After my recent trip downtown to Magnolia Bakery, I felt a desire to try my hand at recreating their classic yellow cupcakes at home. I pulled out my trusty Magnolia Bakery cookbook and got to work. The results were delicious!
I hit a bit of a speed bump in the middle here. The cupcakes were all baked up nicely and I made the first frosting that I saw in the book – a simple confectioner’s sugar + butter concoction. It was a nice white color, but the flavor left something to be desired. I asked my sister what I should do (as she was to be the recipient of a large number of these cupcakes), and she voted for chocolate. This was where things took a turn for the better. Moral of the story: flip through the whole frosting section of the book before choosing one!
Other moral: Chocolate is always the answer.
Keep up with York Avenue!
