#13 – ZOMG, Sarah, we HAVE to try this!

So, I was searching Flickr for a photo to go with my last posting and when I typed in “101 in 1001” under the Creative Commons-licensed photo search, this was the first hit:

dark and stormy cupcake by cuttlefish.

A friggin’ Dark & Stormy cupcake!!

Apparently Lauren, a.k.a. cuttlefish, had on her 101 in 1001 days list: invent a bitchin’ cupcake recipe.  And this was her creation and she tagged it “101 in 1001” and that is how I find it.  And now I want to eat it.

Some background: Sarah introduced me to the deliciousness that is the Dark & Stormy – a drink made of dark rum, ginger beer and, I believe, lime juice.  She and Dave first tried it on a Carribbean cruise they went on. We tried to make them in Calgary but the ginger beer we got was fierce so we dubbed those the “Dark & Burny.” Undrinkable, they were.  But Sarah and I had some at The Reef one time when she was visiting (which I totally thought I had a photo of but can’t seem to find in my Flickr. *curses self for not tagging Flickr photos properly*). So. Delish.

The recipe for these is here. Seriously, Sar, we must, must make these at the next available opportunity!

Update: So, as Sarah notes in the comments section, the reason I couldn’t find the photos of us in the my Flickr is because she took those photos on her camera!  She sent them to me, so here they are:

  1. ZOMG! Those look so frigging amazing! I guess we could try to bake them in the kitchen at the hotel in Vancouver, but that might be a bit ambitious…

    I kinda want a D&S right now, actually. We found Ginger Beer (sadly, not Diet, but beggars cannot choosers be) at Loblaws/Superstore – it's their in-house brand – and it is pretty good. Combine it with Gosling's Dark Rum and you're good to go.

    As for pictures of us drinking D&Ss at the Reef, I have them. I'll send them to you at gmail as soon as I finish this comment, in case you want to upload them.

  2. Ah! So I'm not crazy! I totally remembered seeing those pics and couldn't find them anywhere in my Flickr! lol!

    I'll update this posting when I receive them!

  3. Also, baking them in the kitchen of your hotel room would probably be a bit too ambituous! But the next time we are at either your place or my place for any reasonable amount of time, we are so making those!
