So my friends and I had a Royal Wedding Viewing party this evening in celebration of Kate and Will's Wedding and I was in charge of the cupcakes! They're red velvet cupcakes (dyed blue instead of red to make them royal) filled with chocolate fudge and topped with cream cheese frosting. Everything was made from scratch and they were amazing! The cake and frosting recipe were from America's Test Kitchen Family baking book, and the fudge recipe was from this blog
that I can't find right now and I'm too tired to keep looking for. I'll post a link when I find the blog again. http://theflourishingfoodie.wordpress.com/
the only modification I did was i only used a third fo the chocolate the recipe calls for and 3 Tbsp of flour instead of 2.
Oh and the decorations are made from marshmallow fondant. Onto the pictures!
All of them on display on my awesome cupcake stand:

It was my first time using a piping bag to put the frosting on instead of just using a knife and I have to say I loved the way it looked. Well that's all let me know what you think.
