How to make red velvet cupcakes out of Rainbow Dash
(No Rainbow Dashes were harmed in the making of these cupcakes)
This is a guide on how to make cupcakes that I think cupcakes made from pony flesh would look like. That is to say the cake itself is red, and the frosting is light blue, but not from pony hide or guts, from food coloring!! These can be made from scratch, and as such, do not have to be red if you are squeamish, but that is just the convention (though convention is with white frosting, not blue, and red sugar sprinkles, not rainbow, but shh!).
These are really yummy tasting and I recommend you make these, nao! This can also be used for a full on cake once you have the batter and frosting, but these instructions end in cupcakes, so sweet and tasty! This is also written for people who don't know baking very well, like me (even though I am somehow good at it). I also add some humor, so if you don't like that, why are you watching My Little Pony?

In addition to the following ingredients, you'll need a baking sheet and some aluminium foil.
Butter - 50 grams
Sugar - 50 grams
½ an egg, beaten (Substitution: 1 tablespoon cornstarch)
A dash of vanilla essence (One milliliter should be sufficient.)
Cake Flour - 100 grams
Baking Powder - 1/3 Teaspoon (Optional; see recipe)
Cocoa Powder - 2 Teaspoons
Take the butter from the fridge and allow it to reach room temperature. Don't let it melt, just let it become soft enough to cream.
Flatten the butter in a bowl as best you can, then whisk it until fluffy. Don't use a whisk that's too large or the butter will go through the spaces and you'll have to fish it out with a knife. I really do know this one from experience.
Add half of the sugar and beat it into the butter, then add the other half and beat until creamy. It should change consistency as you beat it.

I see when the sky turns black
The clouds start to cry
Then the rain starts to fall
It feels like a burning acid
The tears run down my cheek
They are so salty and sweet
I don't know what is happening
I hope the rain will never end
This rain will wash away my sins
It almost feels like a second skin
The burning feeling
That I have when the sun comes out
Could the storm just appear to the sky
And push away the sun
I have always lived in the rain
For me it's not a game
How to make Muffin-Tin PiesHow to make Muffin-Tin Pies3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
This is a really fun recipe I use for the Holidays and parties! ^-^
The steps listed below will make approximately one/one-and-a-half batches of twelve mini mixed-berry pies. Just use a regular muffin tin, and you can use paper muffin cups if you like, but if you don't I recommend spraying the ENTIRE muffin tin (not just the cups) before putting in the dough to help them come out easier.
The Oven will need to be pre-heated to 350 degrees before the pies can go in the oven.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup shortening (I generally use Crisco)
3/4 cup butter (chilled)
6 Tablespoons of ice water
Making the dough:
1.) Cut up butter into medium-sized cubes and return it to the refrigerator for later use.
2.) Cut up the shortening and drop in chunks into a bowl of ice water.
3.) In a separate bowl (large), combine flour, sugar and salt and then mix well.
3.) After they are chilled, remove the shortening from ice water, the but

"So where do you think the trickster sent Cas?" Dean asked his younger brother Sam. When he received no answer, he looked up. Where Sam had stood beside him moments ago there was only empty space.
"Sammy?" He called, looking back the way they had come and hoping his brother had just fallen behind. Although with legs as long as Sam's he didn't see how that was possible.
"Goddamn Trickster," Dean grumbled when his brother failed to appear. They had come into town on a case a couple of days ago, only to find out that they'd stumbled upon The Trickster. After being put through various ordeals, including a Japanese game show where a wrong answer resulted in a ball to the nuts, Sam had figured out that they needed to play their roles in order to progress. Dean had thanked his lucky stars that his brother had just saved him from a blow to the jewels after enduring the

This one is just awesome. I adore some subtle humor in a book, and it’s a great way to start out if you’re witty enough. This short and amusing opening line tells us a lot about the character in a very short time. His name also gives an indication that he is not from the land of Narnia, but is probably from England, if this book is to be similar to the ones prior to it in the series.

He let himself stumble in, spinning himself languidly around to lean against it and push it shut again. His eyes were glazed over, missing something.

"The victim was most likely a man who was drawn out of the bar that is on the street." Ziva said, returning from flashing a picture of the man to the bartender and a few of the proclaimed frequenters of the bar, "I talked with a few people who said he looked familiar.'
Gibbs nodded as Tony and McGee got to work going through the crime scene.
"The body has been picked up by Ducky and Jimmy, and the blood has been cleaned and a sample taken to Abby, boss." Tony said after they were done with everything. Or so he thought.
"Boss!" McGee yelled from a place near a dumpster on the far wall of the alleyway, "I found some more blood, and signs of a struggle!"
Gibbs, Tony, and Ziva were there in a flash. The silver-haired leader knelt down, his keen eyes sweeping over the area.
It was apparent there had been a small scuffle there, noted by the garbage, gravel, and dirt

NightmaresThere is an unrelenting plague upon my fragile mind; a fear of the dark and the obscure secrets it conceals. The consuming shadows whisper empty promises, beckoning to my weary consciousness with their malignant tongues. I challenge the coercing temptations of my damnable hallucinations, keeping them at bay with pure inhuman will. Their words are enticing, laced with venomous needles to prick my subconscious thoughts; awaiting the moment that I succumb to their luring poison. With deliberate purpose, they attack my tender psyche and leave behind the toxic sting of their ruthless attacks. I am at the mercy of their double-edged swords; lost within the battle for my suppressed memories, I can no longer sustain my defenses against them.

I've realized that CISPA or the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act will do more harm to American citizens as well has American government than it may suggest. Instead of protecting Americans from cyber-security threats as it has suggested, it would instead force websites that your voters as well as millions of Americans use to hand over their personal information and read their emails causing very serious privacy issues. CISPA has also used extremely vague terms in order for corporations to hunt down internet users and accuse them for copyright infringement without a trial and jury. There as been only a very small speck of oversight being shown in this bill and there have also been major technological supports that were against SOPA and PIPA such as Facebook, Google and Microsoft, believing that they can actually benefit from CISPA's passing, because they think that CISPA isn't half as bad as SOPA. This is a deception. CISPA is a million
