled icing.

 

The difficult part…transporting them.  I finally got them in the box, but now I am worried about getting them out for the event tonight!

 

They look good, although I was tired and not really in the mood to frost a ton of cupcakes last night.  The process, however, was a tad bit messy…

 

All in a day’s work!

Breakfast

Last night I prepped a bowl of overnight oats with some raw cacao (chocolate) action along with almond butter.  I recently made a batch of chocolate almond butter that tasted just like brownie batter…that is the flavor I was going for this morning.  It didn’t quite taste like brownie batter…but they did taste pretty darn good!

 

I then taught my usual Tuesday morning spin class, and got ready super fast afterward so that I could head to Starbucks and publish this post!

I decided to treat myself with a tall Cafe Misto with a side of banana bread sample.  The misto was a great decision, the banana bread was good…but mine is better 😉

This was my first time trying a Cafe Misto, and I am so glad that I did.  They are a great swap for a latte because they are about $0.50 cheaper and have slightly less calories.  I got mine plain, but you can add a syrup pump if plain is too boring for you.

 

Now, I’m off to work!

Have a great day!!

 

P.S.  Thank you so much for the kind comments and support from yesterday’s post.  It means more to me than you know!!
