making this frosting, and me waiting for the smooth, rich, and
buttery crystals on the spoon that had been used for stirring.
Heaven, I tell you! Well I whipped up some of this luscious frosting
and then I needed something to frost!
Oh, you might think I should have baked first and then made the
frosting. But, by now you know me- and well, this isn't the first
time that I have been known to put the cart before the horse...
For the sake of sensibility, this recipe will begin with the cupcakes!
I have been in the mood to experiment with cake mixes, this is one
of those recipes and it really is quite delightful and simple.
I wanted to incorporate the fruits of the season into this recipe.
Fresh strawberries are in the batter along with coconut. I topped
the cupcakes with fresh blueberries from our local Farmers
Market and spruced them up with white sprinkles.
Some tips for this recipe would be-gently fold those strawberries in.
We don't want them mushed up in the batter-we want to bite into
one of them-yummy!
I like my frosting a little runny so that I can dip my cupcakes into
the frosting, by doing this it helps to achieve a smooth look.
Before the frosting sets, I add the blueberries and sprinkles.
Refrigerator and serve chilled with a glass of milk and enjoy the
last days of Summer!
