It’s Oscar night! So, while I sit here watching the Oscars and getting a bit jealous of how fantastic everyone looks… I am eating these delicious cupcakes. Wonder why I can’t fit into those gorgeous dresses?! Whatever… totally worth it. These are amazing. This is probably one of my favorite cupcake recipes that I have tried out in a while. Thank you, Cooking Classy. I did not have to vary much from the recipe on her site. She also provided some great advice. Please check it out!
If you like the look of the ice cream scoop inspired frosting (my attempt is at the top of the page) – double the frosting recipe. I had a difficult time getting this look to work and really only got three cupcakes that it worked well on. If I could go back, I would probably leave the icing in the fridge for an hour before attempting. I used an ice cream scope to get the effect, but had to clean it out completely before each scoop. The other issue with this style of frosting, is that it is a TON of frosting! Now, I love frosting (esp. this frosting) and judge those who don’t, but the ice cream scope of frosting is lil too much. I think these cupcakes would be just as cute with a normal decorative frosting.
OK, cutting this blog a bit short. Time to veg out on my couch… and sneak one more cupcake when Bob isn’t looking! Great Sunday night with this guy at my feet…
