Making Cupcakes

I am loving my new KitchenAid mixer that my husband bought me for Christmas.  Before this, I still used a twenty-plus year-old hand mixer that my aunt had given me when I went to university.  It worked great for many, many recipes, but it was time to move on.

I used it to make these cupcakes, chocolate with cream cheese icing, just because.

Yum!

The Icing on the (Cup)Cake

I am a terrible cook.

I forget to plan meals until it’s supper time. I forget ingredients. I’ve even been known to ruin Kraft Dinner.

Maybe it’s because the end product is so sweet (I’d rather eat a cookie than a carrot any day), but I’d rather bake.

Plus, I get to decorate.

That’s why cupcakes are so much fun.
