Miscellaneous Love  
Loved the season premiere of Veronica Mars. I loved the miscellaneous pop references. My two favorite were the mention of Magnolia Bakery cupcakes and "frak" a Battlestar Galactica reference. God! Magnolia Bakery has a Wikiapedia listing. Too funny.

God! I love shows with smart young women who are very good at what they do. It is because I was such a wreck when I was that age. I get a vicariously do-over when I watch these shows.

My three favorites are: Kaylee from Firefly, Veronica Mars and my all time favorite is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Thank you Joss for two out of three.

I first heard about Magnolia Bakery cupcakes two years ago September, when Janeane Garofalo was eating them on the air at her now defunct radio show The Majority Report. I ordered the Magnolia Bakery cookbook online and made a batch for my October birthday. Yes, for a year and a half I lived in New York vicariously through Janeane.

It took a some practice, let me tell you!

Basically, I used a small icing knife. First I put a scoop of frosting on the cupcake so that it covers all the way to the side and flattened out on top. Then I put more frosting in the middle of the cupcake. Then I drag the knfe around in a wide circle (while rotating the cupcake in my other hand) that gets smaller in the center.
