I promise this blog won't be all serious, all the time. So to lighten things up, I thought we'd talk about something a little sweeter. A little pinker. Yes, we're talking about cupcakes!
For my sister-in-law's bachelorette
party day, I was in charge of bringing cupcakes. These could either be purchased or baked. Didn't matter. Seeing that I love baking and had some free time, the obvious decision was to bake them. At first, I was all gung ho and thought I would make everything from scratch. The morning of the party. (oops) As the clock was ticking, it was either bake them from scratch and show up late; or play it safe, use a box mix, and arrive at brunch on time.
The additional raspberry preserves may make the frosting a little thinner, so add a little more powdered sugar to thicken things up. If this frosting is too thick, add a little more champagne.
