Cupcakes

Just before Easter (literally one night) I decided to make some cupcakes. Now, one thing worth knowing about me is that if I get something interesting to do stuck in my head generally won’t stop until I achieve whatever it is I’m thinking of, that’s just how I am. Just think of my ice cream business or my smoker! Anyway, I started watching videos on cake decorating and that evolved into buttercream techniques which in turn became cupcakes so, thanks to my compulsive personality (we can thank my dad for that one) I naturally had to try my hand at cupcakes. I decided to make a straightforward cupcake: chocolate cake with a vanilla buttercream. I have to say, they were pretty awesome. I mean, when you think about it, there’s no way a cupcake could be bad; they’re just tiny cakes with the icing to cake ratio way off! In favour of the icing of course. Also, they were super fun to make. I won’t give you the recipe for the cake because you could easily find one you enjoy (if you don’t already have one) but the recipe for buttercream I found is pretty good, also, just because it confused me, use: 3 cups butter, 2 cups sugar, and 1 cup egg whites, just so you don’t need to weigh anything, but, here it is: http://fillinthecake.blogspot.ca/2008/07/wedding-cake-day-1-swiss-meringue.html (just be sparing with this frosting because it is very rich)

So, get inspired!
