Still green

Thursday, March 18, 2010

I did it.  I did it.  I made the St Pattys Day cupcakes last night. 
And I think they turned out great.  
I love this picture of the cute little cupcake.  

I'm telling you - Paula Deen would be so proud.  These things were made from scratch and there was enough cream cheese and butter used that I know she would approve.  However, the recipe said it would make 36 cupcakes... I only had a pan for 24.  So, I baked a cake to go with the cupcakes.
Yes, it's hideous to look at but it was SOOO good.  It made a thin cake, so I cut the cake in half and put the icing between the layers and then piled on the icing to cover it.  And since I still had so much icing left over... I put some green food coloring in and made it for the border and the shamrock.  Yes, I know it's terrible.  I admit it.  I'm no Carol Fanning!!  

Last night was a great stress reliever from the week.  I don't think I've had that much fun in the kitchen in at least a month.  =)  I had powdered sugar, EVERYWHERE.  I had homemade cream cheese icing up to my elbows and did I mention... I'm still green?
