No. No I will not.
Making something savory isn't the issue. Armed with Mother Superior's kitchen and the god-send that is the internet, plethora of recipes that it holds, no wrong can be done. It's the telling of what to bring where the wrong lies. If you have a set menu, and all you need for the table is something highly specific, like Lebanese tabbouleh, yes, ask and you shall receive. But tossing out the vaguest "something savory" brings out the Vindictive Baker, who holds a deep seated issue with being told what to do.
The Vindictive Baker, knowing her aunt's pride in decorative cookies, decided a gingerbread cupcake accompanied by brown sugar buttercream would show off wonderfully. And not one of those faux powdered sugar and butter buttercreams. This baking excursion was the real deal, fresh nutmeg, simple syrup, closed star tip, and all.
