MSC: Chai Tea Mini Cupcakes

Hello Sweet Readers! This month's Martha Stewart cupcake is the Chai Tea mini cupcake from the book. As you all know by now, I am a big frosting fan. Do you see these? Just a glaze. The cupcakes were flavored well; I liked the spices used that mimicked Chai Tea. However, even undercooking them per the instructions, some were too dry and even with the glaze were a tad lack-luster. Others gave them better reviews, but that's just frosting-loving me. As my husband says, "cupcakes are mere frosting conduits". This is not always the case for me, but it's generally true!

Hope you are having a great week so far!

Spring is Poppin' Up Good Things!

 Happy Spring, Sweet Readers! I wanted to share my latest (in what has unfortunately become a rare experience these days) baking adventure. You have seen these here many many times in many forms, but I just loved the color of these little cupcake truffles (AKA cake pops). They are red velvet with some yummy vanilla cream cheese frosting. I just love the way the pink and purple go so well with the jewel tone sprinkles. They make me smile. Hope they do the same for you!
