Cherry Garcia Cupcakes

So this may sound extremely lame, but every once and a while I wake up in the middle of the night with a great idea for a recipe. This idea happened a while ago, but I'm just now acting on it.

Last time I checked we are in a foreign country. I have a greater appreciation for people living in countries not knowing the native language.

I simply suggested that Matt plug the cords into the wall, and would you believe, it works just like the standard American phone?!? Here is Matt testing, and proving, my hypothesis:

Our awesome graffiti table is the makeshift phone prop for now. But Buddha told me today that the rings are messing with his chi. Funny, same thing happens with me. We should remedy that.

And of course, I must share this perfect photo of Sir Sugar Puff.
