shirt dress and cupcakes!

so, this isn't a cupcake, but i took this picture for jess. :)

black and white cupcake. like the cookie, only a cupcake. very complicated with the two batters but ultimately rewarding.

these are the banana splits. black and white cake with vanilla frosting on top and banana pudding filling in the middle.

this is a vanity shot of an arnold palmer cupcake. tea & lemon in both the cake and the frosting.

mimosa cupcakes. orange cake soaked with champagne glaze. in the background: mimosas frosted with a mixed fruit mascarpone icing.

amaretto cupcakes. they weren't very amaretto, however, next time i'll use more of the flavoring.

amaretto cupcakes with raspberry cream filling inserted with new bismark tip.

cupcakes in the fridge. some have vanilla amaretto frosting; the others have raspberry frosting made from the leftover filling and added powdered sugar. the amaretto frosting was good, but it got too dry in the fridge.

glamour shot of one of the raspberry on raspberry cupcakes.

hope you enjoyed that random dress + cupcake post!

i'm so blissfully posting from my apartment. :) success!

hahhahaha...jessica, i hadn't thought about that in a loooong time. it made me laugh really a lot. :)

mom, dad, and anita - i can't wait to make cupcakes for you guys. i can't promise they will be any of these though. since i've started making these crazy complicated cupcakes, i haven't repeated a recipe once!

there are some that i want to do again though...tie dye are at the top of that list. :)

trresa said...

Definately tie dye! I was thinking that exactly! Cake and just can't be wrong!

Anita said...

And can I request some filling of sort???

Amanda said...

oh...if i fill tie-dye cupcakes, i'm pretty sure that it will have to be a mystery filling. :) it's just a trippy pairing!!!
