Cupcake Celebration

Hello again!

Last night was the Girl Scout's Bridging night. Made these cupcakes for the sharing table. Wish we could have made the event but Meredith wasn't well again and couldn't be at school. Next year Laura bridges and we will be there for her!

Coffee, Nutmeg and Cinnamon Cupcakes. UMMMMM my favorite.

Recipe for the Coffee, Nutmeg and Cinnamon Cupcakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake cupcakes for 18-20 minutes.

    Wet
  • 6 tsp Butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 C Brown sugar
  • 2 medium Eggs
  • 5 TBSP strong black coffee
  • 1/2 C Whipping cream

    Dry
  • 2 C Regular flour
  • 3 tsp Baking powder

Chocolate Cupcake Sliders

These chocolate cupcakes sliders are frosted with either strawberry, blueberry or plain vanilla frosting. I think mini-cupcakes are the best. Pop them into your mouth, in all one bite they are gone. Sometimes the larger cupcakes are harder to eat.
