Cupcakes!

Today my favorite little preschooler turned four!  Isabelle and I spent Charlotte's nap time (which she calls our "special alone time") making cupcakes for her party tomorrow.



This little munchkin wanted strawberry cupcakes.  We added a box of vanilla pudding to make a standard cake mix extra delicious and moist.




My favorite frosting method is to cut the tip of a piping bag and to avoid frosting tips altogether - it's super fast.



We ate ourselves sick on batter and cream cheese frosting.  9 times out of 10 I'd pick batter/dough over the actual baked good.  Cookie dough, brownies, cake batter - it makes no difference.  I know, I know… raw eggs.


I'm curious - do you prefer to eat yourself sick on cupcake batter or are you patient enough to wait the 18 minutes until they're baked?  Or maybe you're more sensible and don't eat yourself sick…?

  2. Licking the bowl of batter for cookies, cakes and frosting is definitely the best!

  3. I'd take cookie dough over cookies any day. And yes, I eat way too much when given the chance!

  5. Super adorable! Hope Isabelle has a fabulous bday! I can definitely lick myself sick on frosting, or cookie dough, but I'd rather wait for the baked cupcakes!

  9. i only like dough. i could eat the entire kitchenaid bowl full of cookie dough or brownie batter. cake batter is better as cake, though. but only with lots of frosting.

  12. I eat any kind of batter by the spoonful. Why is it soooo delicious? Also, I freeze small balls of cookie dough - which never seem to get baked, only eaten.

  13. Right there with you - the batter is the best part!

  14. By the time any cookies are baked around here, I'm over them because I've had so much dough. When I make my favorite oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, I even save some dough aside to snack on later. I like that my husband won't go near dough because of the raw eggs, because that means more for me!
