For Ian's birthday on Wed. he wanted me to make cupcakes for his class. I normally just use box mixes for my cake because they are so moist and you really cant mess them up but for some reason I wanted to do a batter from scratch. I got on this website called Cupcakes Take the Cake and she had posted a recipe for cupcakes from the Magnolia Bakery in New York. Oh - My - Heck (as they say here in Utah) I seriously could have eaten the entire bowl of raw batter. Unbelievable and so easy. Im going to post the recipe on my recipe blog too because I will have to use that one again and again and again.
I needed something easy for Ians cupcakes because I didnt have a lot of time so I stuck chocolate/caramel Eyeballs on each cupcake. I thought they turned out cute and he said his classmates loved them which is all that matters of course. It turned out when I started making them that I was out of just about everything so I ran to the corner market and bought a few things, came back and realized I was out of something else, ran back to the market for that, came back and couldnt find my cupcake liners, ran back to market for those. The girl that works there probably thought I had lost it because by then, I felt like I had......she asked me this morning as I was grabbing a sprite for Evan (who is sick) "hey, did you ever get those cupcakes made?" Yeah, rough day. The things we do for our kids.
