So after finally getting the right tip to pipe cupcakes the way I imagine them, I gave myself another go at another batch tonight.

These cupcakes will go to work tomorrow – themed in the WYD08 colours to celebrate surviving the ordeal.

The cats decided they couldn’t help themselves (again) by breaking through my well-prepared barriers and nomming 2 cupcakes off the counter while they were cooling (again). I decided to play their game and iced their 2 cupcakes and left them in their bowls to nom. All they really did was lick the icing off. But I feel like the winner in any case.

AND! I finally remembered to try out one of the cupcake trees I was given for my 30th last month. Didn’t think much of them, but after putting these babies on the mini-tree, I’ve changed my mind.

  4. Hey- they look absolutely perfect and I adore the kitteh having a go! Is the icing made with berries or red colouring? You are very industrious making these- I achieved the cleaning up and then went out! I still think of these cakes as patty cakes or muffins, depending on the ingredients- just can’t get into the yank terminology!

  5. @kel, if you want 4 dozen, i’m glad you’ve given me plenty of notice. you’ll pay for me to hand deliver, yes? ;o)

    @grumba – they are SO patty cakes! you’ll be pleased to know the papers i bought were listed as patty, and so was the recipe – but i’m a tart for popular terminology ;o)
