The students from my department put on a talent show this week, and as my talent, I entered six dozen baked goods for everyone to taste. Not really a performance talent, but no one in the audience was complaining!

So the month of March just slipped by, didn't it? Between school, life, and lab, I did manage to find plenty of time to bake, but unfortunately never got around to documenting it into this blog. It's a shame because I really wanted to show off the MIT beaver cake pops I made for recruitment weekend, the ginger apple pear pie I made for Pi Day, and the Irish Car Bomb cupcakes I made for St. Patrick's Day, but it didn't make sense to post them after the relevant holiday was long over.

"What's the difference between a cupcake and a muffin?"
That was the question we mused over as we munched on these little pastries. The general consensus was that cupcakes are sweeter than muffins. Also, that cupcakes were more cake-like and muffins were more bread-like (and could be used for savory flavors as well). These muffins though, were quite sweet as they were pretty thoroughly dunked in cinnamon sugar and filled with Nutella.
