I am down with some sort of flu and in my boredom, I flipped through the thousand or so pictures I took and saved in my PC. Man, that's a lot. No wonder my PC is bugging. And some are actually pretty nice. Let me just share with you some photos of vanilla cupcakes I've made. It is incredible how a seemingly blank canvas of flavor can inspire imaginative combinations of flavor which kind of makes you realize that vanilla is more complex a flavor than you give it credit for.
