My favorite letters are P, B, and J
I realize I hadn’t posted about the super-deeelish cupcakes I made for Marco’s 2nd birthday party – and I think this should be remedied immediately. I’d wanted to make a dessert that Marco would love, and that would be appropriate for kids and grown-ups. Who doesn’t love Peanut Butter and Jelly?! If you don’t love this perfect flavor combination, well…let’s just say you might want to rethink your life choices.
I started with a very moist white cake – imagine dry bread with your PB & J – no bueno, am I right? So the cake had to be perfect. Eggs and milk are the secret here, folks.
Hollow out some room for that tasty strawberry jam (I prefer Strawberry preserves, but this is harder to pipe)
Ohmigosh it took forever.
Tim almost tackled me so he could eat this out of the mixing bowl.
But I managed to get the butter cream onto the cake.
results: so good I wanted to squeal for joy, and everyone at the party seemed to agree with me, especially the birthday boy, who devoured his cupcake in mere moments!
