X-mas Red velvet cupcakes

My first attempt at Red Velvet Cupcakes with creamy vanilla frosting. The rvc weren't at all what I thought they would be, I'm not sure if this recipe was converted correctly as the cupcakes didn't look at all at what I have seen on the web. W

The frosting recipe did do it's job but wasn't my taste at all, I like sweet on my cakes or nothing at all. The cream was just not sweet enough.

We gave lots away and everyone seemed to like them though except DH and I (I guess we've just been tasting too many good ones so we're getting picky ....)

What kind of cupcake are you ?

I took a test at The Dozen Cupcakes Quiz (you can take the test by clicking on the link, let me know what kind of cupcake you are I'd love to know !)

And I'm a Copacabana Cupcake ....

"Pineapple vanilla cake, mango buttercream, rolled in coconut and topped with a pineapple wedge. Always in fashion!"

You are the life of the party, the belle of the ball... the frosting on the cupcake! You love to party, to socialize, and you are not afraid to make your own fun. People are drawn to your amiable nature and sense of humor, and you have never been known to badmouth a friend because you like everybody. The epitome of an optimist, you keep spirits up in dark times and your smile is infectious.

So what do you think ?

It's my party

And I wanted pink cupcakes (click on them if you want to see the pattern in the fondant) :D

And I've noticed that the baking & decorating cupcakes is almost as therapeutic as scrapbooking .....

Cupcakes for a sisters Hope

I love a good cause and last year I was so enthusiastic about this idea that Monique had I just had to help. So I offered to make cupcakes for her bakesale that she would be doing again this year. Unfortunately I decided this a bit late so I couldn't work as much ahead of time as I would have liked and I ended up only making 90 cupcakes .... But they turned out so cute and where selling really well (during the time I was there) so I hope I helped bring her profits up a bit for "A sisters Hope" and bring her a little closer to her goal of 1.500 euro's sponsor money !!

A work in progress

The finished result

Quite proud to be honest !!

ps. I just heard that Monique raised 1000 euro's with her bakesale !!!

Cupcake Workshop Results

I went to a workshop decorating cupcakes with my friend Martine and we learned so much !

Here's what we made, we had fun with icing and fondant (I have now idea what that is in English, it's not marzipan but made from sugar ...) ;

My favorite is the one with the grass, which one do you like ?

I was allways to jealous when I saw cute cupcakes on blogs, @ sis crops that I decided it was time to take some action. So after searching endlessly for tips on a fun forum with great girls I decided to take the plunge. This blog is dedicated to all the cupcakes experiments !
