Toothpaste cupcakes?

These are NOT the cupcakes I made today. But, let me start at the beginning . . . "My libbib is on the flboor." In other words, the dentist went on a Novocaine shooting spree. The guy before me must have asked for a couple extra shots of the numbing painkiller. And, the dentist, just to play it safe or to have some fun, decided to give me an extra two rounds. I think he was just buying time since he went to work on other patients while I was numbing up.

I guess I shouldn't be too upset. I'd rather him go on a shooting spree than a non-numbing drilling spree. It's just that . . .

I ruined my cupcakes.

I had been looking forward to making chocolate cupcakes with mint frosting all week. The cupcakes came out great. I tasted the frosting as I made it to get just the right amount of mint. But when Pedro had a bite, he said, "It tastes like toothpaste." At my offended expression, he kindly suggested I wait until the numbness wore off before I frosted the rest of the cupcakes. I thought, "Well, he just doesn't like mint as much as I do."


A few hours later, I discovered, to my great dismay, the frosting tasted like sugary toothpaste. I had been so numb, my taste buds couldn't quite communicate to my brain the actual amount of mint extract flavoring the frosting. Oops.

So, the cute, yummy St. Patty's Day mint chocolate cupcakes I envisioned only exist in my mind, and the unfrosted chocolate cupcakes only exist in my belly.
