On Saturday, it became very clear to me that I
have a long way to go before I would ever qualify to compete
on that Food Network show, Cupcake Wars.
I baked the chocolate fudge cupcakes Friday evening so I could frost them Saturday before we had dinner with our kids at Johnny Carinos.
I used aluminum foil cupcake liners that can be baked on a cookie sheet.
I pushed a Hershey kiss down in the center of each cupcake
after they had baked 5 minutes (a Pinterest idea).
Apparently I over filled the liners because the batter ran down the sides creating an ugly mess.
Hmm, I guess you could say these cupcakes are rustic.
Butter Cream Icing
1 package softened cream cheese
1/2 cup softened butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
The cupcakes were very rich & delicious.
I think you could put butter cream icing on cardboard & it would be yummy!
