Birthday Cupcakes...again

Not much new to see here. I used the same recipe that I used for Seconda's birthday cupcakes last year. And colored the frosting almost the same color. But it was all on request, so blame her. I did attempt to fill them with BAKED milk chocolate frosting (again, on request),

which was delicious, but without the right kind of pastry tip, my technique was lacking. I need one of these:

But they looked pretty.

And the birthday girl blew out 8 candles in one try.

I have vowed never to use these again.

(Wilton baking cups. The Reynolds brand is just fine. These ones pull away from the cake as you can see. Which can be pretty problematic)

Oh, and, I participated in my first bake sale.

And it wasn't even for my kids' school. It was for a theatre. Bet you could have guessed that one.

Next up: Farmers' Market challenge. I don't know what I'm baking next. I'm going to visit the Farmers' Market on a Saturday morning, see what there is to be seen, and make a decision about what to bake. I'm crossing my fingers that there will be more than rhubarb and collard greens available.

Dude....again i stress, what the HELL kind of cupcake liners are you using? I just go to my local (WalMart) grocery store, head to the baking isle, pick up a pack of 50 and go make cupcakes. I just dont have this issue, it's so weird to me...

Min--the problem is I like for my liners to be white. Which is why I haven't bought the Reynolds ones in a while (those are probably what you get at the grocery store--they always have a package of pastels). I got the Wilton ones at Michaels, in the cake aisle.
