Why hello! 🙂
Time to update about my REAL coffee cake and lemon blueberry cupcakes!
They came out QUITE beautifully. The coffee cake really packed a caffeine-punch and the lemon blueberry cupcakes were delightfully tasty ( or so I heard!).
I did get to eat some of the coffee cake and oh my! The coffee frosting was delectably coffee-flecked and yummy, though I’ll probably cut back on the amount of sugar the next time. You really don’t want to know how much powdered sugar went in there… 🙂 The cake itself was moist and you could taste the coffee. I wonder if any of my friends had trouble sleeping that night.. keke. Like I mentioned in the last post.. there were about 4 to 5 cups of coffee in that sucker. JITTERS ANYONE?!
I actually gave my lemon blueberry cupcakes away to co-workers, but they loved them too! I got rave reviews about the cream cheese frosting (one co-worker said she wanted to eat a BUCKET of it!). But the funny thing is…there really wasn’t that much cream cheese in it. I guess it was just the perfect amount! 🙂 I think this cupcake (well, more like a muffin if it weren’t for the frosting) will be one I’ll make again. I really love the whole lemon/blueberry combination. Plus, it makes me think of yellow + blue, one of my favorite color combos! Which may or may not stem from my love for my alma mater UCLA! 🙂
Here are a couple more pictures!
I’m amazed that there was only a quarter of the cake left! 🙂 See the lovely coffee-ness?! YUMMY.
I just love the wrappers. So freaken cute! 🙂
And since I have a free night and tomorrow is Easter.. I think I shall be making some sugar cookies! 🙂 Perhaps rabbit ones? Or eggs and flowers? Not just to celebrate spring (which I am very glad is finally here!), but to celebrate LIFE in Christ.
He is risen!
