The kitchen looked like this
but the fridge looked like this!
It was Reid Justin’s (oldest son) birthday yesterday and I wanted to do something special for his housewarming/birthday party. So I searched the net and found three bakeshop style cupcake recipes. They all sounded so delicious that I decided that mini was the way to go. That way no one would have to choose just one flavor.
Here they are!
Sprinkles Cupcakes’ Strawberry Cupcakes from Oprah.com – this recipe link even has videos!
Banana Cupcakes with Honey-Cinnamon Frosting at marthastewart.com – my favorite and I made them slightly healthier by replacing half the melted butter with oil
Meyer Lemon Raspberry Cupcakes at marthastewart.com
The secret – homemade lemon curd filling – so good!
Don’t they look fun? Can you see the bee that zoomed by just as I snapped the picture?
The new house is very modern – so I couldn’t see using a fussy cupcake stand. The solution? Cedar planks (for grilling salmon)
I think it works
Sylie and Cooper approve
The party was great!
