I've never been much of a baker. I didn't really like doing it because I thought it took so dang long to make anything. Enter "Cake Boss." I kept watching it and I was like "I want to learn how to do that. Also, I want cake." Seeing as how there's only 2 of us in the house, I figured cupcakes would be better as I could take any left-overs into work. Only thing is, I had never made cupcakes before in my life. I'm 29. I know.
So here is my first batch- peppermint chocolate made from a mix kit I got for Christmas. Kind of rough.
My second batch from a mix I found for 84 cents. Hot chocolate flavored cupcakes with fluffy marshmallow frosting.
Third batch was combined as regular cupcakes and mini cupcakes. The cupcakes are banana chocolate (a twist using a mix and fresh bananas). The orange ones had vanilla frosting tinted orange.
Part 2 of chocolate banana- mini cupcakes to look like Valentine candies.
Tomorrow is my boss's last day at work so I made mini banana cupcakes that look like petite fours. I even made the batter from scratch!
I'm getting much better at making cupcakes! If anyone wants the recipes for the banana chocolate or banana, let me know.
