221B Baking Street

Framed some more fanart for my place. justaholmesboy in the kitchen and letalkingmime in the living room.

This month’s Lootcrate: Heroes! Shoe Wings, glow in the dark TMNT, Glow in the dark Groot, magazine, air freshener, button and magnet, and TMNT sunglasses. Oh, and there are codes for access to three video games too (Doctor Who Legacy, Defense Grid: The Awakening, and Gauntlet), which I will be downloading shortly. 

Next month’s theme is GALACTIC. Which I am very excited about as we are guaranteed stuff from Star Trek, Star Wars and FIREFLY. 

I decorated my coffee table and there’s quite a lot of johnnybooboo in it.

Be there or be square! I’m planning on getting a dealer’s table again and I hope to see EVERYONE there. :)

I’ll probably be staying out near the airport because the rooms are cheaper and come with free wifi, breakfast and parking (And I have a car to make the commute). I’m just waiting to see if my carful of guests wants to come down Thursday night or Friday morning before booking rooms. 

Strawberries and Cream Cupcakes!
So I made some strawberry pies this weekend for a potluck and then had a ton of leftover strawberries and decided (of course) to turn them in to cupcakes, just in case the pies didn’t go far enough. Because I was making about 4 things at once I wanted them simple as possible, so I used a cake mix. 
Essentially, I just pureed strawberries and a tablespoon or two of water (just to make the blending easier) and then added the puree to a white cake mix instead of water. (For the mix I used it was 1 1/3 cups) It turns the cake a lovely pink color and he lightness of the white cake lets the strawberry flavor really come through. It turned out incredibly well, and I think I’m going to use it with other fruits in the future. 
For the frosting I used the stabilized strawberry whipped cream from here, which made for a very light refreshing cake.

221B Baking Street turned 2 today!
I had no idea! Thanks Tumblr! It seems very appropriate that there’s a cupcake. I’ve got new cupcake pictures/recipes to post today.

High tea at Butter in Vancouver.
So much food! Five different sandwiches, a quiche, two scones, and six desserts. I’m never eating again. It was so good and the tea was buttercream frosting flavored!

whatever happened to teabeforewar anyways?

Health issues.  Long story short, getting iron infusions now, and getting my colon out next month.  Going to try to be around more now since I feel like an actual human being again. :)

Tea, I’m really sorry to hear about your health issues, but I’m so happy to hear from you. I think about you all the time! Do what you need to recover, but don’t be a stranger. We love you!
