  1. Baking requires you be precise and when I cook it’s a little of this, a dash of that; so I’m a bit put off baking for that reason.
    When highly motivated, I CAN bake, as long as it is not too complicated.

  2. Typically I don’t care for rainbow colored food, (when the body finishes with it…well you get my point) but the rainbow inspired cupcake is fandamntastic! And my feeling is why wait for a dead saint’s birthday to give it a try. I can tell my kiddos i made them to celebrate the end of a long rain storm, to eat while watching The Wizard of Oz, or while we wait to hear who won the latest Powerball jackpot! It’s early and I may be over thinking this! But loved this top ten!

  3. mmm…all look delicious, but #2 caught my attention…would never have thought of doing a Baileys cupcake but sounds good to me …I don’t have any little ones around to worry about… 🙂

  4. Guinness is a popular thing to put in cakes and breads here, so I don’t doubt it’s tasty. I, myself, can’t indulge, but my husband says they are good!

  5. Yummy! For some reason I was instantly reminded of this one episode of ‘Father Ted’ where Mrs Doyle tries to convince Father Ted to have some cake “Go on Father, it has cocaine in it!” 🙂

  6. Thanks! Yeah it was a bit of a let down but normal share next week for sure. Sometimes it is hard to find people willing to make a 10 top. Others like yourself are much more willing.

  7. I would love the Baileys or the mint ones. For being stuck with you this Sunday we did just fine 🙂
