My latest creative endeavor: Black-and-gold Hawkeye cupcakes.
Today was Homecoming here at the University of Iowa. Yesterday, we had a little advance celebration, and I brought devil's food cupcake with vanilla frosting, colored gold. I dug out my cake decorating tools to frost the cupcakes -- using a giant star tip is fast, relatively non-messy, and looks much more impressive than it really should!
Unfortunately, the Hawkeyes lost to Northwestern. I celebrated by working this afternoon, although since this was the first time I worked a weekend (worked as in covering a public service desk) since I moved here, it was okay. In San Antonio I worked a weekend day every couple months.
