Thanks to a tutorial I found on Pinterest, I now know how to bake those beautiful cupcakes you see all over the internet and in baking books/magazines - the ones that raise up out of the liners with their pretty little dome shape and look amazing when you ice them. You know what I'm talking about? This might not be newsworthy for some of you baking pros out there, but this "pin" rocked. my. world.
butter cream recipe and added about 1/2 a bottle of Smucker's Caramel Sunday Syrup. Since the caramel syrup thinned it out, I had to add a little extra powdered sugar and even a little flour to that the icing didn't run off of the cupcakes. I piped the icing on with my Martha Stewart reusable pastry bag and sprinkled crushed up Heath on top before the icing set.
Everyone was impressed with my baking skills. And the cherry on top? I didn't even know until we showed up to dinner, but apparently Heath bars are the bday boys favorite candy. What are the odds??
Try these out the next time you are pressed for time and looking to add a gourmet, personal touch to even the simplest dessert! And don't forget the little trick to get them to bake perfectly, you won't regret it! ;)
