I am in the mood to bake

Last night DH (Dear Husband) and I went to the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at Santana Row.  If you are not familiar with Santana Row, it is a ritzy shopping center.  Some stores include Gucci (my fave), Burburry, Juicy, etc.  The ceremonony was okay, and they had American Idol contestant Thia Maggia perform.  She has an amazing voice and she is a beautiful girl.  After the performance she passed right by us, we were starstruck. 

Anyhow, let me get back on track.  As we were getting ready to leave we passed by Kara's Cupcakes and purchased a pumpkin cupcake.  We didn't get to try it until we got home later that evening.  Well let me tell you...I was disappointed!  I first tried the frosting and it was yummy.  Then I got to the cupcake itself and it was not very good.  The cupcake was dense and was bland.  I know I can make a better cupcake than that, and the challenge was on.

So the plan is to find the perfect cupcake recipe.  There are so many recipes out there.  Should I cheat and make a semi-homemade cupcake (Real Simple Pumpkin Cupcakes) or should I make them from scratch.  Decisions, decisions.  I still have a few days to decide since I'll be making them this Saturday.  DH has to work all day so in addition to getting my Thanksgiving shopping done, and watching Breaking Dawn (Eeek) I will have plenty of time on my hands.

Will keep you all posted...
