Mini Cupcakes for the Office

I was in a baking mood again this past weekend, and I decided to try out a recipe that I found in one of Martha Stewart's magazines. Looked like an easy vanilla cupcake recipe. It was my supervisor's birthday, and I thought what better occasion to bring cupcakes to the office than to celebrate a birthday? I went with a simple decoratation — mint green frosting with piped-on pink flowers.

The cakes were a teensy bit dry, but they weren't too bad. I have yet to find a perfect vanilla cupcake recipe. These came out pretty, though! I like the fact that the cakes turned out quite uniform, with nice curved tops that sprung back when I pressed on 'em.

Hi Yuzu-san,

Your stuff is as cute and as tasty as usual, but I guess that's sort of the point. I don't know how anyone can bear to eat it. I just want to big those cupcakes a big hug, and I'm a guy.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the encouragement, Chubbypanda. :) It's nice when a guy can admit his appreciation for cute little foods. Haha!

Oh, baking is so much fun, Madeline. Well, it can be a bit of a pain as well, mostly when things don't come out as pretty as you'd like. But it's fun playing around with sweet ingredients in the kitchen. ^_^
