The Beginning

For Chrismukkah in 2010 I got as a gift what i would call a cupcake starter kit- cute cupcake liners, some icing bags and icing tips, and the bakers field guide to cupcakes

The book has recipes in the front for all the basic stuff- a variety of different types of cupcakes as well as frosting. It then proceeds through different decorating ideas that correspond to holidays and events throughout the year.

I made my first batch of cupcakes from this book with my best friend Lena and it was love at first bite.

(Confectioners sugar ganache)

 These cupcakes loosely correspond to the new years eve cupcakes in the book but we weren't skilled enough to pipe champagne glass shapes onto the ganache and use the sprinkles as the bubbles so we just adorned the whole cupcake.
