A wise lady once said, “When you look at a cupcake, you’ve got to smile.”
And every time I open my fridge, ‘smiling’ is the most polite version of what is smeared on my face!
You see those gorgeous things sitting on the counters, jumping out of magazines, staring at you out of the professionally clicked photographs on other food blogs, and you can’t help but hate yourself a little bit for not having one in your hand. And the worst of the lot are, the mini cupcakes which inhibit Candies. Little rascals, all of them.
So after donning the hat of improvisation, I decided to bake a few cupcakes myself. Vanilla cupcakes are swell, and the butter cream frosting is heavenly. Thankfully, I had some coloring left over from the cutout cookies (“Raspberry Red” to be precise), so i could end up with a very pink set of cupcakes 😛
Oh, and the frosting! Swirling the frosting around with my awesome new nozzle, is just a hoot I tells you.
And, yes, you. A batch shall be on their way to your tummy very soon. You know who you are.
