National Vanilla Cupcake Day

Today is National Vanilla Cupcake Day. Aren't you glad to know that? In celebration, I made French Vanilla cupcakes (Duncan Hines instead of from scratch), and topped them with MaryKaye's Caramel Frosting (from the CakeCentral website). This is a cooked frosting, and it develops a crust very quickly, so I recommend adding a little bit more milk during the final mixing. Next time, I think I'll make it just thin enough to pour, and let it spread by itself.

December 15th is National Lemon Cupcake Day. I think I'll take a pass on that one. The only lemon dessert that appeals to me around the holidays is my Mama's lemon pie.

Hi T., thanks for stopping by. Yes, cherry pie is my favorite. But I think maybe we need to make some fudge next time I'm over there, or perhaps our traditional Christmas candy.
