Thank you for being my guinea pig and taking the first bite. Don't be alarmed by my baking skills okay?
P.S. K said they were delicious.
It started innocently enough. Doesn't it always?
I didn't have a whisk but I figured hey, a fork is almost the same thing.
I mixed in hot, melted butter followed by cold milk and heavy cream. Well...the warm butter seized up forming a rice-soup/oatmeal looking mixture. NBD.
I made a mess because the mixing bowl was a tad too small. Oh and I forgot to make the fudge sauce. I assumed it was just to decorate the cupcakes. Oops! Always read through the whole recipe before starting...lesson learned.
I contemplated stirring in some Hershey's syrup but instead I put the cupcake batter on hold while I whipped up some fudge sauce with my classy double boiler.
They look like cupcakes! But I forgot to buy butter for the frosting so they cooled on the counter while I headed back to the store.
My peanut butter buttercream frosting looks delicious right?
It's pretty amazing what 2 tablespoons of milk will do to a lumpy dry mess.
It's robot arms were reaching out begging to be licked.
I punched a hole in the middle of each cupcake and filled it up with the frosting just in case the frosting on top wasn't enough for a sugar coma.
The cupcakes looked gorgeous but a bit naked.
So I gave them a shower of warm fudge sauce.
Verdict: A lot more work than cupcakes from a box with frosting from a can but sooo yummy. But...the cupcake (while moist and airy) is really just an edible plate for the peanut butter cream frosting.
Seriously...the frosting is the most delicious thing I've ever tasted. Ever.
