This week is our year end at work which in short means = busy. In years past it has also meant snacks. As of today we didn't have any snacks in our team - so I decided I would bring some in. I mentioned it to my friend and she also wanted to contribute with a baked good. Long story short - I sent out a survey to the team to find out the top two craved sweet treats. The winners? Brownies and Cupcakes.
I've been wanting to try piping frosting on cupcakes, so I jumped at the chance to make those. I baked the cupcakes as soon as I got home so they could cool and be frosted.
Then I made the frosting [Uh. I love cream cheese frosting!!], put it into piping bags and started frosting the cupcakes.
Rich took pictures of my first time frosting cupcakes with a piping bag. It was a far faster process than when I frosted the sugar cookies for my first craft.
Here is the finished product:
I filled the cupcake carrier with 24 cupcakes destined for the office. I thought they looked pretty good for my first try. Update: Another treat that disappeared! Yea!! These were gone by 9:40a.
Six bonus cupcakes didn't fit in the carrier, so Rich got some too! With these I got to experiment with the other reason I wanted to make cupcakes: filling them.
This also worked!! I already have plans for a next time...
