Here’s how you know good things are about to happen:

Here’s a random fact: I was an English literature major in undergrad. True story.
For better or worse (mostly the latter), this gives me the inane confidence to write food-themed life stories and elaborate food analogies to people.

I was at my WOA professor’s home last week and her husband suggested I make a themed blog post on a baked good that somehow tracks a legal case. I tried to think of a Pennoyer-themed dessert, but that’s beyond my pay grade (which is zero).

Oh right. Gabe’s birthday! Here’s my food analogy/bday blog post for my vegetable-hating, Star Wars-loving, Games-of-Thrones-watching, Berkeley-pedestrians-ranting, k-pop-listening, facebook/reddit-stalking, slightly offensive, always inappropriate but-altogether-lovable-second-favorite-Argentinian, Gooby!

These cupcakes are like you in the following ways:
1. When you first meet this cupcake, you’re like, oh okay, that’s pretty cool. I dig it.

2. Then you go a little deeper and you’re like wait. what. There’s something else going on with this dude/cupcake.

3. Then you’re like OH WHAT?? Ferrero rocher/heart of gold personality? Sweet.

4. Finished off with a crusty bottom. Word.

And now, Gabe’s second favorite kind of porn–FOOD PORN.

Dab tops of cupcakes with melted chocolate to get mini marshmallows to stay. Stick in oven for broil for 1-2 minutesIMG_5265

Toasted!
Stick graham crackers and mini Hersheys into each cupcake.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GOOBY. you’re alright.

I used a box cake mix because I’m laz–err, I mean–Gabe is such a down-to-earth kinda guy, he wouldn’t stand for this fancy-shmancy made-from-scratch crap. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!) Obv, you can use your own chocolate cake recipe and use it for these cupcakes.
