Overnight at JFK

So, I went this last weekend to San Francisco to meet my boyfriend who went to the West Coast for a conference! It was an express weekend  but it was amazing, guys! We had a lot of fun, we went shopping, we took the cable cars, we went to the fisherman's wharf and all those piers (I like to call them Pière! ahah), we had clam chowder, ramen noodles, thai food, a traditional american brunch,.. oh yeah!
However (a big however!), in the end, when I arrived to New York, 5:30am, my flight back to Richmond was delayed because of the fog... and this was the beginning of a long day! Delay after delay.. all the flights got cancelled and I had no other choice than spend the night at the airport! I took a chair near the plug and I spent almost all the time in my laptop. You can imagine how many hours of sleep I got... :S In the other side of the Atlantic, my boy , who was travelling back to Portugal, was also stucked...but in Munich Airport!

After 24h, I finally caught a flight  back to Richmond..oh my! what a day! Now I need a suuuper recovery because I'm counting down the days for my vacations in Portugal!! I'm flying this saturday :D Preciso de bom tempo, São Pedro!

Gingerbread cupcakes

I have a question... can I turn every cake recipe into a cupcake? It makes sense right? They are so cute, fancy and so delicious-looking! Some people say that this cupcake boom is getting to an end, that the cupcakes are not that popular anymore... The good thing about this cake is its versatility, different combinations of cake and frosting, and also the entire decoration. Endless possibilities... that's what makes the cupcake sooo interesting and special.

When I saw this recipe from Joy the Baker, I give it a try and turned the cake into tiny beautiful cupcakes (minimal decoration lol). For the frosting, I add orange zest and cinnamon. 
Orange gingerbread cupcakes? Yes! Winter is almost coming!
