The vanilla chai white velvet cupcake recipe from Dr. Gateau uses lots of spices, which reminds me to add spice jars to my list of to-dos. Recipe cards can wait till I go home where I will put away some of my favorite recipes.

The frosting encompassed just as many spices and smelled like winter. I definitely picked a good cupcake recipe for a cold wintery night.
I skimped on frosting for each of the 16 cupcakes I made. I ate one. I was supposed to keep 16 to put in my cupcake carrier. Oh well.
And here are the finished homemade Oreos. So, the filling didn't work out.
