I currently smell like campfire. I think that, no matter what campfire I am at, the smoke is attracted to me. It doesn’t matter what side of the fire I sit on, or where the wind is coming from, or if it is calm, the smoke always billows around me. It’s really annoying, since I usually come home from fires with stinging eyes and a headache.
After yesterday’s brownie mishap, I was a little nervous about making icing for my cupcakes for today’s campfire. I chose to make a lemonade cupcake with raspberry icing. I decided it would work just as well to put raspberry puree in that icing as strawberry, but for some reason it didn’t. The icing just kept being kind of runny. Apparently if you beat it long enough, it’ll come back together, but I didn’t have time. So I just made a quick raspberry buttercream with icing sugar. Tasted just as good in my opinion.
