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