a cupcake that… well… is quite literally heavenly. (no pun intended on the easter season…)
so. in celebration of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus…we present to you —
a free cupcake friday recipe!!!!!!!
our love for cupcakes began a year ago this month. our church has an annual christmas meal and last year in an effort to be more economical we ditched the “happy birthday jesus” cake and decided to try out cupcakes. they were a huge hit. and so with our original white and original chocolate, “cupcake friday” came to life.
this year’s meal is on sunday. so instead of a new flavor today, we’ve spent the day baking over 200 white and chocolate cakes.
this is the first cupcake we ever blogged about. it was awesome then. a batch didn’t even last two days around here.
so… today we decided to revisit this amazing creation, and with a few tweaks, we have reached flavor heaven!
three decadent layers: strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla. topped with a swirled ice cream frosting. and it…. is…. so…. good.
CUPCAKE FRIDAY TIP: to have a two tone swirled frosting, load the bag a few spoonfuls at a time carefully placing one color on the right side and the other color on the left side. evenly squeeze the frosting out as you ice the cupcake, so the color looks split as you swirl it onto the cake.
