So….if you judge solely on my previous post…St. Pat’s was great! No, my absence can just be explained by life happening and me being out of the state for a time. But, these are some amazing cupcakes we make a few weeks ago!
We got the idea from the back of a cake mix…for real. They have good ideas back there! So we had this random lemon cake mix sitting around and the box suggesting putting a strawberry icing on it! Um, no need to twist my arm there! We made a strawberry buttercream frosting (made with fresh strawberry puree….omg). And they were so amazing. Basically, they tasted like strawberry lemonade. Usually, I’ll only have one “ugly” cupcake for myself, but this time, I just kept them all at home and made poor food decisions for a while. Totally worth it.
Also, my birthday was a few weeks ago. I’m a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, so my best friends made me hunny bee cupcakes! The cake was an almond cake with a honey buttercream frosting. And an adorable jelly bean bumble bee with almond-sliver wings. They were super cute AND delicious! Bonus!
