soft words in gales
of harsh wind.
‘what did you do before her’, and
‘what will you ever do
we are still running
When you play the game of thrones you win or you die. There is no middle ground.
somewhere below, under miles and miles
of blue water, there is a nest
of all the treasures
i have sacrificed in the lake.
some rose cupcakes i made today
it has rose flavored cake, infused with candied rose petals
then it’s topped with rose & mint flavored meringue icing (it’s actually a light mint green color because there’s some chemical reaction that goes on between the rose tea that i used for flavoring and the base of the egg whites- it’s actually super neat to watch!)
the decorations are a bunch of miniature roses made with homemade mint-flavored marshmallow fondant, dusted with sea green food-grade glitter, and then topped with cinnamon candies and chocolate crunchies.
i even put some of them in these neat rose-bouquet cups that i found in the baking aisle of walmart.
i’m actually quite proud of them. they taste even more delicious than they look- really very delicate and fresh!
they look like they’re ready to be served at a wedding or a garden party.
