S'MORES Cupcakes!

Since yesterday was National Chocolate Cake Day AND the celebration of my mom's birthday I decided to make these S'mores cupcakes! I found the recipe on Bakerella.com (One of my FAVORITE websites!)

Neapolitan Cupcakes

Starting off my Valentine's Cupcakes, I have been waiting for the perfect occasion to break out these neapolitan cupcakes! I used a recipe from HowToEatACupcake.net, and instead of side by side I did chocolate on the bottom, vanilla in the middle, and strawberry frosting on top! Just like those little ice cream sandwiches I used to eat when I was little.

Enjoy! =]

Chocolate first, then vanilla!

Into the oven...

Are they done yet?

My makeshift double boiler makes the best frosting.

Finished =]

Mmm Butterfinger...

Yes, you guessed it, butterfingers are a weakness of mine. I'm usually more of a sour candy type of girl, but when it comes to a chocolate bar, butterfinger is where its at. So lucky for me my mom's best friend/neighbor brought over an article from Food Network Magazine with recipes for cupcakes inspired by candy bars! I'm currently a little disorganized and seem to have misplaced this article, so I'm sorry I can't tell you more about it. My cousin was in town for a week, so she helped me with these cupcakes as well.



Cupcakes For Dinner?

So if you guys haven't already noticed, my cousin Ashley is one of my favorite people to bake with (besides my handsome assistant, which you will see in some pictures very soon). And one of our favorite books to bake with is Hello Cupcake!

We decided to take on the challenge of the TV Dinner Cupcakes, and surprisingly it wasn't very hard to do. We made a batch of 12 vanilla cupcakes, and we each got a little silver tray that holds 6 cupcakes. We turned it into somewhat of a challenge of who could make the better TV Dinner, what do you guys think?

Mine is in front, Ashley’s is in back.


Happy New Year!

Sooooo I spent my New Years up in Northern California with my cousin Ashley and our families. You know what that means....cupcakes!

I did a simple vanilla cake mix (I was on vacation so I cheated!) and added a tablespoon of cinnamon to the mix! Poured the batter into gold liners, then sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar before baking! Then for the frosting I used a simple butter+powered sugar recipe then added a little vanilla and cinnamon! I used a plastic bag to pipe the frosting ( I left my piping bags at home =[ ) and decorated them with silver edible glitter and ivory pearlized sugar candy. Topped with a Happy New Years sign! =] the signs were purchased HERE at Orange Novelty Cake Supplies.
