Today is the start of the US Open in the heart of the Big Apple. And as with the other Grand Slams, I’ve concocted a special cupcake to celebrate the spirit and energy of this iconic tournament. Such an American tournament calls for an equally patriotic cupcake, and nothing says “America” more than apple pie and Cracker Jacks. These two classic American flavors combine to create a spectacularly scrumptious caramel apple pie cupcake.
A warm summer’s night swathed in an inky indigo sky dotted with countless flickering stars–what could be more picturesque? How about a starry sky streaked with hundreds and thousands of shooting stars, each one just waiting to be wished upon? Well this week is the perfect opportunity to lounge under the stars and enjoy one of the universe’s most breathtaking spectacles: the Perseid meteor shower. So grab a blanket and a thermos of hot chocolate and get ready to marvel at the mysteries and beauty of the universe.
