It's a party...you're invited!
I am cupcake crazy! I decided to send out LT's birthday invitations with a special gourmet cupcake fit for the occasion. After a terrible kitchen disaster with my original mix, I fell back on a classic recipe I have been wanting to try for a while. Let me give you a little bit of history on this cupcake....there are tons of hyperlinks that follow because there are so many props to be given.
A while back, my bro-in-law Chris sent Lauren a gift bag that was from a Baby Buggy event that he helped plan (he does high class events for very famous and important people!!) In this grab bag of goodies was the best tasting peanut butter I have ever eaten, from Peanut Butter and Co. !! I can't get enough of it!! Anyway, along with the peanut butter came a recipe book from the restaurant. Every time I read through the pages of the cookbook, I craved a PB&J sandwich! (and always made one when i read the recipes within).
The recipe I wanted to try was for Peanut Butter and Jelly cupcakes. I would post the recipe, but it is copywritten and I can't publish it online (however, you can email me and I will tell you how i prepared it). They had strawberry fruit jam in the center of them and the frosting was made from peanut butter, butter and sugar. It was awesome, however I think I am going to use more jelly next time. I was scared to use to much and end up with a soggy cupcake.
They were by far the best ones I have made and I received so many compliments on them. One person even said this was the best cupcake I have ever made!! So please enjoy this recipe and check out my fabulous birthday invitations. I guess I have to throw a superior party because the invite and the cupcake set a very high standard! ha ha!
