Cupcake party!

I invited a couple friends over to bake cupcakes and to stuff ourselves. I prepared some hummus with carrots and red pepper slices, so we'd have something to balance out all of the sugar. Fun times ensued.

Mini almond cupcakes. VCTOTW goldens made with almond extract, with almond-flavored cooked buttercream, and a perfect raspberry.

Black bottom cupcakes. VCTOTW chocolate cupcakes, with creamy filling.

Superior to Cream Cheese filling
8 oz. Better Than Cream Cheese (1 container, non-hydrogenated)
1/3 c. unrefined cane sugar
1 tbs. plain, unsweeted soy yogurt
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
6 oz. chocolate chips

Mix all of the ingredients together and scoop a heaping tablespoon onto each cupcake (12) before baking at 350F for about 20 minutes. Let these cool and set before messing with them too much. The soft filling makes them pretty delicate.

Ooey-gooey insides. (Lizzi should be a hand model.)

Tiramisu cups from VCTOTW, with coffee instead of Kahlua.

All together.

So awesome. i appreciate you having the "healthy" foods there for balance. That's sooooo something i can relate to. i wish i was your friend and we lived geographically close 'cause i'd so be there next time!!! Thanks for sharing this fun experience.
