Delicious cupcake

Good night guys,

It’s past midnight here, but I wanted to write this small post to share with you a delicious cupcake recipe, which I read on one of my favorite blogs: http://petit4chocolatier.wordpress.com/

this is the link to her recipe:

http://petit4chocolatier.wordpress.com/2012/12/01/silver-gold-sugar-crystal-gems-with-a-splash-of-blue-on-all-white-cupcakes/

I read it today, had a couple of things to do, wasn’t feeling too good (I’m sick), but had to try it! did not regret it, was delicious, hubby and I we LOVE it! you should give it a try too! 🙂 I didn’t have any gold or silver gems, so had to use the sprinkles I had on my pantry! 🙂 … (my blue homemade frosting doesn’t look blue in the pics but it’s blue, the light in the kitchen is not helping)

I won’t re-write the recipe for you here, please visit her blog, you will be glad you did! 🙂

I will only be sharing with you the pics I took of our attempt!  Enjoy! 🙂

    I am so not a cook – don’t have the patience. However, I enjoy good food – even more good desserts.
