Another of my silly cooking advice entries, this one is about a true quest of mine: Perfecting buttercream.
Now. Cupcakes are not cupcakes unless they have icing, no? Would you eat a naked cupcake? Didn't think so. Poor thing would be all embarrassed. There would have to be some SERIOUS stuff going on in that batter, and even then they'd just be bite-sized muffins.
Icing is the key. I have been icing the family Xmas cake for as long as I can remember, but sadly it has always had to be royal icing, for the simple fact that it needs to last a while. Cupcakes deserve special icing, and buttercream is always the best.*
Here's the greatest recipe I have found (and slightly altered) for the perfect buttercream. If you're not lapping up the bowl at the end of this, I will call you a liar.

As I said in my last post, I'm going to try my hand at making cross-stitched video-game characters. I saw some great tutorials on how to do it sadly after I started this one, but I'm proud of how it's shaping up anyhow:
For anyone interested (anyone? Bueller?) my strawberries are now on sale!
