Whew!

Today was a day we've been planning for about a year- It was the 90th Birthday Celebration for Mr. Iyengar put on by the Iyengar Yoga Association of MN.  Some people (Mike) might think it's a little weird to have a birthday celebration for someone who's not even in the same country as you, but it was a really fun event!  We had an asana class that was taught by Mr. Iyengar via a tape recording from years ago.  The we did a sutra recitation and shared a great meal together.  Common Roots whipped up some great Indian food made with local and organic ingredients- including some dairy free chai tea!  My contribution was cupcakes (bet you couldn't have guessed that one...).  Here they are looking all happy in the sunshine after being dipped in chocolate.


These are chai latte cupcakes from Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World with ganache on top. They seemed pretty well received, although I think they weren't a personal best.  I actually think the gluten-free ones turned out the best!

It's quite the relief that this event turned out so well- I feel like either celebrating or sleeping.  I'm not sure which.

And seriously, ganache is the perfect disguise for less-than-perfect cupcakes. It makes everything beautiful!
