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!
