I was thinking about frosting today and that lead to light fluffy Peanut Butter frosting. Then I changed my mind to Peanut Butter cupcakes. The cake isn't too dense, very moist and the frosting well, it's in a class of its own. Crushed peanuts to garnish. I'm going to have a happy team tomorrow! They have been busting their behinds and these are for them.

Tonight is wedding themed poker and no kids are allowed! I made vanilla bean and dark chocolate cupcakes. Both with vanilla butter cream. They almost didn't get frosted. Pastry bags were being a pain in my arse or maybe I'm just blaming them since I had a few too many beers last night. The cupcakes turned out though. I used Dorie Greenspan's Party White Cake and and a dark chocolate recipe I've used before.

Simple sweet cupcakes. Full of lemon zest and lemon juice perfect with raspberry inside and on top. These were served at a PTSA board meeting and the remaining dropped off at my friend Jana's. They are her favorite and her birthday is coming up. These cupcakes almost didn't make it. I preheated my oven and started on the little gems and the oven didn't heat! I had to run them over to a friends at 10:45 PM to bake them. Thankfully they survived.
