So since I've posted about cutting back on meat and eating a bit more healthy, I'm happy to report that I've taken in the meat parade at Brazilian Grill, and I've posted about apple pies and now, cupcakes. What. The. Hell. I know. So let's cut the guilt and just get to the cupcakes pictured above, shall we? We shall. And let's also just clear it up and say, these weren't for me. Nope, these were for one of my most favoritist of peoples, our 11-year-old neighbor. And her birthday party. At the bowling alley. With pizza. And friends. And grandma. And I bowled a 53. Suck it. I need a little practice in the bowling arena, obviously. But it was fun and I smiled the whole time and the girls told me about Hanna Montana and Rianna and I don't know who else. Good times, peeps. Good times.
These cupcakes were made with my new favorite recipe from the book Southern Cakes, and the recipe is called Helen Hudson Whiting's Celestial Chocolate Cake. The frosting is a la Amy Sedaris, and is her buttercream frosting. And the pink color? No Red #4 here. Nope. That there is beet juice. All natural red food coloring. That counterbalances all the butter and sugar, right? Right.
