Season 8: The
RoadHugs So Far
Aaaahhh hate you
You’ll probably hate me more tomorrow when I post a pic of them when they’re frosted. Cause they’ll look amazing. If you like mint. :3
Mint chocolate cupcakes. Awaiting frosting (which will be tomorrow), but they just looked so good. They smell good too. :3
Ahahahaha I actually was using my baileys frosting recipe and fully intended to put in more than 3 TBS but my creme de menthe is like twice as strong as Baileys and the three was enough. I also only used 3 cups of sugar, though, cause I’ve only got 19 cupcakes to frost. So if you had more sugar you might want more CDM.
So we have a section of unpainted wall in our kitchen. It’s really small. But we’re having a party and I was like “maybe we should put a note on the wall. Since will be painting over it anyway…” So this is what my mom wrote on the wall.
We’re classy grown ups around here, my mom and I. We are basically the coolest grown ups, actually.
Haha I kind of made it up on the spot because I ran out of mint extract. But it’s basically this:
Cream two sticks of butter on high (I use a stand mixer because I’m short and fancy). Slowly mix in 3-4 cups of confectioners’ sugar. Once all the sugar is mixed, beat on high for 3-4 minutes. Then slowly add 1/3 cup of milk. Then measure out 3 tablespoons of creme de menthe into a 1/3 cup. Fill the rest of the cup with milk and slowly add that to the mixture.
After that we still added what little bit of mint extract to it to make it a bit mintier, which was about 1/4 tablespoon. And like four drops of green food coloring for effect (the creme de menthe was also green but not green enough for me).
And that was it!
Haha thanks! I’m almost done baking. Last batch of cupcakes will be out in a literal minute. Frosting is MADE but I won’t frost them til after work tomorrow. Very quickly. You can be assured I will post pictures of my beauties. They are mint chocolate cupcakes with creme de menthe buttercream frosting and a little Andes mint on top.
Timer is about to ding!
