Another Cupcake Heard From

No falling sprinkles today but one good cupcake leads to another.  My sister said cupcakes aren’t her favorite as the frosting is disproportionate to the amount of cake involved but many people are crazy for cupcakes.  I have seen a line around the corner on Bleecker Street at the Magnolia Bakery, many times.

A couple of weeks ago on a Monday, I went to a friend’s house and these chocolate cupcakes were the dessert.  Here is the recipe for Chocolate Heaven with Chocolate Buttercream.

I’m on a team for the Biggest Loser at work and we weigh in every Monday morning.  Good thing I had the rest of the week to try to make up for the indulgence.

I looked through the cookbook where J got the recipe from and everything sounded enticing.  Old fashioned baking with plenty of real ingredients. From Savannah Georgia, the  Back in the Day Bakery  is the name of the cookbook.  J had heard the owners, Cheryl and Griffith Day,  featured on the radio show Splendid Table.    Their specialty?  Vintage Desserts!

  1. I would stand in line for a cupcake like the one in your photo, no doubt about it. Disproportionate icing? I hope so!

  2. oh my, I would gladly stand right in line behind ChgoJohn and would have a tall frosted glass of milk ready and waiting – Perhaps a late night delivery service would be a good idea too!

    But, one just isn’t enough. I’d eat three.

  6. I like cupcakes…but I dislike frosting them. Takes too long! 🙂

  7. My favorite cupcake ‘trick’ is twisting off the bottom half and inverting it onto the top – making a cake/frosting “sandwich”. Maybe your sister would like cupcakes better that way?
