Out of Your Head and Snickerdoodle Cupcakes

Hey there all you jazz/baking fans,

After recently arriving back in NYC from a month touring in Europe, I decided to get back into my baking spree Sunday night.  The occasion?  Adam Hopkins’ wonderful new improv series, Out of Your Head.

The idea for Out of Your Head  is to get jazz/improv musicians together in random/new/different combinations, set them loose on stage, and see what happens.  Adam’s series already had a well-established  home in Baltimore before he recently relocated here in Brooklyn.  There’s been a fantastic response here already in a short few months.  The series happens every other sunday at Freddy’s Bar in the south end of Park Slope.

I participated in the second set this past Sunday and thought I’d celebrate by making a quick couple dozen of some of my favorite cupcakes – Snickerdoodle with Cinnamon Buttercream frosting!


Both sets were fantastic.

Set I:

Jonah Parzen-Johnson-reeds
Kenny Warren-trumpet
Ryan Mackstaller-guitar
Noah Garabedian-bass
Devin Drobka-drums

Set II:

Jake Henry-trumpet
Danny Gouker-trumpet
Dave Miller-guitar
Matt Rousseau-drums
