Muffin Cakes

OK, I just re-read my last quirky things post and realized that they are very lame. So to make it up to you (I'm sure y'all are just all sitting around waiting for me to post an odd story about myself!) I will finally get around to telling you the great Muffin Cake story. I have not cleared this with bestie but we tell this story to everyone so I am assuming she is OK with y'all reading it too.

Bestie and I were roomies in college. We lived in an adorable apartment off campus. We watched Dawson's Creek together (Pacey...swoon!), cooked together, shopped together, tailgated together, exercised together (to the fabulously entertaining Elle McPherson) and threw dinner parties together. That's right, we threw dinner parties in college. We did throw a keg party once. But we decided we were much better at brunches and dinner parties.

One of our favorite late night study treats was making muffins. The bag of muffin mix from the baking aisles where you just add water and stir. We were having a very studious discussion one night about the wonders of mini muffins. I mean, they really are the perfect little nibble. And then one of us said something like, "why don't they make other foods in muffin pans, too?" And another said, "like cake!!" "OMG, we should invent Muffin Cakes! People would love them. They would be like muffins, but cake!" I have no idea how much time passed before we looked at each other and both exclaimed "cupcakes!" and exploded in laughter at our utter stupidity. We were seriously going on and on about how brilliant we were to invent these muffin cakes. Holy Blonde Moment!! And she's not even blonde.

I swear we are not total airheads. It was late and we were (and still are) silly and well.... It was just a blonde moment. It was about 8 years ago and we are still laughing about it. Silly, silly us! We really did think it was a brilliant idea for a while though!

Well I still think it was a beyond brilliant idea (just a little late in the game). Hehehehe... I'm wondering if anyone finds this as hilarious as we do? Because I'm like cracking up at my desk by myself here.

That story is too cute! I have had many of moments like the "cupcakes!" lightbulb! But they make for the best stories...and memories.

I know- I have a feeling this story is not nearly as hilarious to anyone else as it is to us. We were just so proud of ourselves for our brilliant idea!! Tehetehe!

My roommates and I once "invented" jello shots, using wine.We served them to friends as dessert. We thought we were so smart!

Haha, I'm sure I've had many a moment like that. Sometimes things seem different when you're looking at them in a different way...haha.
