Sorry this edition is late, but I was out of town and my parents do not have a computer. So a little late, but I think worth it. My husband took this batch into work and had a completely unbiased party taste them, and the verdict was: DELICIOUS!!!
I wanted a cupcake that had a simple flavor to remind me of the clean crisp winter air of January. I decided on a vanilla bean cupcake with vanilla mascarpone frosting. I made both regular and mini sizes this month. I also frosted them two ways....a piping bag for a light touch and an ice cream scoop to resemble a snow ball. Both of these versions could easily be topped with coconut or clear sugar crystals for a more winter appearance.
Next month's cupcake is in the works....any requests???? I am also working with a talented blogger who makes decorative cupcake sleeves. I am hoping it will be spectacular! Have a blessed started to the new year :o)
Linking to these wonderful parties.
