Chocolate-y cupcakes!

I wanted to experiment with boxed cake mix without eggs. I used a box of Betty Crocker's Devil's food cake and it turned out pretty decent. The cake was soft and crumbly. Instead of eggs I increased the amount of oil (from 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup) and added Kingsmill egg replacer (3 tsp for 3 eggs) and water (6 tbsp). I frosted them with an orange buttercream with a bit of cream cheese for tang (my own concoction- a basic buttercream recipe with some orange juice, zest and cream cheese). I put sprinkles on Mom told me to leave some plain because she thought the sprinkles were too childish...I thought they looked fun.

I had wanted this cupcake tree stand for a while. I saw it at Adonia's on Tuesday and it looked really good so I decided to buy it. I think it displays the cupcakes beautifully!

Wednesday's cake decorating class is on cupcakes so you will see another cupcake post soon! I guess I'll have to bake some more because I'm pretty sure Longo's doesn't sell plain cupcakes. lol.
