I'm what most people would call easily amused. How so, you ask? I'm that person. You know the one. The one who is the first to laugh at jokes. I laugh at little things that others don't find funny. Facial expressions that I find amusing, certain tones, awkward moments... I just like to laugh and have such a dry sense of humor. Which is why I love goodies that have cute faces. When I make goodies like my Cookie Monster cupcakes, chick cake pops, or even my jack-o-lantern cookies, I can't help but giggle because well....they just look like adorable little armies of cuteness!!! Gah, so cute! So it comes as so surprise that when I saw Bakerella's panda mini cupcakes, I knew I'd have to recreate these little guys. I mean, come on. They just REEK of cuteness. REEK of it. So of course I had to recreate them for my little sister's 16th birthday. I used a box of cake mix for the cupcakes (end of the semester=laziness), but I did use Bakerella's recipe for easy buttercream frosting, which you can find here. Ok seriously guys, who knew simple buttercream could TOTALLY hit the spot?? Buttercream I've made in the past was purely for decorating class purposes...and we were required to use Crisco/lard instead of butter for some reason. And that didn't even compare in taste to butter. I don't...I can't...Seriously?? HOW did I not even put together that butter=better buttercream. BUTTER IS KING. Ok, maybe it's queen. We all know BACON is the real ruler in foodie land. Anyway! Cupcakes! Here's mine!
Bwahaha! I can't even help myself, they're just funny to look at. And they tasted GOOD (Butter in buttercream. My new mantra). And that poor panda with the candle...doesn't even know what hit him. Just look at his face, poor guy.
And finally, I just have to show off my little spokesmodels!! They're just perfect! These are my daycare girls and they just LOVED these cupcakes! Look at them working those cupcakes! Thanks for being the cutest advertisement I've ever had, girls!!
