Decided to make up a batch for us since 1) finished my cardiovascular final last nite (yay) 2) the yankees kicked the crap out of the sox (even after a rain delay) 3) it's mother's day tomorrow and I have great kids. Life is good.
Tried a new icing and although it was tasty, it's not my fav, you can see the butter seems to be melting out (not too bad for these "sprinklesque" cupcakes as it kinda looks like gold flecks in the icing but it's too soft for piping really). I may have not waited long enough for the parts to cool before mixing. Oh well, live and learn.
