There’s no crazy like 8th-grade-with-7-days-of-school-left crazy. These kids are wired. I wish I could share their enthusiasm, but it’s hard to get excited about summer when it never gets above 65 degrees, and summer means thick fog all day and every day. I’m soooo over it.
Fortunately, I have friends in sunnier places, and those friends like to throw dessert potlucks.
Or technically, dessert plus taco dip potlucks. Things like that totally save my sanity.
I agonized over what to make for this little get-together and finally settled on these cupcakes. They are nice and buttery and make the perfect base for a swirl of cinnamon cream cheese frosting.
