The road to hell is paved with good intention...I recently got an order for cupcakes.If anyone remembers…cupcakes have literally kicked my butt lately.I haven’t had good luck with them at all!In fact – I recently burned over 6 dozen while trying to get ready for a work meeting.The order I received was simple.Chocolate cupcakes with a girlie design.Because they were for a work friend – I decided to cover my bases (just to be safe)I picked up 12 chocolate cupcakes from the grocery store (in case I burned another 6 dozen) and then went home to make cupcakes with my youngest punk. I let her do all the adding and mixing and we used some very girlie foil lined cupcake cups that I picked up on the way home.I have to say – weather it was the plantes aligning – or the mad baking skills of a 9 year old…or maybe the divinity of the foil cups…they turned out awesome!!!And so – I set off to decorate MY 12 fresh baked cupcakes and let kiddo decorate the 12 store bought cupcakes.(Actually – in hind sight…we baked 24 so I think my punk got to decorate 24 while I decorated 12! Lol)
Anyway – we were up until midnight and we both had a ball. J
My fave by far is the 1 boy-ish cupcake reserved for Jonah.(I found out after the fact that Johan does not like frosting! Lol)
I also got to make some super cute marshmallow flowers!! I took mini's and cut them diagonally (from corner to corner) to make each pettle. Dipped it in coarse sugar (for sparkle) and put a pearl in the center with a glob of frosting. They were much cuter in person cuz the pic doesn't show the sparklee bits. :)
So that's it for the cupcakes...oh - and I was reeeely glad that they turned out cuz the grocery store cupcakes were crazy dry!! :( And because my element finally went in my stove (and hubby picked up a new one today) I'm hoping ot make more cupcakes very soon! :)
