Mini Cupcakes

I LOVE mini cupcakes.  Like seriously.... they are perfectly bite sized and oh so cute.  I mean, who doesn't love a miniature version of pretty much anything right????  So I am practicing my baking skills.  Yup!  That's right.  And I'm starting out with cupcakes.  I haven't really been able to practice much what with going to work full time and school part time at night (bleck) but I try to get some baking in when I can.  Over the weekend I made the most DELICIOUS cupcakes courtesy of a recipe my mom gave me when I got married.  I made mini raspberry cupcakes with raspberry cream cheese frosting.  Yeah I know..... they were incredible!!!  Mistake of the century though is that I did not put cupcake liners in my pan.  They didn't stick or anything because I greased the pan but those little cupcakes were just too easy to pop in my mouth everytime I walked through the kitchen.  Next time, I'm definitely using cupcake liners so that it takes some effort to eat those things.  Wise idea.
^^ This comparison picture?  I was having a rough time keeping all my batter contained in the individual cups.... obviously.  Found this unused mustard bottle to put the batter in and it truly saved the day!!
Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!  This week has gone by pretty slow for me.... what about you?

They turned out beautiful. How do you have an unused mustard bottle at your house?
I am so proud of you for doing both school and work. I can't even imagine how busy you are. I am only in school and think that's hard enough. Way to be amazing Liesel!!

Those look sooooo good!!! Send some over to California! ;) I wish I was better at baking. I always think it's fun, but nothing ever turns out the way I want it to. Except cookies. I'm pretty good at making those.

Also, super smart idea to put the batter in a bottle like that!
