Simply Scrumptious Snickerdoodle Cupcakes!
Brought to you by the letter "S."
Ha ha - Sesame Street, anyone?
Guess what my favorite part about a Snickerdoodle is?
(Which, oddly, begins with a "c," but sounds like a "s." Let's not confuse the kiddos, Ernie.)
I love, love, love cinnamon!
A sprinkle here, a sprinkle there...
I kid you not, I go through cinnamon the most out of all spices
(that, and garlic - on the opposite end of the spice spectrum.....--.AHH! More "s's"!!! I cannot stop!).
If you are a fellow cinnamon lover, how can you go wrong with Snickerdoodles?
And, Snickerdoodle + Cake = Eermergerdddd? (omg)
This was my first "go-around" with Snickerdoodle Cupcakes and I use a recipe from the blog, Momadvice.
I followed her directions
exactly mostly and it was tasty.
*The Cook's Notes: The frosting was mega-sweet with tons o' cinnamon. So, I added a dab of sour cream to help balance the mega-sweetness. Next time, I'll reduce the amount of cinnamon in the frosting to 2 tsp and reduce the amount of powdered sugar/add sour cream (?). However, the cake itself wasn't overly sweet, so, the sweet frosting wasn't an overkill of sweet - remember, adapt to how you like your frosting.
Overall - good cupcake.
Check out my SWEET cupcake carrier!!!
I *love* it!
Present from my Granny for Christmas.
It kind of looks like a UFO, but I don't care - it is the perfect cake/cupcake carrier!
If you're interested., this can be purchased at Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Why is it awesome?
Just a few brief bullet-points...
1) The top collapses for regular, shorter cakes (and storage purposes)
2) The cupcake holder itself also collapses and can be removed from the carrier.
3) It has a handy-dandy handle for easy carrying and secure snap-lid
