Blue Moon, you left me standing alone

You may want to listen to this while browsing my pictures. Now that you have the proper ambiance let’s get into the details of how these pretty cupcakes are made. Today was a brewery tour for graduating seniors. Thankfully I fall into that category so I got to enjoy several beers this afternoon. Before this excursion I met up with two friends to make some alcohol-inspired cupcakes in honor of the trip. I used this recipe.


Here are the butter and sugar getting creamed


Then we added the eggs, vanilla, food coloring, and eggs.


This is the disgusting milk and beer mixture the recipe requested.


Once the beer mixture and the flour were mixed in, the batter finally had a beer color.


I filled up the cupcake liners carefully. Disregard the wine opener in the corner.


After 15 minutes the cupcakes were done. Notice how perfectly domed they are.


Here is Steph making the sugar mixture for the frosting.


Rachel whipped the eggs to make soft peaks.


I cut up the sugared orange slices.


The desired outcome.


This cupcake has the lightest orange taste and is excellent.


ALLLLL the cupcakes!


Week 10 SURPRISE Cupcakes!


Since I gained an hour from good ol’ daylight savings time I figured I should do something productive at 8am in the morning. It was too early to go do work so I decided I would bake. It being the week before I had 2 projects due and 2 homework assignments due and oh,yes, a research abstract due there wasn’t time to get fancy. To still make something new, I decided to mix a regular chocolate cupcake with my peanut butter filling. Such a good idea….


These are the ingredients that made this happen minus the oil. I had forgotten to include that in the photo. Also, yes I am inadvertently endorsing products. Yay Wegmans and the Pillsbury doughboy.

My Peanut Butter Filling

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3-1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar

I used my “magic” spoon to mix this. It’s so awesome with its blue sparkles.

Two worlds are about to collide. (also this is a funny video I suggest watching


Time to fill the cupcakes!

Since I always like to try as many new things as possible when I bake. I also made a coffee chocolate chip cupcake. I added some instant coffee to the batter. So here are the two cupcakes all frosted.


This is what the peanut butter filled cupcake looks like inside.

And why not include more photos. No one really wants to read about food. It’s much better to eat it or look at it.

These have a nice hint of coffee. I used about a TBS of the instant grounds then added a little water.
