I don't know about you, but my favorite kind of Sunday is when the football games are on (occupying my ever-bored husband), and I get lots of things done!
THat was the kind of Sunday I had yesterday. Besides getting a decent amount of laundry done (blah), I finally tried a recipe for Lemon Cream Cheese Cupcakes that I have been dying to try for months. I finally figured out that no one was going to make them for me and leave them on my door step, so I dove in. Remember, I am NOT a good baker. But was determined to give it a real go!
So in the early am (setting those clocks back always screws me up) my daughter and I made our way to the supermarket for the ingredients. I never have bakers stuff on-hand around here.
Here is the recipe on my facebook fan page: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=138137012875453&topic=595
Here is how they turned out:
The recipe calls for a whole box (16oz) of powdered sugar for the frosting, but I only did about three quarters of the package and upped the cream cheese a bit because I don't like frosting to be too sickly sweet. They came out perfect (in my estimation). As a matter of fact, I am enjoying one right now as I write this.
