So yesterday I was in Emeryville, CA. They have this super cute bakery there--it's called the teacake bakeshop. I was inspired by the super cuteness (but didn't want to spend $4 for a single cupcake), so I baked some cupcakes of my own!
Here are a few that managed to survive long enough to get pictures taken:
They are my second cupcake attempt with the new frosting tips I just got, and the second thing I've baked in my new oven (new to me, old in general: I just moved.) The recipe I found for the frosting is divine--I love cream cheese frosting and this stuff is so fluffy and good. The recipe makes enough to frost two dozen cupcakes and then feed a third world country for a few months. Next time I think I'll make half a batch. Here it is: It's near the bottom of the page.
