We've had some cold weather over the last two weeks, and it's hit South Florida farms hard. Our house is by the coast, so the temps don't get as cold as they do inland. Even still, some cucumber seedlings I had going didn't make it. So like last week, this one was a little sparse. Still, gives time to catch up and finish off any leftovers.

- "Slimer" Cupcakes (Black Sapote Muffins with Avocado Frosting)
Friday rolls around and we're having a dinner party. And I didn't feel like making dessert, on top of everything else I was doing. And the canistels that were supposed to be dessert weren't ripe yet. But I did have a very ripe Monroe Avocado. And an idea. Alton Brown had an episode where he was using avocados to make ice cream and various other sweet things. So I made this icing.
All I can say is don't leave the lemon extract out, it's deliciously lemony but that's about it flavor-wise.
Oh, and it is bright green and has the consitency of snot.
So it was immediately dubbed "Slimer" icing and thus, Slimer Cupcakes. I garnished them with some chopped nuts, just out of a sense of decency. The verdict: they were super delicious, just not the most attractive baked good I've ever produced. Still, any kid would love the snot icing!
