What are you craving?(NOT PREGNANT)

I have been watching cupcake wars on Amazon Prime. Now I want a cupcake really, really badly except I don't do so well making cake from scratch. Even with all the right ingredients my cake winds up heavy and dense. Not to mention I really shouldn't have one anyway. I am trying to lose some weight.

I might make one anyways. I can always feed the extra to the kids for breakfast right?

Coca cola. I'm totally addicted and haven't had any in ages. Sigh, I'll have to settle for red wine.

Oh, and for cupcakes I use this recipe: http://m.allrecipes.com/recipe/17481/simple-white-cake

I'm pretty lame at cooking, but it's simple and yummy. Nothing fancy though.

I wonder how it would work with almond milk. My son cannot have dairy. I do have coconut cream on hand though. I just might try that with the coconut cream. See how it turns out.

When I'm craving baked goods I usually make a mug cake. No one has to know.

I usually crave savory things though, like spinach sautéed with pecans and feta cheese.

Thank you. I made the cake. Lightest one I have ever made. I used my old cake flour that I have had since forever. I subbed buttermilk for the milk since my son has a better time digesting that. So far no issues.

I put Solo apricot in the center of the cake and topped it with a cream cheese frosting with the remaining apricot filling mixed in.

I'm gonna have to give that a shot. It looks really cool.

Glad to hear it worked. Now I really want cupcakes.

I'm ALWAYS craving cupcakes. Always. It got so bad last night I bought a box of cupcakes and made just two. I knew more than that would be dangerous.
