pacman cupcakesI’m pretty excited about these. Late night cupcakes while Adam is mid-marathon. Actually, he’s more than halfway through.

The frosting is the vanilla flavor I made for the book club cake, the chocolate used for eyes is store bought.The cake recipe is the Dark Chocolate Sheet Cake recipe from America’s Test Kitchen Family Baking Book.

Adam’s fundraising is going really well! He’s already beat his original goal of $250; he moved it up to $500 and is currently at $465. But he still needs slots filled for his 24 hours of gaming.
