Playwright Amy Sedaris walks us through her FUN approach to entertaining. She tells about her thriving cupcake business, her imaginary boyfriend, Ricky, and her rabbit, Dusty, who loves her cooking. Her book is I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence.
Amy Sedaris' Cupcakes
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter
1 3/4 cups of sugar
Beat well, then add:
Add 2 large eggs
2 Teaspoons of pure vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/4 cups of milk
Beat well, fill cups, and bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes. You should get 24. I get 18, 'cause I'm doing something wrong.

Whip for a while, color if you want.
