Last night was not perfection for me, I decided to be adventurous and make candied lemon slices for the fist time to dress up the cupcakes, and it was a disaster. I set up the sugar and water and let it start boiling, placed my sliced lemon slices in the pan and guess what I got a burnt sticky mess. It was terrible, my whole kitchen smelled like burnt lemons. Then after I had scooped all my batter into the pans and was about to place them in the oven, I looked over and guess what I say…the damn egg whites. I had totally forgot to put them in the cake, so I had to scrape everything out of the pan and remix it.
The only thing that came out with no problems was the Swiss Buttercream….oh lovely Swiss Buttercream how I love thee. That is the best F-ING Frosting EVER! It’s so smooth and creamy and reminds me of ice cream, and is basically heaven in a bowl. If you have never tried this route before, I highly recommend it, as you will never go back to that crappy powder sugar frosting ever again.
It was so late and I was tired and ready to be done, so the cupcakes didn’t quite come out like I had planned. I took few pictures with the kiss-ass camera the BF bought me a few months back, which I am told everyday I never use. (yes, I am a bad GF)
Hopefully with time I can master my photography skills and become as AWESOME as Little Miss Baker….check out her blog here.
