We made James' Daddy some special birthday cupcakes. Of course James thought they should be Star Wars cupcakes and they should be chocolate.
I did most of the measuring and running around. James got to stand on his stool and smile prettily :)
Jim took this picture, so obviously he's on to us.
A good chef always tastes as he goes.
Yum. Cake batter. (But not too much.)
The cupcakes need to cool. Time to play for a bit.
Decorating. "This one is for Daddy."
I have these SW stencils. They didn't work so well on this sticky frosting. The stencil stuck to the frosting and didn't lift off well. I should have known. I'll use the stencils next time on a firmer frosting, like buttercream.
James prefers his cupcakes plain so we didn't decorate all of them.
Jim was a good sport and walked into the kitchen covering his eyes.
James is so proud of himself. Good work!
And mellow, fluffy and moist chocolate cupcakes with simple white frosting.
