Hello. If you couldn’t guess it already I really love cupcakes. They’re pretty much the best thing ever. They’re tasty, adorable and much easier to make then a whole cake. And there’s just something really great about being able to have a tasty treat in palm your hand. I began to really enjoy making cupcakes around my son’s first birthday. I figured seeing as the tradition was to allow your child to make a complete and total mess of his/her cake that a cupcake would be ideal. Only previous to then I had only made cupcakes for the taste value, not worrying about visual appeal. I took the whole month of January (my son’s birthday is late January) to experiment with piping tips and making butter-cream frosting until I had it down to an art form. Or at least a heck of a lot better than just slathering frosting on top of a cupcake and calling it a day! Since then I’ve just loved making cupcakes. I use any and all holidays as an excuse to make them. Only seeing as we’re a family of three with no other family in the area that makes a small dilemma of having mass amounts of cupcakes around the house. So I’ve started pawning them off on my husband’s co-workers! It’s a win-win situation. I get to make the cupcakes and not have to worry about stuffing my face with them! I decided in addition to making cupcakes on any and all holidays to just go all out and make one recipe a week and blog about it. Welcome to the Weekly Cupcake!!
