We have a new girl in the office where I live. I wanted to welcome her, so I made cupcakes. Hey, it’s what I do. 🙂
Remember that cherry extract I got a few weeks ago? Yeah, it rocks in the plain white cake mix. I used 2 teaspoons. Also, because it’s Autumn and I wanted to play a little – I’ve been in a mood, not sure why – I added some food coloring. McCormick has these Fall Colors that are really nice. I used 10 drops of the burgundy in this batch.
They looked okay going in, and the kids said the batter tasted good. But I still kept my fingers crossed anyway.
And they turned out okay! Whew!
I added 2 drops of regular yellow food coloring to plain white frosting and mixed it up right in the little tub. I was going for an ivory look. I thought that might have more of an Autumn feel than stark white.
And of course, I had to use the Autumn cupcake liners and sprinkles I picked up recently, too. 🙂
I let the kids have one, testing purposes you know! They said they turned out awesome, yay!
But wouldn’t you know, when I took the cupcakes over to the office to meet the new girl and say hello, it was her day off! *facepalm*
Oh well. The other ladies said they might leave her some, lol.
