Cupcake anyone?


As gifts to friends I decided to give cupcakes! Who doesn't love cupcakes? I even baked them on National Cupcake Day, but just getting to posting them now. I baked most the day and came out with 4 fab flavors.
*Orange Chocolate Chip with Chocolate buttercream, with white chocolate drizzle
*Carrot with white chocolate cream cheese frosting
*Coconut with Vanilla buttercream & topped with more coconut
*Chocolate with Chocolate buttercream, filled with mint chocolate ganache, topped with crushed candy cane
I baked over 100 cupcakes and loved doing every bit of it. The girls helped frost and sprinkle them too. I hope all recipients enjoyed them as much as I loved baking them!

Fabulous! Are you sharing recipes to those who don't live near you so can't be recipients????

My favorite were the coconut ones, of course. Eric loved the carrot cake ones. You're the best baker I know!

I will agree they were fab. Whenever you are in the mood for baking we are in the mood for receiving! ;) You are the best at making sweets!

Amazing! What a great idea to celebrate cupcake day. Cupcakes are the best--the only way to improve on cake. I love you pics on your last post of Makenna. What a beautiful girl!

I didn't realize that you were so into baking! Guess I have a lot to learn. You make them look so professional. You should go into business for yourself!

You bet we did. They were mostly gone before we made it to Todd and Jessaca's (the next stop). Awesome job. Cute plates too. I want a do-over on the treats I gave you. :)
