You Like Cupcakes, Yes? 5 Recipes of Goodness
Published August 9, 2012
So ever since my Joss Whedon Cupcake Campaign post a few weeks ago, I’ve had this zombie-level need for cupcakes. With lots of frosting. Seriously, like GOBS of frosting. (Because as any 4-year-old will tell you, the frosting is the best part.) And since work has just calmed down, what better way to bring on the reading / writing / cleaning-my-embarrassingly-dirty-house goodness than with cupcakes?
Hence I dub this weekend **BAKING WEEKEND**.
Oh…and did I mention it’s Wolverine’s birthday on Saturday? <— Let’s just all take a moment of silence for the handsome man, shall we?
Okay, we can now commence with the birthday singing. And while you’re busy singing (and wondering just exactly HOW OLD he’s turning), I’ve got some cupcake recipes to share for this month’s Reading Recipes. The first one, I’m not counting as an actual recipe though because, well, you just add water. It’s my laziest baking thing ever. But it’s honestly one of my favorites. In the entire universe. It makes these:
And are you ready for it?
Don’t hate me because it’s truly so lazy, okay?
You simply take this (or any other angel food cake mix):
Add water. Mix. Bake.
And here’s the tricky part —> You cover the cupcakes with this Fluffy White Frosting (yes it HAS to be THIS type of frosting in order to be awesomely delicious and taste like marshmallows). And I just realized this post now looks like a Betty Crocker add. Sheesh. I swear it’s not – they’re just super yummy! ;0)
The result is these sweet babies:
Easy and fabulous melt-in-your-mouth cupcakes.
And for some REAL cupcake recipes that require actual effort on the part of us reading / baking-type people…well, I’ve put together the below list. I’ve not actually tried any of them, but I WILL over the next few weeks when I’m searching for sustenance to eat while reading. Probably in this order:
Everything about these has me intrigued (including her gorgeous photos).
Good heavens I need these like Harry needs his friends.
Like summer in the form of a cupcake. I could make these with the giant peaches we picked last week.
I heart anything zucchini. That is all we need know.
Might. Be. The. Best. Invention. Ever. Mmm…
How about YOU, preciouses? What are you reading or eating or generally up to as we head toward this fine birthday weekend?
