Frosting always finishes a cupcake and they look fantastic. As much as I love to make cupcakes look beautiful with all that wonderful sugary goodness – I don’t always like to eat it.
I have been known to wipe all the frosting off and then eat my cupcake. I hope I’m not alone in this craziness. Are any of you guilty of this practice?
We have had a very hot week here in Idaho and the last thing I wanted was a heavy icing on our cupcakes. So we tried something new – Cool Whip Frosting. So easy and very light for these hot, hot days.
