chocolate cupcakes w/ rosewater vanilla frosting and chocolate marshmallow cupcakes! [26 May 2007|09:27pm]

I just found this community tonight and I'm in cupcake heaven!

I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to all forms of baking-- to give you an example, I just today found out that it's really important to have all of your ingredients (including your eggs) at room temperature when baking. Who knew? Probably most of the free world, but that'll tell you how much I know about working in a kitchen. Today I decided to try out a few new recipes.

I made a batch of Hummingbird Cupcakes and MiniCupcakes today.  Here are a couple of pictures of the mini ones.


And the winner is... [19 May 2007|02:52pm]


So me and mom (mostly me, she's just helping me) are trying to get into a local wholesale candy/cake/cookie/cupcake/etc. business.  I couldn't think of a name for anything.  I kept going back to this name I came up with a few years ago when we were thinking about doing a candy store.  I had come up with "The Sugar Plump Faeries."  Since I'm so sweet and well...plump!  My aunt thought it would make people not want to buy it cause you would think it would make you fat...well all sugar does...so screw it.  I kept going back to that name.  So that's it.  It's going to be called:

"The Sugar Plump Faeries: Sweets, Treats, & Good Eats"

What do ya'll think?

Have any of you used some of the Cake Mix Doctor recipes to make a cake?  Can you tell much of a difference in one of her cakes and a cake made from scratch?

Raspberry (cheesecake?) cupcakes [23 Mar 2006|03:18pm]

white blogging along, i found this recipe in recipesatrocity. i'm vegan, and these puppies also maybe stretch the definition of cupcake, but they still sounded pretty decadent. (a tofutti version, anyone?)

raspberry cupcakes

3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup chopped pecans
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup fresh raspberries, crushed
1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
10 1/2 fluid ounces sweetened condensed milk
1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed

Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper cup liners. In a medium bowl,
combine graham cracker crumbs, crushed pecans and melted margarine, mixing
well to blend. Spoon mixture evenly into a 12 cup muffin pan lined with
paper cup liners. Press mixture with a spoon to firm bottom. Puree
raspberries and set aside.
Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add condensed milk and 1/2 cup of the
raspberry puree and mix until well blended. Fold in whipped topping.
Spoon evenly into baking cups. Freeze for at least 5 hours. When ready
to serve, remove paper liners. Invert cakes onto individual serving
plates. Drizzle remaining raspberry puree over cakes. Garnish with a few
whole raspberries. Serve frozen.

Sesame Street Cupcakes [22 Mar 2006|10:12pm]
Hi! I just joined, I have SUCH a weakness for cupcakes. I currently live in a dorm so I am without an oven to create petit gateau (since college kids set fire to everything, including water haha) but in a couple months I am moving into a house with gasp a kitchen!

I wondered if anyone else ever went to the supermarket bakery or their local bakery and ever have a fondness for the sesame street cupcakes. They would have piles and piles of sky high frosting in the most vibrant colors of various characters. I speak so eloquently about those cupcakes, but it seems they have disappeared :( (atleast around here anyway) Everyone's afraid of sugar now. I wondered if anyone else shared this passion for these chracter cupcakes. This summer I will attempt to recreate the magic.

Very awesome community.
