I think it is quite funny and fitting that I am watching Julie & Julia coincidentally and trying to make cupcakes. I make cupcakes all the time but this time I tried these very cool new cupcakes liners from Bed Bath & Beyond. They are pretty awesome because you do not need to use a muffin pan-you just place them on a cookie pan and voilà! Well, almost. I placed all the cupcake liners soooo close to each other and I did not think about them expanding (rookie mistake, right?). So now I have cupcake brownies….or Square Cupcakes! O well!
I tried a new way to frost my cupcakes too! A DIY frosting tool-A handy Ziploc bag-just add the frosting into a Ziploc bag and squeeze the frosting on in a circular direction. How fun! If this is your first time like it was for me, don’t actually seal the bag, twist the top of it so it doesn’t explode!
PS. Even more ironic…I learned something interesting about the film after I was done watching it: Julie & Julia is the first major motion picture based on a blog.
So I was watching a movie based on cooking and blogging while I was cooking and blogging and didn’t even know it! 🙂 Funny.
