or, "Valentine's Day is Nothing to Blog About"
This post is going to be a little bit out of keeping from my usual shtick. You see... the product I created this morning was not amazing. From the Cherry "Five Spice" Cake to the blue cinnamon cream cheese icing, nothing went quite right for me. Was it tasty? Not really. Is it something people will want to duplicate? Nah, gurl.
So why bore you with the play-by-play?
Exactly my conclusion.
I will say that the fortune cookie recipe (and procedure) is one you should definitely try. If you have... a lot of time... an excess of patience... and an obsessive compulsive desire to do the same thing many times in a row until you create five serviceable cookies that are maybe tasty. If that sounds like you, then hop over to Cheeky Kitchen's fortune cookie post. Heck... you'll probably want to check it out anyway... she makes it look easy.
If you're still with me, then I'm going to answer the age old question: How do I eat a cupcake with fortune cookie on top?
Come on, don't pretend like you haven't tossed and turned over this question. So many things to consider...
Anyway... I'm going to do the heavy lifting for you, because... well, I care about you. Here's what you should do:
1. Undress that sucker. Treat her like a lady, but like a lady you'd like better naked.
2. Careful not to disturb the cookie, take a bite of the cupcake. (If it's my cupcake, then take a moment to be disappointed in the lack of cherry-ness to the cake. Note the sad blah-ness of the icing, while you're at it.)
3. Gingerly (yeah... ginger was one of my five spices... It was actually a play on Chinese Five-Spice and not actually the spice called "Five-Spice." The fails just keep coming, don't they?) pluck the fortune cookie from it's icing bed.
4. Break open the cookie and behold thy fortune!
"Conditions are perfect"???
Hopefully I have at least one reader who caught the Flight of the Concords reference. But if you didn't catch it this time, you will next time. Enjoy...

Wait a minute... I've objectified a baked good. I've failed to live up to expectations. I've mentioned feelings. I've quoted a love song (kinda?).
Dammit. This is totally a Valentine's Day post.
