The last few days I have made a lot of cupcakes. Saturday I started these but ended the day with a migraine so I finished them on Sunday. We had the church youth and their leaders over Sunday evening and I had many taste testers. The over all vote was good. I enjoyed them also but the flavor was a little too subtle for me. Next time I'll use more lemon juice in the cake (Yes, I altered the recipe a little by substituting the juice of one lemon for some of the water. Some one please tell me, what are you supposed to do with a lemon after you've removed the zest?) and more concentrate in the frosting. They were light and fruity. That's a big plus in my book. I'm thinking of making them again for Easter dinner. But I'm still looking around.
Today I made two batches of Banana cupcakes (I baked them for about 15-18 minutes, in case you're wondering.) for a birthday surprise for Kade's teacher, Miss K. She was pleasantly surprised and the cupcakes were a hit, of course. All the students made a frosting mustache in the eating process. It got a little loud as they vied for my attention showing off their 'stache but it was a party after all.
Kade wanted to take his iPod to school so he could get a video of his teacher when I came in with the cupcakes. Since iPods aren't allowed in school this'll have to suffice.
Happy Birthday to Miss K! She is definitely one of our favorite teachers. (She's also a blog reader!)
Today is also our nephew's birthday. Happy Birthday, Jr.!
