Easter Cupcakes

10 Apr

As mentioned here, I made these delicious cupcakes for Easter

and boy, are they yummy!

I didn’t use the edible paper grass because, well, sprinkles are easier.  Don’t the sprinkles make it look like they’re sitting on a grass lawn though?

Let’s take a closer look:

Oh yeah, that’s the stuff.  They taste wonderful and I followed the recipe to the letter.  Except for the icing.  For some reason the icing was waaay too runny using the recipe.  Maybe because I didn’t sift the powdered sugar? Or perhaps because I brought the cream cheese to room temperature?  Or because the cream cheese was the lower fat variety?  I have no idea.  I had to add a lot more powdered sugar to it to get it to be the right consistency.  Oh well.  Icing is pretty much pure sugar anyway.  I now have a bunch of left over icing, filling, and cake bits I’m not sure what to do with, but the possibilities are all delicious (including the obvious “just eat it” option).

I hope you all had a very Happy Easter!
