Lemon Frosting & Tort(e)s

For those of you that know me well, you know that I want to open a bakery named
Tort(e)s. Well it just so happens that Saturday night, I swirled my first cupcake in the signature fashion. My favorite Columbia bakery is by far Cupcake, and last Wednesday they were offering a Power Hour of Lemon Cupcakes—free to those that came in within 30 min. Under penalty of firing from a dieting employer, I did not get a lemon cupcake. Instead I waited until the craving could be pacified no longer and a partner in crime was available. Here is the opening credit to Tor(e)s! Drum Roll Please.
