Bake-n-Blog


Staci at Staci Edwards Design had a great idea when she came across the yummy website Ming Makes Cupcakes.

"I say we each sign up for a cupcake to bake from Ming Makes Cupcakes and blog about our baking experience, and better yet how delicious they are, on August 19th".

I signed up to make Red Velvet Cupcakes and the pictures above show how it went. Pretty well! I admit I didn't make the same icing as the recipe because I didn't have Maple flavouring but it is still white and the cupcakes tasted super yummy! The recipe only makes about 12 which is nice. It's a manageable amount to eat without feeling too guilty, haha! I had a little bit of fun and added a mini peanut butter cup that I added icing and a mini m&m to as well as cherry blasters. I got the idea for the mini cupcakes from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. So cute!

You can go to Staci's blog to see who else signed up for the Bake-n-Blog and see how their cupcake adventures turned out!
