When the ambient temperature is over 70 degrees, it shall be impossible to have a hot flash.
If this isn't a case of cruel and usual punishment I don't know what is.
So I made cake. Cake fixes everything. With a great show of will power I talked myself out of Triple Fudge Brownies and went with Carrot Cake instead. Even the Cooking Light version. So extra points for having less fat and a vegetable. Also I used my new tiny cupcake trays! Small food is always better. I didn't use the cream cheese frosting, although cream cheese frosting is yummy. I had a batch of creme fraiche so I whipped vanilla into that.
Fun fact; Johnny-Jump-Ups are not only lovely but they also keep plastic wrap from getting into the frosting.
