Right now I’m actually under the weather, my tummy is playing games with me and it feels full and empty at the same time and my entire body aches and I don’t like it one bit. But I’m in bed, drinking tea, updating my blog… resting, or whatever it’s called.
Here come a lot of pictures and some words… Remember when I was the saddest baker in the world? Okay, so not really, but I was pretty bummed when I had that cupcake fail last week. Well, I still had all the cream-cheese frosting I made, so of course I had to make cupcakes to put under that frosting.
I took these guys out of the freezer, and followed a banana cupcake recipe that I feel confident about. This time I added mini chocolate chips.
I was in a really good mood to begin, I was glad to be baking and it felt right. I had a cupcake success! 2 dozen regular guys and a 10 babies.
This time I used a pastry bag with no tip and tried to follow a different way to frost them, which I had seen on some video on the internet. The frosting was on the sweeter side (I don’t like super sweet frosting all that much) and I pretty much ran out when it was time to cover the minis, but a dollop did the job.
The cupcakes themselves are the perfect amount of sweetness for me. The littles were even enjoyed by a friend of mine who declares he does not like sweets and usually doesn’t give mine a try, but I think I may have convinced him otherwise.
