I love baking treats in the kitchen. I always look forward to finding a fun recipe for special occasions, but Chris' birthday is always my favorite.
These are the cupcakes I ended up making for last night. They're from a Martha Stewart recipe, which is usually my fail-safe. I love her recipes, but she may go just a little over the top with the crazy details sometimes. (I never thought I'd say that!).
Anyway, they turned out really tasty; especially the marshmallow icing. It was the perfect excuse to use my favorite copper bowl. I don't remember where I read it, but copper bowls are the best thing to use to whip eggs. There is some sort of mystery chemical reaction that happens between copper and egg whites that makes them extra frothy.
Now that I've had my fun in the kitchen, I think it's time for me to get back to work!
