Friday Food – Homemade Cupcakes

I am quite proud to say that with the lovely help of Melissa and her man-candy James, I made the most delicious homemade, from scratch cupcakes. Okay, maybe not more delicious than my favourite cupcake shop in town, but still very delicious!

The idea to make cupcakes actually stemmed from Melissa wanting cupcakes from said store, but they’re closed today. We were going to hang out anyway, mostly so I could meet the mystery man, so I suggested we make cupcakes of our own. I first suggested just buying a box of mix, but my mind was changed and I found a super easy recipe online here.

And so we baked! Mel and I tackled the batter while we left James in charge of the icing. Go go teamwork! The cupcakes actually turned out really well.

Now for a photo essay of our shenanigans:

Getting it all ready to go in the oven, and being a dork as usual.

Oh lookit that! They’re not even burnt!

So there you have it! We didn’t burn the cupcakes and they actually tasted really good! So happy Friday Food and merry Weekend everyone! I’ll be taking in the UFC fights tomorrow night!

What are YOUR plans for the weekend? And which do you prefer – vanilla or chocolate cupcakes?

Friday Food – CUPCAKES!!!

So, I just have to share with everyone the awesomeness that is Sweet Spot Cupcakes, just so ya’ll will be jealous of me when I fall into the best sugar-induced coma ever.

From top to bottom are: Bubblegum, Chocolate Cherry and Triple Treat (strawberry icing FTW!)

Okay, NOW you can have a good weekend!
