By Popular Demand

Two years ago, in a pinch, I dressed up a boxed cake mix with some raspberry flavoring.  People went nuts.  It has been a consistent request.  I like to bake....from scratch.  A coworker is having a milestone birthday this week.  She requested these cupcakes.  I spent the morning making them from scratch.  I fiddled around with some recipes I have.  They are dark chocolate raspberry cupcakes with raspberry cream cheese frosting.  I call them Nipples of Venus...because I am just that saucy.

Here's the result.  Want one?


Go ahead.  You know you do...





Ok, now stop licking your screen.  People will start wondering about your sanity.

Nipples of Venus, huh?

You almost make me wanna eat a cupcake. Or two.

Yeah; definitely two. . .

Even before I read the post and saw what you called these epicurean delights, I homed in on the pics and thought -- "those look just like nipples!" (aroused nipples at that)! I would LOVE to lick the frosting and savor the ripe berries from those babies -- but slowly and sensuously in order to make the enjoyment last! Sounds messy -- but what isn't when it comes to hedonistic pleasure?! ;-P

Raspberry + Chocolate = Pure Delight. Well, maybe add a glass of red wine to that.

Sinful! 2 Hail Marys!

Well they are beautiful and saucy alright! Unfortunately, I would rather be dragged down the street tied to the clown car than eat anything raspberry. Not even for the dark chocolate, which normally I would kill for. But I do not doubt for a second that the raspberry lovers will love them.
You have a great big heart lime, its very nice that you do this for your coworker.

PS. My husband would LOVE these for all their sins. =;]

Could I possibly say something you wouldn't expect? No, so I'm leaving.

I will, however, fondly remember these cupcakes later. Oh, yes. Very fondly.

What just went through my head... well, let's just not even try to explain.

But, chocolate and raspberries ...and cream cheese... YEAH!

Hilary said...

Oh yum.. chocolate and raspberry. And Bijoux's wine, if she'll share. Perfect. And the name is a hoot.

Happy birthday to her!
You are a very good friend, my dear

Good to know you have some Breast Men as commenters.

What cupcakes would you make to satisfy the Leg Men, I wonder? And the Butt Guys? (maybe just two cupcakes next to each other?)

Mmmm, they look great! 'Nuf said! - Dave

Um, Lime. Your naming is giving me palpitations. Can I have some?

Okay, so in my feed, all I could see was down through the very top of that raspberry and I read the first bit as " I dressed up as a boxed cake mix" I though that was going to be a raspberry hat on your head.

I would like two, please. BTW, no one wonders about my sanity any more; they know that train has sailed. But licking the screen would be cause to make my sanitation suspect.
