My author friend, Rachelle Christensen, has a new series (Wedding Planner Mysteries) coming out in July. The first book is called Diamond Rings are Deadly Things. (I have and ARC–but haven’t read it yet. My daughter kifed it from my desk so I have to wait my turn. :)) Each chapter will feature a recipe, craft, or wedding tip. She asked me to try out and blog four of the recipes featured in her book which has been so fun. All of the chapter tutorials can be found on Mashed Potatoes and Crafts. (I’ve been blogging a recipe once a month over there for almost two years.)
So here is the Chapter 9 Tutorial: Berry-licious Cupcakes with Magic Glitter
Mix cupcake batter as directed on a box of white cake mix and fill cupcake wrappers with batter. Push one large blackberry or raspberry into the center of each cupcake, making sure that the batter covers the berry, then follow box instructions for baking. When cupcakes have cooled, use a frosting bag to fill centers with whipped cream and then pipe additional whipped cream on the top of each cupcake. Sprinkle with edible glitter.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started.
These scoops are helpful but not necessary. The scoop on the left is for regular size muffins–you won’t need it for this recipe. The middle scoop is for mini muffins. You will be using it and the scoop on the right (used for cookies).
