Yes, I made these cupcakes back in July, for tear-stained consumption after the premiere of the very last Harry Potter movie. No, I haven't posted about them until now - I didn't have time, for some reason or another. But - really - it's more appropriate even now. See, HP and The Deathly Hallows 2 was just released on DVD...and also, these cupcakes totally remind me of autumn. They were truly fantastic! Exceptional, even. I remember thinking the flavors would be perfect for Halloween or Thanksgiving, even though they (gasp!) don't involve pumpkin. Our friends Bethany, Mindy, and Brad were big fans of these cupcakes also, and they don't hand out compliments easily. Or...maybe they do, but I'm just trying extra hard to convince you how wonderful they are. You should make them - even if you've never HEARD of Harry Potter. (Who ARE you??!) You won't be sorry. Also, you should read the books. You won't be sorry. And you should watch the movies. Warning: sometimes you'll be sorry. They definitely got better with each installment.
I definitely wore my owl necklace that my friend Sasha made for me.
And Jeremy accidentally wore his Ooltewah Owls T-shirt; I pretended that it was on purpose.
Brad and Mindy. Yes, we saw the Deathly Hallows in 3D, with Harry Potter glasses.
Yes, they made their own (awesome) shirts. Brad's shirt is the funniest HP shirt I've ever seen!
Bethany and me. Sorry for the totally awful quality of this picture.
The lighting in the movie theater lobby was questionable, at best. Why couldn't they have had some
of those huge umbrella things like wedding photographers have? It's the least they could do.
Let's get back to the sweet stuff. This recipe came straight from amybites.com, who did a marvelous job creating it. I highly recommend that you go to her original post and follow all of her little tips and tricks. I usually have lots of extra notes on a recipe, but she was so thorough that I actually have nothing else to add! It's perfect, as is. =)
