Jess I left you a comment. Your cuppies look so good. Sorry you didn't enjoy the icing. I love cream cheese so this recipe was my fav so far. icon_biggrin.gif

Wanted to share feedback from my "cupcake debut" at parent's night - Everyone LOVED the lemon cupcakes. I ended up using SMBC to frost them with, since it was really warm here, and I didn't want the cream cheese melting off of them. I posted a pic in my photos since I can't figure out how to post one directly into this message. (can anyone tell me how for future?)
Thanks

Thanks everyone icon_smile.gif Michelle104 - I found some paper I really liked to put on my cupcake stand, and used the colors from that. I LOVE printed paper and fabrics, so they naturally make it into my cookie, and now cupcake designs! Meemawfish - This was my first stab at fondant. I originally bought some premade Wilton fondant - and I have to say, it tasted disgusting. I got some guidance from some other CC'ers, and ended up making MMF. I used the recipe from this site -http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/Fondant.htm
One thing to note is that marshmallows used to be sold in 16 oz. bags, but I noticed that they are down to 10.5 oz now!! So I adjusted the recipe (with my husband's mathematical help icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the info SweetDreams. I am going to try my hand at modeling a figure of a lady in a swimming pool for my sister's 50th birthday cake. I was planning on trying MMF or either Michelle Fosters. I will let ya'll know how it turns out.

Here I thought I was being so observant!! I was at the grocery store today and decided to buy an extra bag of marshmallows to have on hand for the next time I want to make MMF... and I noticed that the minis come in 2 sizes. 16 oz and 10.5 oz... So, disregard what I said before (quoted below). I think I'm just paranoid because of how ice cream packaging keeps getting smaller. Sorry! icon_confused.gif icon_redface.gif

I just finished my lemon cuppies and they are divine! Just a little lemon flavor (it definitely tasted natural, not artificial thanks to using the lemon juice) and the cream cheese frosting is fabulous!! I wish the icing was not as runny, but it still holds up. I filled them up halfway with the first dozen and they didn't rise well like everyone else mentioned. So I filled them up more in the next batch (got only 1/2 dozen) and they filled to the top of the liner. This is definitely a keeper after my disaster with the carrot cuppies icon_mad.gif .

Can't wait for the next one!

I'm still getting notices but I think it's because you only get notices on the ones that you post on. icon_biggrin.gif

Ok y'all, sorry I didn't post on Friday like I had intended. I'm in the middle of a severe kidney stone attack. Almost ran off the road friday and have been 'medicated' ever since! Ugh. Anyway, here is the link to the new thread. I hope you guys like it. This whole process has been a ton of fun. What a great 'club'!

I finally got to make the lemon cuppies this weekend!! They were delish!! The only thing was that they were dry, but I think I may have cooked them too long, but everyone loved the flavor and the icing!! I will be making these again with absolutley no changes to the recipe!!

I bought that book a couple of weeks ago, too!! icon_lol.gif I love some of the twists on cupcakes/muffins!

I haven't had time for the lemon cuppies yet. Hopefully this weekend. Between going back to school and working 12 hours a day, the days just fly by.

Everyone loved the carrot cake cuppies. Definately try them if anyone hasn't!

I just made the lemon cuppies. Loved the icing it gets a 4.5. It would have gotten a 5 if it hadn't been so thin. I found the cake part to be dry also. Maybe some cake flour for part of the AP? I would only give them a 3.

Here we go again, Hurricane Ike. I am about 2 and a half hours due north of Houston. I am praying for all of us to make it through safe!!!

If I still have electricity, I am baking this weekend. I want to have cake to eat during all of this chaos!

Let ya'll know how we do. I would love to know about everyone in his path, too.

I'm planning on baking too! I have eggs and milk in my fridge that will go to waste if the electricity goes out. Might as well put it to good use!!
