As promised, here is a quick peek of our cupcake fun we had today.
The girls had fun taking turns with the hand mixer. Since I'm a box cake mix kind of girl, making the cake was easy as 1, 2 & 3. I didn't have 3 eggs, only 2 but I'm here to report, the cake still tasted great with only 2 eggs. In fact, it wasn't crumbly. I think I may like it better that way.
I made 24 full size and 12 mini cupcakes. The girls each had one large cupcake to decorate and 6 mini cup cakes. Between licking the icing from the knife and back into the bowl... I made sure to separate their cupcakes, so as not to pass cooties to one another, or better yet, us.
We're going to get-together tonight with some fellow folks from church and the girls wanted to bring over a dessert for their friends. So, I was in charge of decorating those cupcakes.
After reading about a large icing tip on Heather, over at Pursuing More than Purls, I decided to ask the lady at the grocery store bakery where I could buy a large icing tip. She directed me to a really neat cake store in the next town. I found a large star tip there and I was excited to try it out. So, I did.
