B is for Baby

NO not my baby!

B is for Britt who is due any day now with her first Baby and Friday was her last day at work so we wanted to say Bye and we love you!

Sarah and I made these cute cupcakes from Hello Cupcake! a super fun cookbook about how to create the cutest cupcakes ever!!! You must click the link and check some of them out on Amazon. These are the most basic cupcakes in the book but we didn't have a lot of time and wanted something simple.

To make these you need your favorite cupcake recipe, a can of frosting (yes, I said can) and 1/4 cup or so of white chocolate chips.

All you do is while the cupcakes are cooling color the frosting anyway you like and then melt it a little in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds at a time until it is smooth and syrup like (not too hot though). Then dip the top of each cupcake and "wallah" the tops look smooth and like you really know what you are doing!!! Then melt the white chocolate and pour it into a zip lock bag. Snip a small piece of one corner off and make little squiggles and designs to your hearts content.

They were yummy and the canned frosting which I am not a fan of ended up tasting pretty good once we melted it and added the white chocolate!


  1. They look great. Cant wait to try some of the other cupcakes in that book.

  2. Too cute! I know Hannah will want to give these a try. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Yummy! What a nice thing for you two to do for Brit!
