With my continuous search for the quintessential butter cake, I have come across the several worse of the lot, but once in a while, I stumble upon a finalist. My weekends, as I can not say enough, are spent watching food--watching, playing, eating, nibbling, cooking and baking food. The latter is my number one pasttime.
As you will see below, I have had too much time this past weekend spent on thinking about food.
These are the light vanilla cupcakes I baked...
...which I topped with smooth strawberry buttercream in pastel pink and sprinkles, shavings or mini domes of white chocolate.
The flavors are sweet and subtle yet present, just like the pastel color combination, which I deem most appropriate for the 5th birthday of the little girl I gave a box of these to. :)
