I made Red Velvet Cupcakes from a recipe I got from the Bitchin' Kitchen blog, Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes, and Chocolate Cheesecake Filled Cupcakes from Sugar Plum Blog, and Rainbow cupcakes that I found in a Blogger forum. With the right tools, I was able make some awesome cupcakes that people raved over. I bought this frosting tool that kind of looks like a caulking gun and has a bunch of different tips that goes with it, this thing is essential for all your frosting needs. So, with the help of my new toy, I was able to not only make good tasting cupcakes, but pretty ones too! This tool is way easier to work with than a frosting bag, and is a must-have for any of you fellow non-girly girls. I'm honestly impressed with myself. This girl who was raised by her father, who played with bugs in the dirt since she was a toddler, and refused to wear dresses until 8th grade, made girly looking, great tasting baked goods!
If you want to make some bad ass cupcakes, check out the links below. Don't be intimidated to do things from scratch, these little buggers are worth it. The rainbow cupcakes are way easy, all you do is make your favorite white cake batter, divide it up into small bowls, add food coloring to each of the bowls, depending what colors you want, then spoon each color into your cupcake tins and bake. After they cool, add whatever frosting you choose. So to be honest, making cupcakes from scratch was a lot of work, but If I can do it, so can you!! Plus, it feels really good to know you can create something delicious and pretty and still be a tomboy at the same time. Just take my advice and only do one type at a time...unless you want achy feet, a sore back, and tired nerves :).
