Shower cupcakes

27 May

all 4 cupcakes 030213In an effort to make these all easier to find, I’ll list here all the links to the recipes for the cupcakes I made for my bridal shower. I didn’t realize how crazy I was until I started to make my third or fourth frosting. They were a definite hit. I know you aren’t supposed to do much at all for your own shower, but I love to bake and everyone raved about my cupcakes, so I think they let it slide. I also couldn’t see spending the money when I could use the time to work on some recipes. Much thanks to my fiance and his lab for being my taste testers as I made several variations of the cakes and frostings the week before the shower so when 30 ladies at them, I knew I was giving them something good.

The biggest hits were the peanut butter and caramel frosting because they seemed a little more luxurious. I’ve had to resist making more and more of the chocolate peanut butter cupcakes just for myself.
