The Martha Stewart Cupcakes Club assignment coincides with The Son's class party— perfect!
The Son's teacher apparently has banned candy from being exchanged, but as Class Parent and Party Planner, I get a little leeway, no? I'm going to put a little chocolate ♡ on the cupcake.
The tracing, a bit large, was a rough guide.
With a little help from Candy Melts and a disposable piping bag,
I was able to pipe these babies out in a few minutes.
The cake part shouldn't have been difficult. The recipe called for cake flour, which I didn't have on hand, so I *stupidly* subbed in all-purpose. The batter, which called for egg whites (instead of the normal whole eggs,) turned out heavy and thick; I think this cupcake will be more muffin than cake-like. My bad.
The recipe can found at the Baking Sisters site; if you'd like to see all the other beautiful cupcakes, look here!
