So I started my Cupcake Project last night. I decided (with a little guidance from Anthony) to do the first chapter of the book straight through, in order. That way I learn all the techniques I need in order to do all the fun/specialty designs in time for the holidays.
So this first attempt is: CORN ON THE COB!!! Check it out!
That is 3 cupcakes – vanilla – with yellow frosting, Lemon/Buttered Popcorn Jelly Belly’s, black and white decorative sugar (to look like salt & Pepper) and a starburst to look like butter. How cool is that???
It was fun to make! And Anthony was a great photographer. Plus he makes a great taste tester. And I learned new baking techniques, which is always fun, such as using a piping bag to evenly pour the batter, evenly frosting the cupcake, or making a starburst as pliable as play dough. This is going to be a great baking experience. Check out the rest of the photos.
