ABC - Emergency Blender Cupcakes


ABC - Emergency Blender Cupcakes (page 72, The Weekend Baker) 

I made these cupcakes really early, but somehow got caught up with work and forgot to upload photos from my camera and post this early. :p  

I made 6 batches of these and baked into mini cupcake cases.

Not quite sure if the 'damage' was done by the blender blade or not while scraping the sides of the blender
i was worried that the missing piece might be in the mixture!

So, i strained the mixture and found nothing. I was so relieved..because i found nothing. :) So the spatula has already been damaged earlier just that I have not noticed it earlier. 

The cupcakes were so easy to make and they were delicious as well!  However, i made changes to the chocolate frosting, because no matter how long i waited, it never hardened as it said it would in the book, so i figured it must be because of our hotter weather. So i tweaked it until it could actually hold it's shape and can be piped and yet looked so glossy. One of the best frosting i have made...not is it glossy, it stayed so well and stable in our room temperature, it is so chocolatey too!  Not sure if i can repeat this though..hahahaha.. since i just eyeballed everything and threw in whatever i had that i thought could work. LOL! 




Verdict:  Best chocolate cupcakes i've made. Not only is it very chocolately, it is very moist, dense and tender crumbs.

They're beautiful, Faithy! I love your little pink cups.

They look great Faithy! I love those paper cups that you used. I never made this icing when I made my cupcakes and I think, given our very hot climate, I'd experience the same problems as you had with this....wish you would remember the adjustments that you made! :-)

That's a whole lot of cupcakes! These cupcakes are so good, and the frosting is so delicious. My frosting took about an hour to get to the consistency that is suitable for swirls. Your cupcakes looks pretty! Have a nice day!

I just love those pretty spotty cups!

oops and meant to say, silicon spatulas aren't as tough as you think they're going to be, one of mine ripped quite quick.
