Whee! Doing a stunt!

Hello, I blog!

I write with no particular theme in mind, because I am random like that.

Freshly baked goodies!

Well, it’s no secret by now that I’m crazy over cupcakes.

Been baking them since five months ago, and slowly perfecting them – first working on the taste, then the texture and finally, the shape. I guess I’ve more or less mastered the art of ‘removing the cupcakes from the oven at the correct time so that they don’t collapse‘ since I obtain cupcakes with nicely rounded surfaces almost 100% of the time these days.

Decided to bake a batch of cupcakes for my close friends who are still in the midst of their exams, as a way to cheer them on. Because this batch was special, I decided to go one step further and attempted making some frosting.

A nice fluffy mixture of dark chocolate and melted butter did the trick just fine. Heck to all those elaborate frosting recipes I’ve seen lurking around the internet. Mine tastes just as good, if not better. Rich and creamy. Mmmmm.

And … TA-DAAH!

Cupcakes!

These are Oreo cookies and cream cupcakes topped with dark chocolate butter frosting and rainbow sprinkles, less then five minutes after they were completed.

I’ve placed them in the refrigerator, and the frosting has hardened to form a crisp chocolate shell. Now, that is what I call yummy!

    What is it with cupcakes these days, I see people posting about them everywhere on the Internet lately. Not that it’s a problem, I love cupcakes too, it’s just that I don’t have any in the house at the moment and I don’t have anything to make batter either to bake my own. So instead I have to drool over cupcake photos online while others are enjoying them.

    Life is so unfair …. ;)
