Cupcakes for Everyone!

Hubby and I were visiting family while on our big Midwest road trip this summer and we spent a couple days with “the kids” (aka my younger siblings). My little sister loves to bake. She’s been baking for at least two years and she’s only 12. So when we hang out, we like to bake together. I had just gotten my new cupcake cookbook – Crazy About Cupcakes – and was eager to try another recipe. The first recipe I made from the book (Spiced cupcakes) only made 12 and we wanted about 3-4 dozen cupcakes.

We decided to pick 2 different recipes and double each one, thinking we’d end up with ~4 dozen cupcakes. Well, each of the 2 recipes we chose happened to make about 20 cupcakes so we ended up with around 80! Needless to say, we had cupcakes for everyone! We chose to make peanut butter cupcakes with chocolate frosting and cookies-n-cream cupcakes!

We cheated and used store bought chocolate whipped icing for the peanut butter cupcakes and used this recipe to make the frosting for the cookies-n-cream cupcakes. We crushed up some Oreos and mixed them in as well.

    Yum, those sound terrific! I really need to get myself moving and make some coconut cupcakes or cake! Everytime I see some my stomach jumps and strts growling. I like the idea of adding ice cream.
