Guess who's back???
Just guess. Seriously. Do it.
I thought maybe I should write in my little blog again since it is a special occasion. Well two actually. The first being the very first Martha Stewart Cupcake Club entry! That's right. I finally joined a blog community and an awesome one at that (naturally). Basically the sitch is we'll be baking a recipe from Martha Stewart Cupcakes on the 15th of each month. Betty from Eat My Cupcake is the genius behind this fabulous group so make sure to pay her blog a visit!
The second special occasion is my birthday! August 15th. My birthday. The day of my birth. Birth-Day. Feliz Cumpleanos. Ok you get the idea.
You can imagine my joy when Martha's Chocolate Salted-Caramel Cupcakes were chosen for MSC this month since the due date happened to fall on my birthday. Thus, these little babies are doubling as my birthday cake this year!
And what do ya know? I happen to have a little crush on salted caramel at the moment.
P.S. Please don't be too jealous of the super high quality pictures...*cough cough*
I halved the recipe and ended up with exactly 12 regular sized cupcakes. I also halved the frosting and caramel filling and had the perfect amount! I love the combination of salty and sweet. I will say that these are pretty rich so it's best to embark on this eating adventure with the buddy system in full effect.
What's that you say? You'd like to see some more photos? Okay, okay...
Mmmm.....look at that shine.
Check out the stylish zebra cupcake liners. Trendy cupcakes.
Like ducks in a row
It's unnerving. Look how clean her work area is. If I were Martha, this is how my book cover photo would look:
And with that said. It's time for me to go to bed! Happy Birthday to me and happy baking to you!
