Last weekend, Butter Rum Cupcakes!

So, what have I been up to lately? Well, this past weekend I did not update the blog because we went out of town to visit some family and of course, I made them some cupcakes. I actually made some butter rum cupcakes with a buttercream icing and the funny thing is I did not have any of my tools to do anything. I had to kind of pull all of the recipes from somewhere in the back of my brain. I have no idea how I actually was able to remember all of that stuff. I had to improvise on measurements because there were no measuring cups or spoons. No decorating bags or icing tips, so ziploc bags it was. The classic swirl turned out nice, and surprisingly the cupcakes turned out really good, too! What can I say? I’m a genius (a professional genius at that)! Put me in the kitchen and I make magic happen! Lol!

Butter rum was actually not a flavor that I planned on making, but everyone seemed to like the cupcakes and I can definitely add it to my resume. So, the recipe for a nice relaxing weekend calls for: family and friends, nice weather, fresh air, and some delicious cupcakes. Yum!

Happy 4th of July!

Hello everyone hope everyone had a great 4th of July. I did make 4th of July cupcakes and they turned out really and really cute. I wanted to stick with the theme of red white and blue, so I did the red velvet cupcake with whipped white and blue icing. The other cupcakes are a vanilla cupcake with a vanilla buttercream icing topped with red white and blue sprinkles. The pictures are posted below. Hope you enjoy. Yum!

Yellow Cupcakes with Chocolate Icing, Finally!

You are going to be very proud of me. I finally made the yellow cupcakes with the chocolate icing and also I made some lemon cupcakes with lemon icing. The pictures are posted below for you to see.They were very good. The yellow cupcakes were very moist and had a nice butter flavor to them. Everyone really enjoyed them. The lemon cupcakes were nice and lemony. Check back soon because I will be doing some fourth of July cupcakes for this upcoming holiday! Yum!

No Yellow Cupcakes Yet! But something just as tasty!

Okay, so I know I said I was working on the yellow cupcakes with the chocolate icing but things happened and I never got a chance to do it. I’ll probably end up doing it this weekend, however, I did want to post some pictures of what I was actually working on. I was making some cupcakes for a party for a family friend. Below are the pictures of the so decadent, so velvety, and so vanilla cupcakes that i made for the party (they are the mini’s). I think they turned out very good. The party had a good turnout, and it seems like everyone enjoyed them! Yum!
