hahaha = Last nights epic dinner fail.
I tried two new recipes on Pinterest. My gosh they turned out horrible in my opinion. Husband ate every bite and swore it was still good. Isn't he the sweetest?
I was pretty darn frustrated that my dinner was a flop. Determined to make up for it, I made cupcakes.
I found this PIN on pinterest a few weeks back. I really want to enhance my baking skills. I do alright cooking wise, ignoring last nights failure. But, baking isn't my strong suit. Somehow, I always manage to over cook cakes or desserts. Baking is my kryptonite. (fun fact, I just googled "superman's weakness" to check out how to spell kryptonite.HA!)
So, in order to push myself a little I'm doing:
Yep, 31 flavors of cupcakes. I'm going to master them all. No, I will not be making one a day. The recipe makes about 20 cupcakes. If I made a new one everyday, husband and I might die of cupcake overdose. I'm thinking 2 or 3 a month. Extra bonus, I'm going to send the leftovers to friends and family. My popularity should grow leaps and bounds:)
Last night, I made the first one. Husband picked Sour Cream Raspberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. (we aren't going in order, instead, we are going by what sounds the best at the moment, which is a much better way to go about it, right?)
They turned out kind of amazing. Okay, really amazing. Like it's 11 in the morning now, and I may or may not be munching down on one as I type. So so so good!
Here's the recipe:
I stirred my raspberries in a little more so that they really mushed down, and the batter turned purple. So much more fun!
Want to join in the challenge? Email me (katie dot kubler at yahoo dot com) I'll email you a few days before I make the next one, you can email me your images of how your cupcakes turned out (and if you did anything different to the recipe), and I'll include them in my post!) Don't feel like you have to do every cupcake like me, if you miss one or don't like one... that's okay:)
We can better the world through cupcakes together:) Happy Baking!
