This is Larry the Heptapus! He always wanted to be an octopus, but he doesn't have enough legs! I tell him just because he's different doesn't make him bad. He's very special just the way he is.

Tomorrow is the Super Bowl. Football is lame. Cooking is good. My plan is to go to my bosses house tomorrow and use her kitchen to make lemon cupcakes! I will feed said cupcakes to anyone watching lame football. The original Lemon cupcake idea came from watching Paula Dean (lemon blossoms,) but I'm pretty sure mine are slightly different. Whatevs.

Lemon Cupcakes

Recommended Listening: "Warm" by Arms and Sleepers
Recommended Drinkage: Sangria

Yellow Cake Mix (and ingredients required on the box... usually oil, eggs and water)
1 Box lemon instant pudding
Confectioners sugar

For Cupcakes:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix cake mix, eggs, water, oil, and pudding mix together. Add a couple teaspoons of lemon zest to batter and mix in. Fill cupcake pan halfway with batter. Bake 18 to 20 minutes.

Add about 1 tablespoon of lemon juice to 1 cup confectioners sugar and mix. Remember, real icing is lame and tastes nasty. Glaze is so much better! Drizzle it on the cupcakes once they are cooled.
