Marvelous Monday

Hello Everyone! 
I hope your Monday is going greatly so far!  A lot of my friends started back to school today (my friends are almost all younger than me and still in middle and high school.)  It is kinda lonely with no one to text me or anything.  Yes I love to text. :)  It is way better than talking in person, most of the times.  It gives you a chance to think and say more meaningful things.  But anyways, I still have a couple more weeks so I am going to make the best of it ^_^

Anyways, I made some cupcakes the other day cause I was starving!

I used the Perfect Cupcake Mix Recipe that I found over at Tidy Mom.  It really is better than just a normal cake mix.  The recipe calls for butter.  Real butter does indeed make it better.  I tried it both ways, with real butter and margarine.  Both are good but I think it is worth it to use the Real Butter :).  The real butter makes the mix more creamy, while the margarine didn't make it as thick or creamy. 
My icing recipe, I also used from Tidy Mom.  Here is a link to the Butter Cream Frosting Recipe on Tidy Mom.  It is very good.  It isn't too sweet and its a perfect consistency.  I love it.

My camera was dead and we were out of batteries :/  So I had to use the camera on my phone.  It is not very good quality at all.

I did the icing two different ways.  I did a swirl from the outside in, making it look like the ones on the right.  Then I wanted to try a rose type one.  So I started from the middle and swirled to the outside, looking like the first picture.  And then of course, a cupcake is never complete without sprinkles :)

I hope you all have a Marvelous Monday!!!
