Day 322: CUPCAKES!!!!

Posted by annagrace under Days 301-365

So this isn’t super creative since I just used a boxed cake and icing, but I thought I’d share it anyways!

Tomorrow is my last day at my job, so I decided to make cupcakes to show my appreciation for those who have been so helpful! I just used the boxed Duncan Hines Butter Golden cake batter. I couldn’t decide on which icing I wanted to use, so I bought two of the new Duncan Hines Frosting Creations plain bases and the mixes to make cotton candy (which my roommate loves and she was having kind of a bad day) and caramel frosting!

I decided to make them a little more pretty than just slapping the icing on by putting it in zip-lock bags, cutting the tips and making my own piping bags! I started with the cotton candy… and they were a big mess! I cut the tip a little too big, so I had some issues with it being lumpy. Some of them look fine, but there’s a couple that aren’t too hot. :/

Then I did the caramel, which turned out little bit better because I cut the tip more. You can see one of themĀ in the pic above, and here are the rest!

Here’s the best one, I think and an instagram photo for good measure!

They are so yummy! I think people at work will love them!
