I have had the strangest craving for cupcakes recently, and I do believe the result will be some experimentation in decorating. :yum:
Throughout my life, I can say I’ve never been the biggest fan of cupcakes. However, after reading through some of Robyn‘s fooding adventures involving cupcakes, I’ve developed a desire to have cupcakes, and I’m going to attribute it to the fact that I have clearly been on lifelong deprivation of really good cupcakes. I can honestly say I’ve never had a cupcake that wasn’t made from supermarket cake mix and meagerly frosted with supermarket canned frosting.
Clearly, I am in dire need of enlightenment.
So I think that as soon as I can find the time (i.e. after the Ballroom Dance Team‘s Masquerade Ball and competition at UConn, and after my art history midterms and papers are due XP), I am going to have to make some cupcakes and frost and decorate them myself. I might even turn it into a serious practice session for cake-decorating and attempt to create bejeweled cakelets in honor of my new job with Whitehall Jewellers. 🙂 Lord knows that judging from the results of my birthday cake-creation, I can definitely use some practice in the creating-art-with-icing department. 😛
On that note, I’d love for suggestions from any readers on what sort of cupcakes to bake and how to make my first from-scratch cupcake experience Teh Best Evar, OMG! 😀
