Let me just preface by saying, these cupcakes are bound to rock your world. Really, they are SO GOOD. You don’t even need the icing, but damn with the icing and it’s game overrrr. They’re heavenly.
However, you ever hear that saying that goes, “if at first you don’t succeed, try again”? That was me with these cupcakes. The first time I tried them, my family told me they looked like dog sh*t. Not kidding. And to be honest, it stung a tad, but they really did look awful. And they tasted pretty awful, too, the first two times I made them. The texture was all wrong, and something was just missing.
All that to say, that’s how all great things are born – trial and error, and more trial, and taste testing…. and then more trials. And finally, you succeed, and it’s DAMN GLORIOUS. I might even go so far as to say, for my next birthday I’d take these cupcakes over a three tiered cake. But you’ll just have to decide for yourself. 🙂 I mean, who says we can’t have both cake and cupcakes on our birthdays?!
If you made this recipe, I’d love to see it! Let me know in the comments and tag me on IG at @simply_unbeetable 🙂
