Spiced Orange Cappuccino

cappuccino spiced orange | The Cupcake Confession


I have nearly a month of college left before I graduate from College.

3 years!!!!!!!

I didn’t even realize how fast time was passing. But it makes me happy. VERY HAPPY!

It’s finally time to finish a chapter and begin a fresh new one.

Okay, is it just me or are my philosophical thoughts boring you to death?

‘cause I just realized that I yawned for the 17th time in a span of mere 5 minutes!

Oh, btw, how AWESOME were the Oscars!

Since I couldn’t really watch the LIVE telecast, since I’d have had to wake up at 5:30 in the morning {which in all probability was never going to happen because I L.O.V.E. my sleep} and also I had 7:30 lectures in college, I had to watch the repeat telecast later that day.

I loved EVERYTHING about it; especially Ellen’s opening sequence and that SELFIE! OMG the selfie! It’s so start studded with the best in ONE FRAME!

Like every other award show that I watch, my eyes are ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS on JLaw!


She’s absolutely HILARIOUS and while there are a millllllion funny moments that I enjoyed, this one in particular HAD ME IN SPLITS FOR HOURSSSSSSS!!!! This is JLaw getting all ‘Tarzan’ on Josh Horowitz!



In other news, I made Spiced Orange Cappuccino !!!!!!!!!

I know, I know, you’re probably wondering what a crazy combination this is!


I know it sounds crazy, but, you guys, this thing is MAGIC TIMES INFINITY!

{magic X Infinity}

It’s a delicious orange syrup spiked with the most aromatic spices before the coffee maker works its magic on it!
