Make Sprinkles Cupcakes!
Admittedly, I've never actually made it to a Sprinkles, but I have it on good authority that it's pretty awesome. Plus, my friend gave me the cutest matching spatula for my birthday.
I know. That's a Halloween cupcake liner. I never got around to making festive Halloween cupcakes. Oh well!
I may not be the cupcake's biggest fan... or a fan of frosting, but these cupcakes were pre-tty delicious.
WARNING: don't eat the top candy decoration thingy. When my friend first warned me about it, I laughed it off and forgot about it. Then when my roommate tried and made the most painful face ever... let's just say, I'm a believer.
Apparently no one ever thought to taste it before sending it off.
On another note...
It's starting again.
The pre-holidays school blues.
I swear every year, starting a week or so before Thanksgiving and then lasting until Christmas, there's very limited willpower to pick up my books and study.
Meh. At least it'll be Thanksgiving soon!
There's no cupcake recipe this week as it just came from the mix (plus 1 egg, 2 egg whites, 1 stick of butter, and 3/4 cup milk). But here's the recipe for the vanilla frosting!
Recipe: Vanilla Frosting

1 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 tsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
Beat butter and salt on medium speed until fluffy.
Gradually add the confectioners' sugar.
Add the vanilla and milk and beat until smooth and creamy.

Since I've been on an Adele kick all day, I came across a video where she describes her inspiration for each of her songs...
