Yes, _real_ cupcakes.

I saw a package of foil muffin/cupcake tins and paper cups at the grocery store two trips ago and thought, oooh, that could be fun. We also picked up a variety of sprinkles, confectioner's sugar (because we were out, which was a little mysterious, but I think that was one of the things that I left in Albany at Christmas and never replaced). Last night, I used the yellow cake recipe from Beth Kidder (with my usual oil/egg emulsification replacement for the cream margarine and sugar together) along with her Chocolate Frosting I. I had a little trouble getting the frosting right, but eventually made it work with the assistance of the immersion blender (I don't even know if we have a handheld electric mixer. Presumably we do. But I have no idea where it might be).


I also had one this morning. Extra yum. There are 5 left, since the "makes 12" recipe only produced 9. Not sure what happened there.

FWIW, I don't recall ever having eaten a cupcake before. We never bought the ones from the store, and I'm allergic to the stuff in them anyway. Presumably I had one at some point as a child, but I have no memory of them. My mom made layer cakes, not cupcakes.
