Since last Tuesday's cake decorating class I have wanted another project. I also didn't want to have stuff in the house that I was bound to eat. Saturday our friends invited us over for a BBQ and asked us to bring potato salad and....desert. Can you see where I'm going with this?
The first thing out of my mouth was CUPCAKES!!! Saturday morning after my bike ride we went to breakfast at Cracker Barrel. I love that restaurant/store. Then we came back and I immediately started working on the potato salad and then the cupcakes.
I made the cake mix from scratch from a recipe which I will share on Wednesday. It was so yummy. I had never used it before but it is definitely a keeper.
I let the cupcakes cool and continued to work on the potato salad. Once the salad was done and the cupcakes were cooled down I made the icing that we will be using in our class on Tuesday. I used the almond flavoring because I had never used it before. It was delicious.
I decided to put a thin layer of icing on some of the cupcakes so I could make designs on top of that like it is in the book I have.
I'm pretty sure that over time I will take all the the Wilton classes. I have been studying their website looking for recipes and ideas for my husband's upcoming birthday.
Well my daughters want to go to the park. Talk to ya later.
