Cupcakes of 2011- Q1

Filed under: Cupcakes — by Alison @ 2:45 pm

Our kitchen calendar this year is “Hello, Cupcake” and each month has a different seasonally appropriate cupcake. I like to think that I can bake, but I’m not into fancy decorating. I prefer tasty to pretty, so this calendar poses a challenge. It doesn’t provide recipes, or even instructions, just the large picture and a smaller picture with the decorations labelled. I am planning on making all 12 cupcakes, and hopefully by December I’ll enjoy the decorating aspect as well.

January’s cupcake was a polar bear. I also made my favourite Vegan Mint Chocolate Cupcakes to compliment.

In February, it was Valentine Hearts.

And for March, the calendar called for ducks but I went with cake pops for my husband’s birthday.

He also got a delicious and very messy German Chocolate Cake.

Looking forward to my next baking adventure.

    • If I could figure out an occasion for the ducks, I’ll make them. April is goldfish, so maybe I’ll make them together 🙂
