Its not rocket science people. Its cupcakes. Have fun with them!
Any boxed cake mix will do. Follow instructions on the back. For a more home made taste add chocolate chips, nuts or other small candy to batter.
Tip: fill cupcake wrappers up only 2/3 of the way. Cupcakes expand when they bake and you don't want them completely overflowing.
Line your tin
Cream cheese icing: In a food processor or in a bowl with an electric mixer cream 4 oz of unsalted butter and 8 oz of cream cheese. Add 2 cups of confectioners sugar, bit by bit until all the sugar is mixed in. Add 1 tsp of vanilla extract once all the other ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
You can ice with a spoon or spatula. I used icing tips.
Cut off the corner of a plastic baggie, insert icing tip into cut corner. Fill bag with icing. Twist bag until all icing has been forced to bottom. Ice as you please.
I like to use decorative candy pearls and colorful sugar
Happy Birthday Ericka! I hope you enjoy.
