Baking Time!

We’ve moved into dessert for the big birthday party coming up weekend after next (already!)… and this time tried out “White Wedding Cake Cupcakes” which were of course, found on Pinterest via Recipe Girl.

This cupcake recipe is so so good!  We’re pretty good bakers over here… and this recipe definitely takes the cake! ;]

There was also a frosting recipe given along with the cupcakes, and so we of course followed that as well, adding a little food coloring at the end and testing out our piping skills.

We did have a little accident while mixing the frosting (while still in the powdered sugar stage)… while not funny in any way, it was. ;]

(See the powdered sugar everywhere?)

It’s a pretty great recipe, I’d recommend!  It will be making an appearance at the party!

  1. Ah….the “whoops” photo does NOT do justice to the mess unfortunately…but all in all a definite success! And the wings as well!
