I made cupcakes yesterday for this author event. Nancy (still blogless) was one of the writing tutor volunteers for the teens and she volunteered to provide refreshments for the author event --- that is, to cajole dozens of people to provide dozens of cupcakes.
I discovered a whole world of food bloggers -- no surprise -- and a whole world of cupcake bloggers, something I would never have guessed. I used this recipe for the cake, but didn't end up filling them with lemon curd. They had a nice crunchy sugary top which I didn't want to cut into. So I just dumped a lot of (store bought) lemon curd into the cream cheese frosting.
As my family doesn't really like cake, I haven't baked a cake in years. We have pies and cobblers, even for birthdays. Will I make cupcakes again? Perhaps, but do not expect a cupcake blog from me!
