Don’t get it twisted. Cupcakes are about the icing. There is a much better icing to cake ratio in cupcakes. These german chocolate goodies came from a cake mix but the icing I made myself. The cute little letters are those sugar things you can get at the craft store. Since my honey is working I made the icing pink for me. Te he he (sorry honey!) I am taking a cake decorating class in March and I can’t wait.
Easy Peasey Cream Cheese Icing
1 8 oz package cream cheese
1 stick (half cup) softened butter
16 oz powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Cream together the softened cream cheese and butter. Add the vanilla. Gradually beat in the powdered sugar.
I hope you enjoy Valentine’s Day! I mean that even you aren’t spending it with your honey, don’t have a honey or don’t want one. (I HATE the assumption that every woman wants to be with a guy and is miserable if that isn’t the case. Urgh.)
