I'm a little behind with posting the third cupcake in the Candy Cupcakes Series...Junior Mint Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Mint Frosting...suggested by Prissy Cook....Happy Late Birthday, Prissy Cook!! Work has been so crazy the past two weeks....it was all I could do to get them made! And,they were good...but not necessarily my favorite. That would be the Junior Mint one below! But, if you like peanuts, you will love it!
This is my son-in-law...Da-VEE...really his name is David and he's married to Shelley. They live in Durham and Da-VEE is gettng his Ph.D. from UNC....that rhymes...but he still loves the TERPS!
I know this sounds crazy...but I do love Junior Mints. I remember always getting them at the movies and then dumping the entire box in my coke! How can I be tell you this?? Then I would eat frozen Junior Mints for most of the movie! I can still remember how good they were! N-E-WAZ: This is how they looked when they came out of the oven....
And, my sous chef, Layla, was very nervous that she wasn't going to get any of the cupcakes!
The cupcake was vanilla with mini chocolate chips and coconut and small bites of Mounds Bar mixed in the batter. The frosting was vanilla mint with pieces of Mounds Bar on top. OMG! They were awesome.
Layla guarentees that every cupcake is good! Her motto is that she's never met a cupcake she didn't like!
Have a great week!
Rock on, CQ
Yes, it's true I am on a candy cupcake trip...this week's entry is the Baby Ruth Chocolate Cupcake with vanilla frosting topped with bits of frozen Baby Ruth bits! Whew!
This photo shows what the cupcakes looked like when they went into the oven.
This one is what they looked like when they came out....
And these are what they looked like when they were put in front of Layla!
Then, Nigel wanted to get into the show, too!
Any suggestions for this week's Candy Cupcake #3?? We're taking orders!
