Celebrating With Cupcakes

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!

We celebrated Father's Day at Johnny Carino's, too. We were there (on 41st St.) Sunday night at 6.
Were you there, too?

You know what they say, "It is what inside that counts", and cupcakes are the best when they are inside the tummy.

Hi Carol,
your cupcakes looks delicious!

Cupcake wars has gotten so bizarre, I don't think I would want to eat their hotdog, onion, grape jelly and jalapeno cupcakes anyway.
