Last week was the first anniversary of Mom passing and I went to Greenville to have lunch with Dad. We ate Mexican food and made brownies. The food was delicious. The brownies were not great. It was fun to hang out with Dad though, even in such a sad time.
So instead of posting about the sad not very good brownies, I’m going to tell you about these terrific cupcakes I made with the help and hospitality of Ana and her kids! It was a very happy scene with smiling baby boys and good grown up conversation. And we had all but the sour cream in house. Gotta love the cheap weeks of baking treats.
Don’t judge my artistic abilities with the frosting. It was my first ever time using a piping/pastry bag and I was trying to blend butter cream and Nutella all in one. No baby steps when it comes to baking for this group! Nutella is more runny than I realized and Ana needs a hand mixer (the woman made butter cream frosting literally by hand!) The cupcakes turned out great though. I’ll be remaking this recipe for sure.
Oh, if anyone wants a copy of the actual recipes on these treats I make, leave a comment for that week. It just occurred to me that you may want to recipe and not just my take in how it turned out. I’m going to try to post that each week also.
I’ve just got to figure out how…. Good think I married a tech guy, huh? 🙂 I’m sure his ears are burning right now….
