Inspiration Finds You

Serenity_Cupcakes

Sometimes inspiration is  thrust upon you. I recently attended a “Geek Girl Extravaganza” and, as had been the recent norm, I was asked to bring a dessert. Now how could I let pass an opportunity to try out a new recipe idea and support one of my favorite shows of all time? A show that needs all the support it can get since it was cut down in its prime? Well I just couldn’t let that happen.

Enter Serenity Cupcakes stage left. These delicious little delights were chocolate cupcakes filled with a strawberry champaign cream cheese custard, topped with a strawberry champaign buttercream, colored in true Firefly colors thanks to edible spray paint, and topped with sinfully delicious chocolate-covered strawberries. Not sure how many of you out there are familiar with the show, but strawberries were a rare delicacy and personal favorite of the character Kaylee on the show. As an added touch, we stenciled on the Chinese character for Serenity, just like on the ship. Sure enough they were a hit.

So this lesson: never miss an opportunity to try something new. And why not aim for over-the-top, you might be surprised by what you come up with.
