Dwight: Mr. Peanut is not classy. He is a regular peanut who happens to have a cane, monocle and a top hat.
Michael: That's what makes him classy.

This is called playing with fire. I am back on my peanut butter craving, which means stealth operations so the kids won't know.

Most kids loved peanut butter and jelly but for me, I like peanut butter and honey. I'm sure it has something to do with my incurable sweet tooth, but there is something really delicious about the nutty and the gooey sweet that goes so well together.

I was going through the great Martha Stewart's Cupcake book. Why? I have to tell you - I'm throwing ANOTHER SHOWER! So I was looking for some inspiration and saw a cute little bee/Honey cupcake. Sounded great. Er. I have to say. I wasn't pleased with them so I altered the recipe to punch it up. In any case, the topping I thought would be best was a peanut butter/honey combo. So I made up some frosting and tadahh, yumminess. The crumbled peanut butter cookies on top didn't hurt either.

Since my kids can't try it, I guess I'll just have to eat them all by myself. Too, too bad.

Yummy Jenn, I used to eat peanut butter and honey sandwhiches growing up. I can always help you polish off what's left of these.

Damn it. I came here hungry again! And peanut butter is one of my weaknesses.

@lilsprinkles The difference between cake flour and AP is protein count. I'm sure there is a wiki on it somewhere or something, but in the end, cake flour gives a more tender soft cake. I wouldn't advise using one for the other, although substitutions are possible if you run out of something...
