4th of July cupcakes

This year is half over, can you believe it. But the heat is on and it’s 111 today. Even though most fireworks are illegal, there is one city selling them and they are on every corner. So we turned the ovens off today and will celebrate with the rest of America and thank God for our country. We will also be eating cupcakes. If you didn’t order yours yet, you can still order them over the next 4 days for any parties you may be going to.

Here is a look at some of the ones we did.The first plate is Tye Dyed red, white and blue, with a white icing, and chocolate stars. The 2nd plate is Red Velvet with a blue icing and red heart, for our love for America and you the recipient. We also do a baked cheesecake in a jar and add blueberries and strawberries. Delish.

New Web Design completed on Easter

I am so excited to share my updated site with you. Even though I loved my old site, the designer quit and I was left with some things I couldn’t change myself on the site. But thankfully Jacqui from Wacky Jacquis designs came to my rescue.

She knew exactly what I wanted and was so easy to work with. She is very creative and quick which was a blessing. She also designed my new cards. I am updating everything on the site and business too. I am hoping by this summer I will have several things in place that I have been working on.

In the meantime, here are a few Easter order pictures including some Peeps. I have been a little slow updating my blog, but I will be doing so more often.

 

Easter Cake and Cupcakes

 

Some of my cupcakes are on my Palm Springs Cupcakes website. I will soon have these combined onto one site, but you can also visit that site. You can place orders through either site or by calling 855-222-4330. Most orders can be filled within 48 hours. All orders are baked upon order so that are fresh and delicious. Thank you for reading this post and I wish you a Very Happy Easter.  You can see more desserts on Twitter and Facebook.

Traditional Buttercream Frosting

There are many different recipes for buttercream frosting. I love frosting and could eat it straight out of the bowl. I especially like it on cupcakes and cakes, even cookies. We use a lot of swiss buttercream here at Candiland, but I wanted to share the traditional recipe made from butter and confectioners sugar.

 

Candiland Dessert Buttercream

Recipe include:

2 sticks of room temperature unsalted butter

5 cups of sifted confectioners sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste

1/4 cup of milk or heavy cream

1/4 ts salt

 

Directions:

Place the 2 sticks of room temperature butter in a mixing bowl or stand mixer

Beat with paddle attachment until creamy.

Add vanilla, (or any flavoring)

Start adding sifted confectioners sugar a little at a time.

Add salt

Continue to alternate cream with sugar.  Using cream verse milk will make it lighter and fluffier as its whipped

 

This should yield 18 cupcakes or frost an 6 – 8″ cake.
