Tony and I have been talking about the new season of LOST a lot lately, and the conversations are eerily similar to the late-night talks we’d have when I was several months pregnant and anxious about becoming a mother. “What do you think it’s going to be like?”
“What if I don’t like it?”
“I hope it doesn’t ruin everything.”
Of course, I don’t remember Tony ever saying “Do you think they’ll bring Charlie back from the dead?” when I was pregnant. Anyway, we’re really excited and I think a lot of you are too which is why I made you a present. They’re LOST cupcake toppers you can make yourself! I got an awesome suggestion via Twitter user anniemaim (thanks Holly!) to stick these in some confusing cupcakes, so here goes. These are cornbread muffins with pesto cream cheese and a side of confusion.
First, make your favorite cornbread recipe in muffin-form. Then, mix together about 1/2 cup softened cream cheese and 1/4 cup pesto. Pesto is really easy to make, but even easier to buy at Trader Joe’s. To make things confusing, and also to get a little pissed off (as I often do watching LOST) stick something that doesn’t make any sense into the muffin batter before baking. I recommend a jelly bean.
Top them with your LOST cupcake toppersand off you go – straight into another frustrating, confusing, infuriating, wonderful season of LOST!
