I am a huge fan of birthdays, and my favorite birthday tradition is the birthday boy or girl choosing the menu on his/her special day. For dinner tonight, we reveled in the noodle-y goodness of vegetable lo mein and followed it up with Markus's favorite cupcakes: ricotta almond cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I discovered this recipe months ago on chockylit's cupcake blog, and we are huge fans! The only adaptation I make is omitting the berries. We tried that the first time and were unhappy with the soggy mess in the middle. We make up for it by serving them with homemade raspberry sorbet. Delicious!
Happy Birthday, Markus! We love you!
