I did indeed make the Guinness cupcakes. They were AMAZING! Of course, I probably didn't need to make 4 dozen of them. Maybe I should have checked to see how many it made before stating in on it. The icing was perfect, and the whole thing was quite rich and satisfying. Now, I just have to find a way to get rid of all of them.
On another note, I have managed to break 3 cameras this year, so I was quite digicam-less. I gave in and bought another camera, but I couldn't get the one I wanted in town, so I will have to wait until I receive it from Amazon. In the meantime, I went up to Wal-Mart and picked up a super-cheap ($20) digicam, just so that I can at least get some images of my baking up, while I'm so inspired. The quality will be awful for a while, but I figured that bad pictures are better than none. So, I apologize.
