cupcake 101

bake cupcakes just like saucy, it is the only way i will ever make cupcakes again. the icing recipe saucy shares is also the best icing ever......use it at your own risk...it is dangerously amazing.

here it is if you are feeling brave...


Saucy's Never-Fail Frosting
1 cup butter at room temperature*
1 cup vegetable shortening at room temperature (ie. Crisco)
1 teaspoon white vanilla (ie. Wilton)
4 cups confectioners/icing sugar2 tablespoons whipping cream
Best made in a stand mixer.
Cream together the butter and shortening thoroughly. Add the sugar, one cup at a time until blended. Beat in the vanilla as you go. When the sugar is completely beaten in, make sure the sides of the bowl are scraped down. Add the whipping cream, beating at the highest speed until super fluffy, about one minute. Use immediately. Store covered in refrigerator when not in use.

Saucy and Loopy schooled me in cupcake class 101. Let's just say professional production line. These gals are pros.
Here are a few of our masterpieces.

um.... do you dress like that every time you bake? Good woman. I wear my sweats with the hole in the crotch.
Love your blog, and your kitchen is fabulous!

dear anonymous,
crotch holes are great for summer baking thanks for the tip-in the photos above I was on my way out the door to meet my gal pals- I had 15 minutes to get ready as my baby splashed in the tub and I applied mascara as I sang the rubber ducky song.
loved your comment (so did mc dreamy),
