Old Fashioned White Cupcakes

It seems like only yesterday that I was writing a blog about our daughter returning to school after the summer of 2011 that was jam packed with fun, friends and activities galore. That was so last year. Did I blink? The fast forward button of my life must be jammed. Life is spinning by at an alarming rate. Yes, school started AGAIN this week. Really? On top of all that hormonal emotion is the fact that our daughter began her freshman year in high school.  Four more years! Is that all that is left!?

She enjoyed a fabulous first day of school!

We decided the best revenge was to create mother daughter baking memories the day before school officially began.

The best comfort food for both of us is a cupcake from the Babycakes Cupcake Maker. We selected Classical White Cupcakes with Decadent Fudge Frosting.  These morsels of sweetness were the salve that we needed to begin the school year on a high note.

This recipe is from our newest cookbook that has just been released, The Big Book of Babycakes Cupcake Maker Recipes. You can order it now on Amazon. It will also be available very soon at the Babycakes Shop or a a retailer near you.

If you prepare these for your loved ones, would you consider leaving a comment and letting me know what you think? It would be such a treat to hear from you!



  1. I love the picture of your happy child. This recipe is great because of that almond extract! It gives the cupcakes an extraordinary flavor. But. . . what’s your favorite chocolate icing recipe!? Maybe I needed to look further into your blog to find it?

      Andrea, Thanks so much for the kind comments. The icing recipe is from our first Babycakes cupcake maker cookbook. It is the chocolate fudge icing on page 92.
      I hope you enjoy these treats!
