cupcake hero brought me back

Hello! Wow – it has been a long 4 months since my last post. For those who don’t know my baby boy was born naturally at home Feb 9 with no complications. It was an amazing birth, and life is going along here with lots of love and little sleep! It is hard to adjust to someone else’s needs and wants coming first, but I have managed to squeeze in a few moments to think about nutrition, scope out new products, and of course, make cupcakes – ha! These are all things I will need to do for my little guy anyway once he gets those chompers.
There is a blog called quirky cupcake that has a cupcake contest every month based on a theme ingredient – May’s ingredient was cocoa powder. I absolutely had to participate, seeing as I love to make chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting using organic fairtrade cocoa powder (my brand of choice right now is cocoa camino). To make it even more about the cocoa, I topped them with natural chocolate sprinkles and shasha bread company cocoa snap hearts, which are both also made with cocoa powder. I call these cupcakes – cocoa loco!
