So I got one. (:
I was excited to make these cupcakes for 3 reasons.
1. They're FUNFETTI! And I've never made that kind before, which is weird because I love funfetti cakes.
2. I was also excited because my mom gave me her electric mixer! I was all ready to start mixing everything together when I opened the box, and there weren't any beaters!! Sigh. But it was funny because that's exactly something my mom and I would do. So I just wisked away like usual.
Then I poured it into these paper liners that I always forget I have. I like them because they're cute pastel/Easter colors.
3. I went shopping Saturday and there is a new-ish store in the mall (back home) that has a lot of things that are on Modcloth.com (which I loooove.) They had this cupcake kit that I have wanted for forever so I had to buy it. And then I had to bake some cupcakes so I could use it.
I put pink icing on one side of the piping bag and white icing on the other side so it would come out swirled together. The pink icing came with some Valentine's sprinkles!
I think these are the best cupcakes that I've ever made with this crappy oven. They weren't as overbaked on the tops as they usually are! I think it might have something to do with using paper liners, so I'm going to use those every time from now on.
I put as many cupcakes as I could on a cookie sheet (just to put them on something when everyone came over) and there were three left over, which worked out perfectly! One for me and each of my roommates! I put the last three on a paper plate and put them in the fridge. I'm glad I did because by the end of the night, the rest of the cupcakes were gone! :D
