This is kind of LJ-ish, but it's slow.
N showed me a picture yesterday, when I was in the middle of making cookie dough truffles. New Year's Eve Ball Drop Cupcakes (http://confessionsofacookbookqueen.blogspot.com/2010/12/new-years-eve-ball-drop-cupcakes.html)
I was already making cupcakes for our friends' party tonight, but was struck by inspiration - what if I used the truffles for the ball! It didn't work. N goes, "what would Duff do?" Apparently, he was joking. I saw it as a challenge to find a way to make it work. And I think I did. Unfortunately, they won't fit in my cupcake carrier so I have to assemble them when we get there. I'll post a picture tomorrow. So far, they might just turn out awesome. But I'm still shaking my head at DH for not realizing he issued a challenge with that question.
