The Most Delicious Cupcake (revisited) and a Give-Away!

January 29, 2010 — 19 Comments

Last year, in honor of Obama’s inauguration, I made Ina Garten’s Flower Cupcakes. To say they were a big hit would be an understatement. They were proclaimed by one and all to be “The Most Delicious Cupcakes in the World.” Almost exactly a year later, I decided to revisit “The Most Delicious Cupcakes,” this time for a baby shower, to see if the moniker still held true. A few of the same people ate them again this time. Upon seeing them, one person said, “Oh my gosh. Are those The Most Delicious Cupcakes in the World?” They are. They really, really are. The recipe can be found HERE, at the Food Network Website, but here’s a very important tip: Do not fill the cupcake papers all the way full! They will overflow. A lot! I’m guessing this recipe could make around 36 normal-sized cupcakes. When Ina says it makes 22-24, I honestly don’t know how she accomplishes that! And I made my own cream cheese frosting, not Ina’s. Mix 1 brick softened cream cheese, 1 stick softened butter, 1 lb powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and a pinch of salt.

And now for the give-away: Today is my birthday, and to celebrate, I’m giving away one copy of Martha Stewart’s Cookies!! The give-away will be open for one week. Next Friday morning, I’ll close the comments and randomly choose a winner. To enter, just leave a comment on this post. You can say whatever you like (nice things please), but make sure you include your email address so I can contact you when you win! And if you mention my give-away on your blog, you get an extra entry; just leave a separate comment letting me know you blogged about it. Good Luck!!

  1. Happy birthday! I’ll have to try the best cupcakes ever one of these days, they look so pretty and festive.

    I have that cookbook (it’s a good one!), so you don’t need to enter me in the giveaway.

  2. Happy birthday! Today is my best friend’s birthday, too! I love Ina recipes, but I’ve never made these cupcakes. Thanks for the note about filling the cups all the way full — I hate it when things overflow!

  3. I have tried several of Ina’s cupcake recipes and loved just about all of them but this one has eluded me. Thanks for pointing it out! Your cupcakes look very festive.

    Fun giveaway! Happy Birthday – hope you enjoyed your day.

  5. I love this cookbook. I have it (of course its a cookie cookbook) we use it at least every Sunday. I let the girls take turns picking which recipe they want to make with me and we go to town. Last Sunday we made the Snickerdoodle recipe. It was delicious. Happy B-day! I love your give away idea!
