Jin In The Kitchen: YELLOW CUPCAKES.

After the tragedy that were my Vanilla Cupcakes, I decided to take another shot at making cupcakes. I was originally planning on making Smore Cupcakes, but I thought that was perhaps a little too advanced for the girl who is making cupcakes only for the second time...ever...and just my fourth time baking. So it was back to the easy section of the Martha Stewart website, where I found a simple recipe for Yellow Cupcakes. With Lil Sis on deck as my assistant, we gathered our ingredients and got to work...

I know this might sound stupid...but I didn't know there was a big difference with regular butter and stick butter...the last time I used regular butter which I guess had an effect on the end result...and to top it off, it was fresh out the fridge and not room temperature...who knew all those little things mattered...don't laugh at me...


Who knew my 9 year old sister knew how to perfectly crack an egg...she surprises me everyday...

Finally it started to look more creamy...

I was so excited when it looked like this, and not a watery mess like the last time...

...then the time came to dispense the batter...

At this point, I knew they were going to be perfection...and once we saw them
rising in the oven, it was hard to contain our excitement...

...and when the time was up...


There was lots of jumping...
high fiving...
huging...
screaming...
foolishness...

Anyway...

Time to decorate...

I decided to skip that whole thing and just pile the frosting on. Originally I was going to also make the frosting from scratch, but we didn't have enough confectioners sugar in the pantry...
and I wasn't going to go buy any...so I used some Betty Crocker Butter Cream Frosting...


...let's add some sprinkles...

YELLOW CUPCAKES by Jin and Jay...



They taste awesome! I wish I could share with everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend!

PS: I know I haven't done any wedding recaps in a while, but I'm trying to wait until I get my professional photos back that I haven't picked out as yet...because I'm a slacker. As soon as I get them, I'll proceed to the ceremony which is where I left off...

PSS: Have you ever seen the episode of The Martha Stewart Show
when Snoop Dogg was on? Hilarious!
