Today is Jason's B-Day, and I made him some cupcakes!!
I started last night - I used a vanilla cake recipe from Southern Living Magazine, and it worked VERY well --they also made the whole kitchen smell like vanilla!
In the 1970s oven! This oven is the reason I can't make French Macarons. When I get my own house- they will be the FIRST thing I make!!!
I have an obsession with the silver foil wrappers these days--and they're the cheapest ones, so it works out well! yay!
I did the icing in the fashion I invented called cupcake "kisses". You just put icing in a bag and cut a large hole the squeeze the icing on and lift straight up. Comes out looking like a Hershey Kiss!
I brought them to Jason at work- I was just gonna drop them off in the front office, but the very sweet secretary talked me into bringing them to his classroom. I was in super casual clothes cuz I had a meeting with my grad school counselor today, but He was so happy--so it was worth it!! :)
