I made cupcakes last night. I used a basic yellow cake recipe from Cook’s Illustrated and added some orange extract. I had all this leftover chocolate icing from my cake, you see. I figured cupcakes are easy, good for D&D, and will use up the leftovers. Only sort of worked, as I still have icing left. Also, I was lazy and didn’t want to sift my cake flour, so I just used AP. They could be a little on the tough side. I hope not.
Why didn’t I make the yellow cupcakes from last year? Well, it was gross out and I didn’t feel like going to the store to buy sour cream.
