Happy Birthday!

Today is my birthday!

To celebrate I went on a Segway tour of downtown San Diego. I had a blast!

I did my tour with We Love Tourists. I got a smokin' deal with a groupon. Even if you have to pay full price - it is totally worth it. The Segway tour is a fantastic way to see our beautiful city!!

Awesome Icing

I made the most amazing chocolate cupcakes today. I think the following icing is what made them!

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 80 oz (227g) cream cheese
  • 1 stick (113g) unsalted butter, firm but not cold
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 3/4 cups (375g) icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Use the flat beater, use the electric mixer to beat the cream cheese, butter, salt and cinnamon.
Use med-low speed and beat until smooth and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes.
reduce the speed to low, gradually add the icing sugar and beat until incorporated.
Add the vanilla. Stop once the vanilla is incorporated.
It should be creamy and dense like ice cream.
Add milk, 1tsp at a time, if frosting does not have a spreadable consistency.
