there was a cupcake girls marathon on today, which i should have known was a BAD idea to watch but i couldn't resist. my sweet tooth can never deny a cupcake, it's my weakness.
along with poutines and chinese food. so after about 4-5 episodes and while i should have been mopping the floors i decided to make some cupcakes. the trouble is, i've never baked cupcakes from scratch before. i goggled and checked out the first recipe that came up. the reviews were good and i had the ingredients so it was game on! i decided to make a basic chocolate cupcake, with a vanilla buttercream frosting. i had a jar of caramel brulee sprinkles from starbucks that i hadn't used yet, so i topped the cupcakes with that.
i'm telling you folks, suc-friggin'-cess!!!
they are SOOOOO yummy. avery was kind of distracting me during the icing making process so i think the extra whipping of the frosting really helped it out. it came out so creamy and yummy, i love!!
i definitely made them too big though, but is there really a such thing as too big of a cupcake?
now, i am on a mission to get some mini cupcake liners and a tray so i can make some mini ones.
i may have unleashed a dragon here, but it will be just extra motivation to get running!
hope your monday was just as sweet!
