Oh, Baking...

We meet again!

Damn my obsession with watch the Food Network ... and on this day in particular, Damn the show Cupcake Wars. They make it look so easy - cupcakes with jalapenos? No problem. Cupcakes with bacon? No problem. Cupcakes with tobacco? EW but it was done. This got my creative juices flowing, I wanted to do something exciting. I saw an Elvis Cupcakes, and all sorts of other creations, but my sweet husband reminded me that I am not a Cupcake Wars Professional and I should keep it simple. So I did.

I found a simple Vanilla, Vanilla Cupcake Recipe on Martha Stewart  .

Yes, from scratch... no box for me this go around!

Lookin good so far!

Since I was told I would only be able to do a simple cuppycake, I spiced them up with candy toppings: Snickers, Butterfinger, Twix, Oreo Candy Bar and Reese's... yum!

Could this be success?

In case you're wondering what hubby is doing during baking date night... here you go...

I even made from scratch frosting - it was yums! At least I had one thing right for sure!

Finished Masterpieces... now the question is do they taste good?

I got hubby approval! Woot Woot!

I feel like I can officially say that I have cupcakes under my belt - now maybe I can get crazy with flavors... Lemon Cupcake with Raspberry filling/frosting?! Quite possibly my next attempt... YAYAYAYAYAYAYA - Baking Success!
