2012 Project: 25 Cupcakes

Pin It Now!

I haven't made cupcakes in forever.
I make cookies, muffins and scones on a very regular basis, but I cannot remember the last time I made cupcakes.
I love all of the fabulous cupcakes I see around blogland and in magazines.
As I got thinking about some of my goals and challenges for 2012, I thought I should add cupcakes to the list as a baking challenge.
I thought about making a different cupcake recipe every week...for a total of 52 cupcakes.
But then I worried that 52 cupcakes might be a little too much...plus who is going to eat all those cupcakes?
Maybe 25 different cupcakes might be a more realistic goal for the year.
And you know what else I would like to learn how to do?
Pipe icing on the tops of those cupcakes....just like the picture above.
 So today is Project Cupcakes Take 1.
I know...perhaps it seems like a silly or frivolous goal, but we all need some silly to make life fun, don't we?

What goals or challenges have you set for yourself for 2012?

Yum cupcakes! Just get yourself one of these things: http://www.pamperedchef.com/ordering/prod_details.tpc?prodId=4075&catId=122&parentCatId=122&outletSubCat=

and you will be able to do the frosting just like that. :)

Hi Angie. Happy 2012 to you! We love cupcakes in our house, so I'm loving this idea of yours. I know if you post a recipe it's a good one. :) I made your sugar cookie recipe and OH MY. Best recipe for sugar cookies I have tried.

My main goal for 2012 - GET MY HOUSE IN ORDER. It is so torn up and a mess right now, I can barely stand it! But we are getting there.

Have a great weekend!

I look forward to all your creations! I have been pondering a goal for the year as well and still not sure what it will be. Stay tuned.

I LOVE cupcakes, Angie! Of course, I wind up getting the gluten free cake mix from Betty Crocker and make them that way. It is such a great size dessert for me to have in the evening when I'm craving something sweet and cakey. Have fun!

The cupcakes look great. I just made a bunch for my son's class for his birthday. Everyone loves a good cupcake! Thanks for stopping by - I may use your suggestion and put a basket under the sink but might still make the skirt to hide things! Anything to try to keep my husband neat! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I have teased my family that we should try one new vegetable a week. Needless to say, the 17 year old male thinks it should be meat instead. Have fun with your cupcakes!

I do agree that some silly makes life so much better! =) And cupcakes are awesome - your kids are going to love this goal I'm sure!

FUNNY THAT YOU MENTION CUPCAKES. I HAVE THOUGHTS OF SELLING CUPCAKES THIS SUMMER AT MY LOCAL MARKET. I HAVE COLLECTED LOTS OF RECIPES AND REALLY WANT TO MAKE THEM SO I THOUGHT NO BETTER THEN MY LOCAL MARKET TO TRY THEM OUT AND GET FEED BACK. HAPPY CUPCAKE BAKING.

happy new year Angie. i follow your blog and LOVE it!
it's a great idea to make 2012 "the year of the cupcakes"!!
I have 2 questions: 1, what is the difference between a cupcake and a muffin? is it only the decoration?
2,what is "pipe icing"?
have a great weekend :)

I have an idea about what you could do with all those cupcakes. Check out the site the cupcakekids.org. You could sell the cupcakes and help imprisoned children in Africa. Yep I said imprisoned children. They help raise money for an organization called sixty Feet. Just an idea.

I think this is the best goal I have heard out there yet. Good on ya. If all our goals were a lil more like about doing fun & happy things like this...I think we'd all be a little btter off. We live way too far away from the city---but I've always wanted to take one of those cake decorating classes at Michaels! So fun!

Hmm, it might be a fattening goal too! Hope you have those you can share them with.....ha!
