dear merkenlots,I’m sorry I wrecked them for you by involving coffee. I apologize.
cat is sleeping beside me like a cutie right now
Made some cupcakes. Simple cupcakes. Martha Stewart’s one bowl chocolate cupcake to be exact. I’ve never made it before and saw it on a blog and they look pretty awesome. So I made them. Because I’m impulsive like that. I happened to have some buttermilk but no safflower oil so I just used vegetable oil. Things turned out swell, just swell. I made some espresso buttercream to go on top because I’ve been going through a chocolate/coffee phase lately.
It accidentally is the best buttercream I’ve ever made. It’s a canadian style buttercream, made with icing sugar and butter. And espresso powder. And water. That’s it. I just threw random amounts in and whipped it until it looked good. Oh so good. The cupcakes themselves have kind of a baking soda-y taste if you know what I mean, but they’re still pretty good. Really light and fluffy and chocolatey.
Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo these cupcakes rock my socks to the moon and back x3. I’m lazy and don’t want to type out the recipe so here’s a link to it riiiiiiiiiiiight here. Make it!
