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’ve always been a little behind the times. I don’t usually see movies at the theater and my clothes are a few seasons behind. I have no idea what’s on t.v. these days and I had no idea what a Minion was. I saw Minion Cupcakes on Pinterest and thought they were strange. My brothers talked about Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 and they meant nothing to me and I didn’t even know Minions and the movies were related.
Well…my husband rented movies one night and since we have 3 little ones at home we watch a lot of kids movies. He brought home Smurfs and Despicable Me 2. So we sat down to watch after a small fight of what are we going to watch first. Despicable Me 2 won, somehow throw 3 and 5 year old logic and compromises. I loved it. All of sudden those weird Minion Cupcakes on Pinterest were so cute.
The kids and I liked them so much we decided to make them for my husbands birthday. He thought they were great.
My kids loved helping my make daddy’s birthday cake. They are so easy I felt almost bad that I didn’t spend more time on my Hubby’s cake.

There is nothing worse than trying to make frosting only to find you forgot to buy more powdered sugar. This is the predicament I found myself in a few weeks ago. I had found a great Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcake recipe, had made them ahead of time so they were cool enough to frost. I went to make the frosting only to realize, what I thought was a bag of powdered sugar, was a bag of sweet rice flour. I was devastated. I did not have the time to go shopping, what was I going to do? We could have just had cupcakes without frosting, but that seemed wrong. So, I did what I feel I do best. I used Google.
Turns out, there are plenty of frosting recipes out there that do not use powdered sugar. I had no idea! A whole new world of frosting just opened before my eyes. I found one at ourbestbites.com. This is an interesting recipe, it uses a white sauce combined with a creamed butter and sugar mixture. It looked interesting and I had all the ingredients. I followed her advice and doubled the recipe to make sure I had enough for all my cupcakes. I was unsure just how long to cook the white sauce, so I think I did not cook it long enough, my frosting was really soft. But held its own and everyone loved them!
