for last weekend's couples wedding shower,
Chrislyn and i baked "signature" cupcakes for the bride and groom.
if you read my blog last week you know that i planned to make Aimee's
i tried converting grams to cups, then i thought...
"hey, Lynne...get out your trusty little scale!"
so i baked in grams all the way. for those of you that are seasoned
metric cooks, you must be laughing at me a bit right now...especially
"les filles internationaux". i must admit i loved it! i felt quite proud of myself.
there is a whole new world of recipes out there for me, and my "échelles métriques" to conquer!
since this was my first attempt at this recipe, i was a bit nervous as the
cakes were baking. i turned on the oven light and said a few kitchen prayers
as i placed them in the oven. i visited the illuminated cakes as they were baking,
and said another prayer or two or three...
twenty - two minutes later...voila!
( just the way Aimee said they were supposed to look!)
my lovely, and yummy tribute to Anna, ready to go!
Chrislyn's tribute to TY was
beer and peanuts!
she made Guinness Stout chocolate cupcakes with a peanut butter frosting.
(move over Reese's peanut butter cups!)
still being the proud mom that i am, i brought one home and
"put it on a pedestal" for a quick little "shot, to share" with you!
