Happy Darwin Day.

Here’s the first batch of Darwin day cupcakes we made (well, Jessica did all of the work on these). These are Earl Grey & Murcott Orange cupcakes as seen on Vanilla Garlic. We were fortunate enough to track down Murcott Oranges (a.k.a. honey tangerines) but I would bet that in a pinch any tangor would do, you might even be able to get away with some other mandarin hybrid.

Um, you might have noticed that there are some letters missing…I got hungry. Just kidding I ruined them when I packed them up, chalk it up to “survival of the fittest?

You’ll no doubt recognize the decoration on the lower left, but who can identify the one on the right?  It stumped the geology faculty, though granted it’s not a great likeness…

Happy Darwin Day!

    Looks pretty good to me. It’s the J-shape of Isabela with Fernandina nestled within it that gives it away.

    The left one is a cladogram right?
    Is the right one the Galapagos islands?!
    If so, i own.
