Notebook Experiment: Can I Make Cupcakes From Scratch? ( Part 2)

Experiment: Can I make a cupcake from scratch (part two)?

Experiment Taken From: Notebook Entry 01.08.09

Materials Needed: Please see The Farm Chicks for the full instructions. I followed the instructions exactly. I also had a package of Twilight mini-buttons (found at Walmart) that I used to make cupcake toppers for my cupcakes.

Results: Remember this cupcake experiment that I did? Well, these cupcakes got a little makeover for a Twilight viewing party at my girlfriend’s house. And yes, a bunch of twenty and thirty-somethings got together to watch the Twilight movie with great excitement. I was not kidding when I said that we were super fans! Several of us from our book club got together to watch the movie and snack on fun foods.

I wanted to bring a fun and movie-inspired dish to the party. Lucky for me, Walmart sold these little mini Twilight pins that you could wear on your clothes or backpacks for $5. I took toothpicks and taped these miniature pins to toothpicks to make cute little cupcake toppers for our movie. It was a little tedious getting them to tape on and stay on, but I managed to get them all taped and inserted before our fun movie night.

I still think this is the perfect cupcake recipe and adore this frosting. These taste really good after they have been in the fridge for awhile because it is such a yummy and moist chocolate cake.

They could have whatever cupcakes they wanted, but this one is mine, all mine! Ah, reliving your teenage fantasies and crushes all over again! It truly is priceless!

Conclusion: Thanks to The Farm Chicks for a wonderful recipe that I use over and over again!
