I started with the cupcakes which was an easy and quick recipe. So easy I think I already memorized it. They baked up beautifully, so full and round and even!! I was already a fan and man that batter tasted like heaven! The frosting recipe I got from another baking blog called How to Eat a Cupcake. I have been reading this blog for years and Cassie is full of good information. She just opened up her own bakery, so congrats to her! This recipe was easy with just 4 ingredients: sugar, egg whites, butter, and vanilla. It took a while to make this frosting but the results were amazing!!! I am a new convert to cooked frostings :) Since it is almost Halloween and since I have an ungodly amount of Halloween sprinkles these naturally became Halloween themed. I'll be sending these with Javier to work tomorrow because I have already eaten two!
Put the sugar and egg whites in a double boiler.
Then transfer to a mixer and beat until fluffy soft peaks form.
Add the butter a few tbsp. at a time and then the vanilla until it starts to get thick, this is where the time and patience comes in handy.
