cupcake perfection!!!!



Well.....here I am on my very first morning of making cupcakes all by my very ownself!! I could barely sleep last night knowing I was going to be doing this! I made two batches of cupcakes using the recipe Marzipan Mom taught me....one as a birthday treat for my dear friend Miss A. tomorrow....more on that tomorrow...and one batch I put in the freezer to have as a treat next weekend when my sister and mom are in town visiting.



And they turned out perfecty scrumptious!!!!!!! I am just sooooo happy! Now I know I can do it!!!!



......all I need is my very own mixer so I don't have to keep borrowing my sister in laws :)...I know to most, making your own cupcakes and buttercream frosting from scratch aren't a big deal....and for many of you, you truly enjoy it...but this is a turning point in my life!!! I don't "enjoy" it yet......I LLLOOOOVVVEEE eating them when they are done though!!! ....but the possibilities are endless.....sooooo many cupcakes, so little time!

I'm SOOOO proud! And I knew you could do it! They look like professional cupcakes!! I'm sure your friend loved them! My only question is....what's next for the treatgirl?

I agree! It boggles the mind thinking about all of the cake/filling/frosting combos one could dream up for cupcakes. I like your peanut butter idea but the filling would have to be pretty light and not too oily so I would sort of whip peanut butter into some chocolate or vanilla frosting with some heavy cream added at the end so it wouldn't separate... that would be my tip for that.

Your scratch cupcakes look amazing! Yes, you need a stand mixer of your own... NEED!

You and your Chip look adorable dressed up in the sidebar.
