(Reposting from last night because I decided I wanted to split off the fanfic portion into its own post in case I want to link back to it in the future. Sorry if you got this twice! ^_^;;)

Well, I started my new year with a baking goof. I got up early on Saturday and figured I would use up the half bottle of molasses that was left by making a batch of gingerbread cupcakes to bring over to my best friend’s house later that day. I forgot to put in the baking soda and didn’t realize it until they were ready to come out of the oven so they were hard and unappealing. -_-;

I ended up making a second batch of cupcakes from mix instead and brought those over and fortunately everyone seemed to like them. (I add an extra 1/4 cup flour, an extra egg, and substitute milk for the water when I bake from mix, which makes it less sweet and more fluffy.) My friend’s parents and sister were home and her boyfriend and her sister’s friend were visiting so I guess it was good I brought a dozen; they were more than half gone by the time I left! I also met my friend’s new cat, which is about 4 months old, named after Kero from Cardcaptor Sakura, and obsessed with food. XD My friend’s sister also goes to cons so she wanted to see my cosplay pics and we all went out to lunch together except for the parents.

Also finally exchanged Christmas presents with my friend. I got her a flowering tea set, an earring and necklace set, and some chocolate. She gave me a necklace and a digital photo keychain which I’ll have to figure out how to work; she suggested I use it to show off my costume pics!
