The other evening I instagramed a couple of pictures while baking. I couldn’t find my camera which was in my bag which was missing so I also couldn’t find my keys or wallet and I couldn’t go to the store to get more confectionary sugar so messed with my frosting recipe and made-do with what I had, and it really all worked out fine and it turned out my bag was under a shirt in the kitchen on a chair… pretty much that explains why I used my iPhone for the pictures and why I was “live blog/baking” for all of 2 pictures on Instagram.
I saw the recipe for these cupcakes in Martha Stewart Living last month and have been wanting to try it out. The recipe in the magazine uses a different, fancier frosting, but I liked mine and (mostly) had all the ingredients for it. I was also really looking forward to using good farmer’s market blueberries and I went last Saturday and picked some up, so I just had to make these cupcakes. They are AWESOME. And combined with my frosting, they have a very subtle sweetness. I want to try the cupcake recipe sans blueberries as a base for some other ad-ins sometime.
(…don’t worry, I am wearing an apron in the first picture. It’s just a half apron. I always wear one when baking, of course)
