Last week in anticipation for teh day of *love* I had a little cupcake gathering. It was so fun! Okay, not that I need to make (or EAT) cupcakes right now -isn't swimsuit season right around the corner??- but they are darling and SO fun to make! I caved.
Here is a little 'taste' of what we came up with:
This is a little deceiving... I wanted to make a beautiful, out of this world good cupcake and while I do think it turned out pretty, it tasted like grainy poop! Who except for Martha Stewart and Bakerella can make meringue frosting over a double broiler and not have it turn out grainy?
Round two of the hi-hat cupcake. Well, hi-hat turned lo-hat... I tried a different recipe and it tasted great, but did not form stiff peaks! Anyone have a good suggestion for me on a no-fail meringue icing recipe?? :)
