Nothing is as delightful as a hot cuppa tea and a yummy chocolate cupcake with pink buttercream icing to perk me up since we are now back in the deep freeze here in southern Ontario. We still have snow and ice and a cold wind to contend with when we step outside our door.............
that's why i'm spending as much time as possible inside the house baking and reading and doing a ton of organizing. I sent 2 large bags of clothes (some of the items date back to the eighties-whoa!) to the Goodwill, which gave our closets some breathing space. Ahhhhhhh.
I added a few drops of red food coloring to this white icing to give it the faintest pink hue. I made far to much buttercream and will have to refrigerate it and made a cake in a few days. There goes my waistline.
I love this vintage pink plate and it complements these cupcakes with their pretty red sprinkles. I can't wait to taste these babies.
Ohhhh, these were super duper yummylicious! The buttercream perfectly fluffy and sweet while the cupcake was slightly fudgey and dense.
Who cares about a waistline anyway, flowy, loose-fitting blouses are in for spring anyway!
