Happy Birthday!!

We were going for a pub crawl to celebrate Hubby’s college roommate’s birthday. I offered to bring cupcakes. He loves coffee flavored things, so I had quite a few options when I flipped through Crazy about Cupcakes. I decided on the Carmel Mocha cupcakes.

As usual, when I start baking, I get really excited and tend to bake way too much. Since I wanted to make the Carmel Mocha cupcakes “full-dairy” for the birthday boy, I wanted to make some cupcakes that I would be able to eat. I decided to use some strawberry preserves that we had paired with French Vanilla cupcakes. When I make two batches, I tend to make one from scratch and one from a box mix.

Everyone said the Carmel Mocha cupcakes were great, and I loved the strawberry filled cupcakes. Overall it was a baking success!

    What a great idea for using up bananas…something different from the normal old banana bread! Thanks for posting!

    What a neat recipe! I’ve got some bananas at home that are about to turn brown . . . they may just end up in these bars . . .
