These were made in addition to the cookies for the luncheon. I colored the icing to match the colors of the invitation (though my colors came out slightly brighter) and added some luster dust (while mixing the colors in) for some added sparkle and shine! These cupcakes are strawberry with vanilla buttercream and silver dragees on top.
*I've discovered that I have to bake my cupcakes and cookies at a slightly lower temp, my oven tends to get too hot for some reason. I learned this pretty early on when I was over cooking things or under cooking them (when taking them out earlier than instructed) however, lately I've been having to turn the oven back up. What's the deal oven? Just when I get used to your picky and needy style, you turn on me?? Not cool, not cool at all.
On another note, I LOVE making cupcakes. That's right, bring it on Sprinkles!
