Spontaneous Kitchen Creations #3

Dear Readers,

So these are delicious. I finally got my sh*t together and sent my cover letter, résumé and head shot into a major talent agency in Halifax so to celebrate I made cupcakes. Tasty, tasty cupcakes. These are Spiced Chocolate Orange-Almond Cupcakes with Lemon-Ginger Buttercream Frosting.

I amalgamated 2 recipes from Vegan Cupcakes Take over the World (The Basic Chocolate and the Almond Cupcakes) and added a bit of my own flare with orange extract and some spices. Then I made a half-quantity of the Vegan Fluffy Buttercream Frosting and added lemon extract, ground ginger, ground cloves, allspice and cinnamon. To decorate I added some dried rose petals and silver dragées.
I got one of those fancy display plates with a cover for a whopping $2.99 at my local Salvation Army, tossed a doily on it and now it makes my cupcakes look like dainty posh shmee-shmee delicacies. Yay!
