With it being Halloween weekend, it was reason enough to celebrate. The second being that it was also my birthday, my 25th on Halloween to be exact. My quarter-life has come and I celebrate, mourn, and then get over it with a drink with good food and my best friends.
For weeks, Beka has been wanting to make sure this is a great party and pull out all the stops. And pull out all the stops she did. Starting this whole thing off properly meant getting a menu all prepared. That was easy enough, since I jumped right on the Surf N’ Turf ban wagon. Even though I live in Seattle, there’s not always much of an occasion to bust out the crab legs, but turning 25 seemed like an acceptable reason to do so.
The one part we could not get figure out for the life of us, was the choice of cupcakes that would be served. We’re two bakers, this shouldn’t ideally be a difficult decision, but alas for two bakers it is really the most difficult decision in the world. At some point there was talk of pumpkin cupcakes with bourbon cheesecake frosting like I had made for my office Throwdown, but with the clock winding down on the preparation for the event, I had come the conclusion that a box of Devil’s food cake mix and a jar of cream cheese frosting would do just fine. But of course, Beka beat me to it and had already whipped up Spiced Apple Cupcakes with a Brown Sugar Cream Cheese frosting. Oh dear me!! They are amazing. I can’t believe they are still here at my apartment, goodness!
But either way, there were cupcakes, good food, and some of my favorite people all together – what more could a quarter-life crisisee ask for?
