I’ve been jones-ing to make some cupcakes since I bought a fancy cupcake decorating kit at Home Goods (the random check out counter items they display) and finally got the chance to do so this weekend for a family member’s birthday celebration. Plans were almost scrapped when the whipping cream didn’t whip up for the whipped cream cheese frosting but after schlepping to the store in the middle of the night, a new carton of whipped cream solved the dilemma. The results were festive and fun…and I resisted COMPLETE indulgence by chomping on a half a pack of gum during the preparation in order to not “taste test” throughout the process. That was a stroke of genius that my thighs will appreciate. Check out how cute they turned out. Let’s hope they taste as good as they look.
The frosting was colored with NEON colors. Aren’t they fun? How about you? What baking fun have you done recently?
