Happy Weekend all! I hope you are having a great weekend like we are. Luckily the snow stayed away (they were predicting a lot, at least by this year's standards) and we were able to get our meet out of the way this morning. So tonight we needed to make some cupcakes for Cupcake Saturday! Well, hopefully we aren't disappointing. With Mardi Gras going on down in Louisiana, we thought this would be a great weekend to make some Mardi Gras cupcakes. We did some research on different kinds and couldn't quite decide which ones to make. We made some King Cake cupcakes (the pictures will be posted later) and some Mardi Gras colored ones. We topped these off with an Irish Cream buttercream frosting.
Ready to be piped into muffin cups, right out of the oven, and cooled and decorated.
(Talk about some kitchen counters in desperate need of remodeling and updating!)
