Cupcake toppers for the boss and how Pranormal Activity The Marked Ones made my cupcakes taste AMAZING
Birthday cupcakes for the best boss in the world are complete (he doesn't like frosting, weird I know). And I had the most fun making the cupcake toppers. I really can't stop using the flower image from the morning meadow stamp set (stamping up). I'm sort of addicted to it, especially in the cherry cobbler ink. The check background paper is a left over wrapper from a See's candy box from Christmas. I knew it would come in handy one day. And the blue paper is just inking up a piece of card stock with Island indigo ink. He also freaked out over how good the cupcakes turned out. Now he only likes box cake mix (again I know WEIRD, but it's easy and makes him happy). I do have to admit they were abnormally light, and fluffy for just being Pillsbury Devil's Food Moist Supreme which I've made a hundred times before. So thinking about how I made them I realized I might have actually done something to help them out. First off I used Egg Beaters to make them. And when I took them out of the fridge I shook the carton vigorously, and for a long time before pouring. You see I was watching a really scary movie, Paranormal Activity The marked Ones. My unbelievably sweet boyfriend had bought it for me on the way home for work as a special mid week treat. So because I was watching the movie so intently I was not really paying attention to what I was doing. After putting all the ingredients together I then whisked the batter with a wire whisk instead of mixer so I could sit in front of the TV and watch the movie. I probably over mixed and put a lot of air into the batter, hence the light and fluffy. Also, instead of using the full amount of oil I used half the amount and the rest water (my boss is VERY health conscience). So I think this might be the cause for all the rave reviews. I'll have to remember this for next time.
Welcome to my little corner of the internet. This is my space where I can showcase my obsession with paper crafting, and a few products I've cooked up along the way. Thank you so much for stopping by.
