To get you ramped up for this event, I want to begin by reminding you of a few cupcake posts from the past 6 months.
This peanut butter frosting recipe has been a huge success at work and with my husband who does not usually eat sweets (and I have to tell you, he said the cupcakes I made this last weekend are my best ever...recipe to come this month). Get the recipe for peanut butter frosting here.
A gumpaste bow is easily made for a small version like I did for these mini cakes as a cupcake topper. Get the tutorial here.
The first time I created my Almond Joy Cake recipe, I made cupcakes instead of a large cake. My family gobbled them up at our family reunion, and I knew I had a hit (and could use the recipe for Barb's birthday cake). Get the recipe here.
I posted this tutorial with 10 tips for baking beautiful, delicious cakes. This month, I will be updating some of the tips for cupcakes (as some only apply to large cakes).
If you have never experimented with different types of food coloring, take a peek at this post for information about different types of food coloring, and what media they work with best.
This zucchini cake recipe makes delicious cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I made them last year for my cheerleading team, and they still talk about them. Get the recipe here.
Are you as excited as I am? Feel free to grab a button to let everyone know you are celebrating with us, and if you are interested in posting, I have a couple days still open for guest posts (email me at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Tomorrow Christina from It's a Keeper will be here to share a delicious recipe with you. I drooled all over the keyboard when she emailed me her post; you won't want to miss it!
