scattered winds blow me cross the ocean,
we all know i'm a cupcake whore. i'm also trying to work off these 5lbs from vacation/NOT gain any more.
so i tried this experiment. linda linked me to this - 2 point cupcakes, in which a can of diet soda is substituted for eggs and oil. she told me to try it because she needed a guinea pig. since i had a can of diet 7 up that i refused to drink (that stuff is quite gross), so i figured why not.
the verdict? the texture is indeed lighter, and stickier. you can taste a hint of the 7 up. they also seem to be really fragile. also, you should fill the cups more than regular cupcakes because they doesn't inflate as well. it's definitely not the same as normal cupcakes, but they will suffice for now.
mission accomplished - cupcake craving taken satisfied.
in other news, this was awesome:
woooooot. check out my boyfriend michael phelps in there, too ;)
added these babies to my etsy shop the other day:
the top ones are flowers made out of layered vintage book pages. the edges are distressed, and each layer is held together with a foam dot for added dimension. the bottom ones are layered circles made of corrugated cardboard, crumpled notebook paper, and distressed vintage book pages - lots of texture in one single embellishment. fun stuff :)
i've also been working on some other stuff, which i'll start loading throught out the week!
have a good one :)
