The agony of making a twitter lists how-to video.

I spent the morning looking for a microphone.  Mine is getting old.  I found great reviews to Blue Microphone Snowball Mic.  I brought it home and alas, it was awful.  I found out it was an old verison of the now popular mic.  So now I gotta drive back and return it.  Sorely disappointed.  I'm leaving you with this video, which is recorded with the mic.  I did some adobe premier magic to make it sound like it does.

I'm not sure if I adjusted the speakers just right or if they are actually a good sound, so please, let me know what you think of the sound.

The Snowflake Cupcake - for January

My daughter really enjoys cupcake decorating and I got a calendar with cupcake pictures.  Although the pictures have neither instructions nor references, we decided to try to duplicate them using our imagination.  Last month was a cupcake with a snowflake.  (I called it a star in the video.)
I thought I’d give you a quick synopsis of the how we made it.  
We used chocolate frosting to help the star (I mean snowflake) stand out.
For the snowflake: White chocolate Sparkling sugar
