|Dark Chocolate Cupcake with Whipped Peanut Butter Frosting|
Cupcake decorating/best tasting competition at work for St. Patrick's Day.
Didn't think many people would enter and I would be the only fool with cupcakes---I was wrong. Many many submissions.
Some were really pretty---others, not so much.
Some tasted good---most, not so much. Just sayin'...
Didn't think I would win because as the judging was going on most people seemed to be raving about all the cupcakes that were made using boxed mixes. I honestly think majority of people like the taste of those more because it's what everybody grows up with.
I sat around the conference room joking with some of my colleagues, went back to my desk to get some work done, walked back to the conference room because I realized I forgot my favorite pen, and everybody started clapping and saying congratulations.
I did win!
It was kind of exciting.
Wasn't going to put these cupcakes up because I already have similar recipes here, but since they DID win (cupcake carrier caddy was the prize) I decided to put up some pictures.
By some, I mean the 2 that are at the beginning of this post.
That's all I have. :)
