I am so excited to announce that there’s a new edition to the family — my sister’s having a baby! I’m going to be Auntie Coco!
We just had her baby shower over the weekend, and I was able to make mini cupcakes – 96, that is: 24 cupcakes of each of the 4 flavors! I rushed home from school on Friday and started baking both mini chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. Then on Saturday, I woke up at 6:30 to start frosting them for the 12 o’ clock shower. (I know that sounds excessively early, but I had to allow time to get pretty, too!) Anyhow, Enjoy!
My first cupcake was a simple vanilla cake with vanilla butter-cream frosting, topped with either a yellow or green sprinkle flower with a white pearl center. (My sister’s not finding out the sex, so green and yellow seemed appropriate)
My second cupcake was a vanilla cake with a lemon curd butter-cream, topped with yellow sprinkles (for color) and sugared lemon peels.
My third cupcake was a chocolate cake with a swirled raspberry butter-cream, topped with a single white pearl.
My final cupcake was my absolute favorite! It’s a chocolate cake filled with caramel, topped with a salted, chocolate butter-cream, sugar roasted walnuts, and a caramel drizzle. It wasn’t the prettiest cupcake out there, but I think it was the most delicious!
