As busy as last Saturday way, this Saturday was lazy. So lazy in fact that grocery shopping and Target did NOT happen. (However a spontaneous trip to office max, led to Stein Mart and Home Depot as well.)
That meant that Sunday morning, when I was up early once again, I trekked off to Target to get the weekly stash… you know gummi bears, starburst, snickers, oreos, skittles, laffy taffy. Between the children at home and the children at school, candy is my major purchase each week at Target. Anyway I also found a cake storage carrier on sale (Have been wanting one for so long!) and bought what I needed to get started on my cupcakes since I usually start them right after church.
When I got home I was feeling very productive and washed my clothes, and my sheets, and swept all while my cupcakes were baking. Well, I should have been a little less productive and a little more watchful of my cupcakes because they burnt. One pan may have been salvageable, but I was so frustrated with them at that point that they all went in the trash.
After church and grocery shopping I had a renewed desire to make these cupcakes work. I found them and their chocolate counterparts last week and knew they would be ones that I would make soon. Check out the recipe here, and maybe be slightly jealous that you don’t work at Cornerstone Prep or live at the 136, the location of these rich cupcakes.
A side note about the recipe: I found the marshmallow filling to be way to much. You could have at least halved the recipe and it would have been plenty. I also wished I had put more filling in each one, but it still would have been way too much!
Also, if you wonder why these cupcakes look cuter than mine usually do, its because I did not decorate them. Sam continues to find ways to prove that he is far more artistically talented than I will ever be!
