Danci Andi they are amazing! I haven't made cupcakes for months but after seeing those I know what I will be doing tomorrow!
Hee-hee. You're too kind. It was like spackle, really! I redeemed myself, however, when I baked some vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting a few weeks ago. I just double up on the vanilla extract and am happy enough with the vanilla flavor, but I know those of you with more experience tend to obsess over your vanilla. Oh, these were good cupcakes though. Very light and the frosting was light, airy and perfect. I haven't piped yet, so just a big dollop o'frosting, and they were good to go!DandiAndi|1331292826|3144871 said:Hi LV! I tend to cream the butter, cream cheese and strawberry puree/jam together, and then add a bit of strawberry essence/extract to make it more strawberry-ey without having to add too much jam. Then I add the icing sugar to get the consistency right, so I can control how thick it is or isn't. It doesn't usually have that light buttercream consistency, it's typically thicker, but I prefer that so I stick to cc! I bet yours tasted delicious though! And yes, my goodness you have a wonderful memory! I went to one of the Magnolia bakeries in NYC. I bought a carrot cake and a vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream. The carrot cake was pretty good, but OH the vanilla was amazing! I appreciate it moreso because I struggle to get a really good vanilla cuppie for some reason, it's the toughtest one to master, for me!
Hehe thanks Lottie! Do it do it do it! I can enable more things than just jewellery purchases yanno
Thankyou so much Skippy! How are those beautiful boys of yours??
I'm not just a bling enabler, yanno Your pumpkin cupcakes look absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS. I ate pumpkin cake for the first time when I went to the USA last year, and YUM!!Lottie UK|1332017114|3150965 said:Thanks DA, I can feel a period of cupcaking beginning (such a quick hit!) and I completely blame you
Today - Pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and brownie crumbs sprinkled on top. Piping was a pain because the kitchen was warm and I should have put it in the fridge for 15 mins before I started piping.
