As I’m moving out of my university accommodation next week I’ve been busy trying to use up all of my ingredients and eating all my food to avoid the horror that is throwing food away. As such the amounts of butter and sugar in these cupcakes is no joke. I have a feeling I may well end up putting back on all the weight I lost whilst living on my own at uni all in one week.
No one recipe really, normal cupcake mix with vanilla extract (a gift) and chocolate chips (also a gift) and then chocolate buttercream on top. Beautiful but deadly. A lot of fun though and this time I’m 99% sure it won’t kill you. And if it does it’s because of the ensuing diabetes / heart attack and not uncookedness.

In the style of a vintage cookbook or magazine or poster. Thoughts? Photo is not mine.

Here is a listenable Grooveshark version of my near perfect playlist, The Café. 28 songs perfect for listening to with a cup of coffee, on a quiet Sunday morning or Saturday afternoon, basking in sunlight, with a beautiful window view in front of you. If you have none of these, then don’t worry, this tracklist will transport you there.
Jazzy, smooth, chilled, relaxed, light-hearted and with a tentative sense of time, starting from morning to evening. Perhaps a slight story-telling element, thinking of someone spending the day at a café.
Best listened to WITHOUT shuffle, as I put a LOT of effort into the order of these songs and how they move into one another… Still not perfect, but that’s okay. All good songs in any case, though I doubt any of you would like all of them, at least not on first listen. If possible, listen in full rather than starting and stopping, it interrupts the flow. Maybe put it on in the background while you’re Internet surfing or doing chores or something? Or just sitting to with a cup of coffee~
Tracklist and graphics to come~
I recently crafted a lifetime-achievement-worthy playlist based loosely around a theme of “The Café”, i.e. songs perfect for listening to with a cup of coffee, on a quiet Sunday morning or Saturday afternoon, basking in sunlight, with a beautiful window view in front of you. Jazzy, smooth, chilled, relaxed, light-hearted and with a tentative sense of time, starting from morning to evening. Perhaps a slight story-telling element, thinking of someone spending the day at a café.
In any case, a brief project, but I’ve decided to do accompanying graphics / posters to conceptualize it and make something of a brand out of this beautiful tracklist. Forgive me for I didn’t source images too carefully and forgot to take notes of credits, so if you would like me to delete or credit them please say. As such, let’s begin with a “teaser” picture if you will… How about the cover for this tentative compilation album?
