Peanut Butter frosting counts as dinner right?

I’ve been wanting to make a peanut butter/chocolate cupcake for a while now. Every time that I think “This is the day!!” I find all these delicious recipes and get overwhelmed and decide on something totally different. Like my favorite strawberry lemonade ones. But there was a special request the other day and who am I to say no???

The request was actually for a cupcake with a peanut butter cup inside. So I had my inspiration there and found the recipe here! Not going to lie…I was skeptical since the recipe calls for mayonnaise. But I’m a brave enough person to trust that it would turn out ok and give it a whirl. And really, it makes sense–mayo is ultimately oil and eggs.

This frosting was so great too! It tasted just like the inside of a peanut butter cup. um…amazing.

Mayo? I'm really trusting you here, internet.

Happy Polar Bear Day!

February 27th is Polar Bear Day!  In honor and celebration of these amazingly cute bears, we of course made cupcakes!  Click here to learn more about polar bears and ways that you too can celebrate and help protect these animals.

For the cupcakes:  we decided on Devils Food mini cupcakes with our favorite whipped frosting.  Then we used all kind of delicious chocolate and coconut candies to make their cute little faces and paws.  AND we even found tiny tiny marshmallows for the ears!  I promise those will be used with a LOT of different things.  These cupcakes were kid approved earlier this afternoon, rest assured!
