Insanely long recipe title? Maybe. Insanely long book series? Maybe. INSANELY GOOD? YES. (Both the cupcakes and A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones.)
-Vanilla cake mix (holla, I am lazy)
-Cinnamon + nutmeg + Trader Joe's chai tea mix powder (afterthought...turned out to be a good one)
-Blackberries ("horse hearts")
-Red sprinkles (for fire!)
-"jewel" almonds from the For The Love Of Chocolate shop in Carytown (RVA)
Stick the blackberries in the middle pre-baking. These are your fruity horse-hearts. ;)
My fantastic purple-gold-green mottled almonds aka dragon eggs
Torture at least one pet with frosting (give pet more pet-appropriate treat after picture-taking)
Behold, your tester. Om nom to taste. Arrange on Game of Thrones-appropriate dinnerware if possible.
Notice your tasty horse-heart center.
Puppies really, really were insistent.
