I'm sorry I didn't post last night, the recipie I had used for the icing came out horribly and I had to re-do it (ie, run out and buy more supplies, etc...).
Anyway, here are my CINCO DE MAYO cupcakes! I tried to make them look like the Mexican Flag.
I used the CDM cupcake recipie from the "Cakedoctor"'s cupcake book, but I was unhappy with her buttercream icing. So, instead I used the good ol' Magnolia Bakery Buttercream icing recpie. Sooooo much better! The only thing was that I feel I needed to maybe add a bit more confectioner's sugar (8 cups instead of 6 - the recipe calls for 6-8), because the icing could have been a bit stiffer to hold the piping form.
I used a #30 tip and the Hershey's mini-kisses for the seal in the middle of the Mexican Flag.
I'll post the recipes after work tonight... gotta run!
Hope you all like them!
