Today is K's birthday (rhymes with Earth Day, which it also is). I made those lemon-cherry cupcakes I was talking about and they came out pretty darn good. Basic sour cream cake with lots of lemon zest and a bit of cherry extract, topped with a sugar and butter frosting, with lemon juice, lemon zest, and more cherry extract. I probably should have put some red food coloring in the pale yellow icing to make it look as cherry as it tastes. I considered slicing some maraschino cherries and putting them on top, but I was worried it would make them look too much like little breasts.

Happy birthday, K!!!
