Ginger invited me over to her place on Sunday to help make these. She’s getting married next year, and trying out cupcake recipes, and this was the inaugural cupcake.
Man- when Ginger does cupcakes, she is hardcore! I usually pick one type of special icing, or a fancy cake batter with a simple glaze. G’s cupcakes have salted caramel piped inside, and then a caramel swirled buttercream with chocolate shavings and caramel drizzle. That is one thing I love about this girl. Where other nutrition students declare their undying love for healthy food, she and I are stuffing cupcakes into our mouths with a mutual “no judgement” agreement.
Unfortunately, this buttercream recipe was a new one to the both of us, but I honestly thought it would work in theory. The icing was not a success texturally, but that definitely did not stop us from eating it by the spoonful when no one else was looking. Better luck next time!
