Remember THIS post that I made a couple months ago about my sudden want to make cupcakes?
Well, I had sent my mom the link to Bake It Pretty asking for cupcake supplies for Christmas. I did not receive Bake It Pretty supplies, but I did however receive a nice little selection of items to help me get started. My gifts included 5 different types of patterned paper cups, decorations, a cake decorator starter kit with 4 food colourings, pastry bags, and 6 different icing tips, and REAL VANILLA! I was determined to start right away, and it just so happened that I had a pot luck to attend on the 27th. So I promptly found a recipe to try out, and along with the icing I whipped up, here is my first attempt at making ‘fancy’ cupcakes! The consistency of my icing didn’t turn out how I wanted, BUT they still look pretty cool and they tasted phenomenal. So.. it wasn’t a complete bust!
