Train Birthday Cupcakes

I made such a mess making Ethan’s train party cupcakes that I decided it needed a post all it’s own.  Here are 2 tips I have for you…learned from hands on experience…with photographic proof!

#1-Use a pastry bag large enough for your frosting needs.

#2-Don’t overfill your dry ingredients in the mixer, especially without a shield over it.

I made a huge mess but the cupcakes turned out great!  I’ve thought for awile I didn’t want to have cupcakes be a part of my cake-making, but I had fun with these!  They were chocolate on chocolate with a cream cheese center.  The yellow RR crossing discs and white RR Crossing light signal were made using fondant and food marker pens.  I think a small cake with cute matching cupcakes will be perfect for some parties.  I wonder who will be the first one to have a cake made by me for 2011?!
