48 cupcakes

Last night, as you may recall, I embarked upon an epic and ambitious journey during which I successfully baked four kinds of cupcakes.

Along the way, I learned a lot about myself and my oven. I learned about how I should've bought more confectioner's sugar when I had the chance and how I shouldn't have squeezed my sifter so enthusiastically. I learned patience, ran up the electric bill, and figured out how to jury-rig a sifter with a rubber band. Above all, I learned that it is possible for one woman to bake forty-eight vegan cupcakes in one evening and come out the other side a better person, but that it is unlikely that she could bake sixty, even if she had enough baking cups to begin with.

I vote for pistachio rosewater cupcakes. Very Mediterranean and probably very good. Please mail one to me.

Too late. They were really good and now they're really gone. Have you had rosewater in anything? It took me some getting used to. Raphael loved them right off that bat, though.
