Adventures in Cupcaking
Posted by Krissie J
Monday I was determined to flex my baking muscles and try out a recipe posted earlier that day from the ever-so-lovely Courtney. The task at hand: Orange Cream Soda Pop Cupcakes. I only made a few tweaks to her recipe. I used 1 cup of liquid egg whites instead of the egg/egg sub mixture. I also used only 3 cups of confectioners’ sugar instead of the 4-5. On with the pics!
I was able to make 2 dozen normal sized cupcakes and about 14 mini cupcakes. I saved 4 of the mini ones after having Scott taste one. He approved! I packed the babies up in one of the new boxes I ordered from BRPBoxShop and brought them into work yesterday.
Can you tell I like bright colors? The cupcakes were a smash at work. One guy told me he normally is not a cupcake person and ate 3 of them. Someone else said they had 3 and asked today if I had more. And one other person had multiples. Say what? I’d like to give a special thanks to Courtney for having the most amazing recipes to share with the blogosphere. She has a ton more I am dying to try, so future reviews/tests (my coworkers thank you, C)! I’d also like to point out my decorating skills are nowhere near hers right now; this was my first time using the piping utensils.
They went perfectly with my morning coffee. And they really do taste like an orange creamsicle! ;)
