Ingredients You Will Need:
♡ Wilton Fondant in White, Black, Red and Yellow: http://www.amazon.com/Wilton-710-2301…

♡ Cupcake recipe:
♡ 1 and 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
♡ 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
♡ 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
♡ 1/2 teaspoon salt
♡ 1 cup granulated sugar
♡ 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
♡ 2 egg whites
♡ 1/4 cup yogurt (plain or vanilla)
♡ 3/4 cup milk
♡ 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

♡ To Make The Cupcakes:
♡Mix the first five (dry) ingredients in a big bowl then set aside. In a standard mixer, beat melted butter and sugar together until combined. Next add the yogurt, egg whites, milk and vanilla extract until all wet ingredients are incorporated. Finally, combine the dry ingredients with the wet mixture until batter is smooth. Fill 12 cupcake liners and bake in a 350F degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until the center is firm.

♡ Cream Cheese Frosting:
♡ 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
♡ 1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese
♡ 1/8 tsp salt
♡ 1 tsp vanilla
♡ 1 3/4 cups of powdered sugar
♡ To Make The Frosting:
♡ Cool your mixing bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes. Next, attach bowl to the mixer and beat the heavy whipping cream on high until it reaches a stiff peak. Place whipped cream aside. In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese, salt and vanilla on medium until incorporated. Add powdered sugar slowly on low until cream cheese mixture is smooth and creamy. Lastly, fold in the whipped cream with your cream cheese mixture until frosting becomes light and fluffy. Place frosting into a pipping bag with the pipping tip of your choice and frost the top of each cupcake.

Hi guys! Welcome to the DLOD Show! Today we get things going with Dan taking a visit to the Oculus Labs where he gets to try the new Oculus Rift 5.0.

Dan’s being a grumplepuss and he doesn’t want to review a book, so Gabe pulls out two different issues of “Life Plays” by Danny Jimenez. They’re funny, raunchy, kinda stupid, and often horror themed.
To check out “Life PLays”, head over to http://www.blurb.com/user/dannyjay69

Our guest today is game developer E McNeill. “BUT YOU GUYS ALREADY HAD A GAME DEV ON THE SHOW!!!” you say? “Yeah, but this guy develops for the oculus and other VR gaming platforms which is friggin AWESOME,” we reply. His game Darknet is already an Oculus favorite, and he’s hard at work making some awesome new stuff.

As always, thank you guys so much for checking out our little show!!
