the inspired!

here, i'd like to start featuring some of my friends and blog followers who are inspired by the blog to do a little bit of their own baking! so if you try out a recipe from here, or are inspired by a fun ingredient or flavor combo, send me a picture and i'll post it up :)

meg's lemon and rosemary olive oil cake (30 january 2012)
meg made this cake the day after i posted it - insanity. she likes her icing a little runny too - who knew. afterwards, she said her house smelled like a "bakery / bath and body shop." not a bad thing! 

trinh's french vanilla cupcakes with mango cream cheese frosting! (2 july 2011)
trinh (affectionately called t.t.doan) surprised me with an FB post where she showed off these pretty cupcakes she made for her nephew's birthday. she was inspired by these bad babies! love the hipster mobile pics!

priyanka's choco-chili with guac frosting! (22 april 2011)
an awesome and very adored friend of mine, amit, has an equally awesome other half, priyanka. she's been following the blog and took a stab at the mexican-inspired cupcakes i posted a little while ago. she said they were a hit with her dinner party guests! thanks for the support, priyanka! 

eric's strawberry "super star" cupcakes (30 march 2011)
eric is a friend and classmate who asked me one day what i thought the best box cupcake recipe was. i suggested no matter what mix he used, he oughta add in a packet of dry instant pudding mix - he refers to this as decision as "clutch". he got all domestic on the cakes too with some mad decorating skills! he sent me this picture which prompted me to create this page - thanks homie :)
