Beside the fact of having a MAJOR chocolate attack,my first ganache, and that I have never made a cupcake with filling, what more excuses did I need to make these? So I saw them on MyBaking Addiction and thought how perfect!
( I'm pretty sure my mom would kill me if she knew I put a cupcake on her piano! lol )
So I spent my Saturday night ( haha I'm such a lame college student) making some cupcakes. I was fairly surprised at how easy they were to make. They weren't too bad tasting either! I'm not so sure they tasted exactly like a Hostess cupcake but they were awfully close. I have to admit I do prefer the fake (Hostess) stuff! Okay well I have lots of homework to do so Got to go. Hopefully I can find another day this week to bake!
Also, I can't wait to get a better camera haha!

Tart n' Sweet Black Cherry Cupcakes

I actually had a break from my homework and school today. Shocker I know! Calculus and now Physics...what happened to summer? Anyways, I decided what a day to bake right? Well I found a recipe on for some Strawberry Cupcakes. By the way...I love that blog! It's one of my favorites! I think she is great and always has the most scrumptious food!
So The cupcakes looked so good so I had to try...but when I got home I realized we had no strawberries :( I was so dissapointing but I had to improvise, so I took some cherries we had in the fridge, pureed them up, and crossed my fingers.
They were so awesome! The frosting was the best because it wasn't to sour and not too sweet. Just perfect. I'm sure the strawberries would have been better but it got my baking fix out of the way for a few days at least.
I let my dad " Certified Taste Tester" try these out and he seemed to love them. Usually it's just one bite for him..but I think the tartness of these hooked him enough to eat the whole thing.
Cupcakes (edited from the Sprinkles cupcake recipe)
Cherry Buttercream

1/2 cup of cherries(pited & food processed)
1 tsp vanilla

Cream butter, add vanilla and cherry puree, then add 1/2 cup powdered sugar at a time until light and fluffy
I'm thinking Blueberry Pancakes for my next endeavor...or maybe some Hostess inspired cupcakes...mmmm I'm making myself hungry
