I have been feeling like making cupcakes for a while so I finally decided to remove the dust form my cupcake toolbox. It has all the nice stuff in it like tips, sugars, candies, etc. I turned up my sleeves and started baking.
The Goal of the day: making vegan coconut cupcakes that will be decorated as wolves and owls. Also to be patient as well, which is one of my biggest strengths… Ah, no! Well yes… NOT! I will probably have more than few hours of work, plus tonnes of chocolate on my face, on the floor, on the table and… Did I say on the floor? Well, courage!
The coconut cupcake mix is pretty easy to make: 8 ingredients, 20 minutes of baking and it becomes lovely cupcakes. I put a bit too much of the mix in each of the paper cups (I made 9 instead of 12), so I needed to cut the top of each one to make the decoration easier. Anyway, I didn’t have to squeeze Dayne’s arm to get him to eat all of the tops!
Next, I cut the marshmallows to create the ears and mouths for the wolves. With hot water it was easier, otherwise the marshmallows would’ve eaten my knife.
More than 2 hours already has passed, wow time went fast, but I really like what I’m doing. My first owl and wolf have been finished, which one do you prefer? I like my wolf, well I have no choice after working more than 45 minutes making the each single hair. -_- Je suis fière de moi!!!
Owls’ eyes are almost done and yummy… OREOS! Perhaps I ate too much. Only two, I swear!
No no, I’m not trying to remove a splinter from my fingertip; sometimes we need to fix the decoration, oh and by the way, I almost cut myself. I’m kind of clumsy! I was nearly done with my cupcakes when I looked at the clock and realized that I haven’t had lunch and the only thing I’ve eaten for the last few hours is sugar. Oh well, I know a guy who’ll be annoyed by his girlfriend tonight in the bed…
Ah, it’s really complicated to make wolves’ teeth, especially because it’s 19 degrees in the kitchen and my icing isn’t soft enough!
This picture makes me realize that my fingers tattoos aren’t nice…
4 hours later, tendonitis on my left hand and way too much icing in my tummy, they’re awesome and I’m really dressed in grey!
THERE WE ARE!!!
