On Saturday, Hannah and I spent the whole day in the kitchen. We made the cutest cupcakes for Easter. I bought the cupcake set on sale at Sur la Table. That store is such a temptation.
We made the basic Sandra Lee cake recipe (basically a vanilla cake mix with vanilla pudding added). Once it was mixed up, we divided the batter into 3 bowls. We colored each bowl of batter with a different color of food coloring.
We spooned the batter into the cupcake liners and swirled the colors together with a toothpick.
They turned out so cute!
I got out my frosting gun and we frosted, sprinkled and decorated the cupcakes. When I frost cupcakes, I use 2 containers of store bought frosting, and I add 4 cups powdered sugar, 4 tbs of butter, and mile until I get the right consistancy.
