I hope you had a wonderful Easter! (And if you follow a church calendar in which Easter Sunday marks just the beginning of the Easter season—a fifty-day period that spans the observance of Jesus’ resurrection, His ascension to Heaven, and the gift of the Holy Spirit upon Christians on the Day of Pentecost—then I hope this season has begun with great joy.)
I’ve been craving cupcakes lately, so I decided to make some in celebration of Easter Day. I searched the ‘Interwebs’ for a scaled-down recipe and found a promising Small Batch Vanilla Cupcakes recipe at a deliciously appealing website called celebratingsweets.com. The recipe yielded five (5) cupcakes.
Whipping up the batter was straightforward, and the cupcakes baked in about 17 minutes for me. The icing came together in less than five minutes, resulting in a smooth and creamy consistency. (Oh yes, I licked the beaters. And scraped the icing bowl clean, too.)
My photo doesn’t do them justice—food photography is not my forte, but I’m willing to work on it one delicious treat at a time.
