Happy New Year to you all!
Happy Birthday to me! (happy birthday to Sir Sportsalot in 2 days)
Happy 2nd Blogaversary! And this is my 300th post.
I woke up this morning with an email from Betty Crocker highlighting this recipe. With all the celebrations going on, it was a must that I make these!! Besides, I love pink. Look at that pretty soft pink color.....perfect for celebrating all sorts of things, don't you think?
When I checked my snail mail this afternoon....I had a Betty Crocker Calendar waiting for me...and the cover of the calendar has these cupcakes on them. It was another sign that these beauties were meant for me! And the recipe called for alcohol. How could I not?!
I'm going to share the link with you that has the recipe....and then tell you how I adjusted the icing because in the reviews, there were a few complaints about it. You know...it really helps to read the reviews of a recipe. Allows you to anticipate a possible issue and plan ahead to made adjustments. :)
For the icing, I increased the butter to 1 cup and I decreased the powdered sugar to 3 cups. Worked wonderfully.
I just piped it on in a messy mass of "ribbons"....and dressed them in pearls.
Thank you all for sharing and caring and being here and there! May your year be blessed with health, happiness, good food and great friends and family!
