Berry Vanilla Cupcakes

All lined up.


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...
Naked and Lonely.


...which I topped with smooth strawberry buttercream in pastel pink and sprinkles, shavings or mini domes of white chocolate.
Abducted...


...Glorified

...and then Murdered!


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. :)

The Birthday Gift.

Hello abster... pwede pahingi naman ng isa? siksik ba yung cupcake? ayaw ko ng mahangin na cupkeyk! natry mo na ba cupcake ng dunkin' donuts? sarap din! crispy/crunchy yung dome top niya.

Abster said...

Hey Choi!

Yup, siksik siya pero hindi dense nor heavy. Flavor is light, and without the frosting, I'm sure any person can wolf down two-three in a sitting. With the frosting, it becomes a bit sweeter, cuter and much nicer though... :)

If you prefer crispy, crunchy wiht a dome top, maybe you're referring to a MUFFIN? I make those too! :D
