Saturday was Tess’s Superhero Birthday Party. (Her actual birthday is today! Happy Birthday Tess!!) Kirsten asked if I could bring the cupcakes (or…I asked if I could bring the cupcakes…you know…it was one of those conversations…’I don’t have cupcakes yet’…’I can bring some!!!’….’okay, that would be great!’) and so I did!
I used the recipe for Killer Chocolate Layer Cake (found in this cookbook)…which calls for soda AND lots of sugar. For the soda I used some root beer that Dave had made the night before (he has a Soda Stream…which he uses almost daily…mostly just to make seltzer though)…and the cupcakes were sweet…but VERRRRY good. :)
Then I swirled on some pink and purple frosting and called it a done deal.
Well…except for some clip art I used to decorate the whole thing.
THEN it was a done deal. :) And everyone seemed to like them…especially the ones I saved for my resident taste-testers!
