I've always wanted to be 30...figured I'd know "stuff" by now....We apparently had an unusual year of store-bought birthday goodies. I'd been eyeballing a flan-topped chocolate cake at our local Portuguese bakery. My mom used to make flan when I was very young, and I've always loved it. (Thank you Eliza, for the lime flan you made for my birthday in college.) It was great - the flan caramel oozed down into the chocolate cake below, drenching it in sweetness. Crazy!
I had asked one of my sisters for pastry bags and tips for decorating cupcakes. I was always bummed by how blase mine looked. These are my first attempt; not too bad!
