to celebrate my bf's birthday this friday, I made a favorite but sinful treat...magnolia bakery's vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting. The combination of butter and sugar is like crack. (I'm assuming based on research. For the record, I have never smoked crack, even though I use the expression often for emphasis) In order to burn off one of these lovelies, you need to run 4 10-minute miles. If you don't have time to run, you should just slather that frosting on your thighs since that is where it will take up residence. Come to think of it, you would probably get a great unhealthy tan that way and you would smell amazing. I digress...the cupcakes were so lovely, I think I might have impressed Martha...I made regular size and mini's, and honestly I don't think that I will make the full size every again...the baby cupcakes were soooooo good and the perfect size to satisfy. I've posted the recipe for anyone who's interested. Bon appetit!
