Something About Cupcakes...
...that brings about a smile! Could it be the fact that it's small enough for one and big enough to share with a friend? Could it be that it reminds us of parties in elementary school where everyone had a Valentine or secret Santa? Or could it be that anything with a dose of sugar and icing can make anyone happy?
I'm loving cupcakes with edible pansies on top. The trick is to get organic pansies, use a paintbrush to lightly coat egg whites that has already been whipped, and very carefully dust with sugar. Then you can put atop your favorite cupcake.
Or you can bypass sugar coating the flowers and just opt for strategically placing some flowers on your cupcake. Snapdragons, hibiscus, and violets are usually recommended.
