This week’s cupcakes

July23 005

After all my hemming and hawing, i went with basic chocolate cupcakes and vanilla buttercream frosting. May yet try a bit of garnishing with some mini-chocolate chips, but damn. That is some fine frosting action if I do say so myself. These will be accompanying me to knit night, by the by ;)

How long will this cupcake jag last, you might ask? (This is my 3rd batch of cupcakes in 3 weeks.) Well, at least one more week, because next week is my birthday. And also, I have a twin. So surely I could not be blamed for baking a different batch for each of us, right? and because it’s our birthday, gluttonous and indulgent recipes are required, right? Good. I’m glad we’re in agreement.

    Of course you should definately bake two batches!! And maybe even three – one for each of you and then one to share ;)

  5. Definitely fine frosting action! I am torn between cupcakes and butterscotchy lemon curd cake from Yarnstorm for my b’day cake. Mines on the 28th so just in front of you and your sis :)
