Sometimes, I wake up thinking how great it would be to wake up as Martha Stewart.
Then I remember that I don't want to go to jail, so I just go browse her website and live the good part of Martha's life.
By baking her marvelous creations, like these amazing Brown-Sugar Pound Cupcakes. I don't care what anyone says, Martha is a homemaking genius, and if you don't believe me, you should make these cupcakes.
I completely forgot I hadn't posted these, but I made them for a Halloween party and they were a major hit. The cupcakes were super moist and dense, and I added an airy, fluffy chocolate almond buttercream frosting that was to die for. The hint of brown sugar in the pound cakes really set the whole cupcake off. These are so awesome... try them.
