Little Prince Cupcake

Chocolate cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting and a gum paste crown topper painted with gold airbrush color (food safe) to match a Prince themed First Birthday cake I made :)

Thank you!! :) Seems to me the recipes you can find that are more “liquid-y” in nature are the most moist!

yeah I thought that, they always look nice and rich and moist, but I thought the more liquidy it is, the more chance it may sink in the middle due to it not having enough dry ingredients. Ive never actually tried it though…so i will have to! LOL Thanks very much. and keep up the good work! just one simple crown…and the colour combo on a chocolate base just looks fantastic!

I always thought that way too – but the few I use do really well – as long as the eggs are truly room temp and your butter is nice and soft – think that really makes the biggest difference (especially with the cupcakes). Thanks so very much for your kind words! :)
