A while back when I blogged about FNM’s food coloring guide, I promised that I would share the results of my cupcake frosting experiments..so voilà, here they are!! My favorite batch were cupcakes that contained fruit to match the color of the frosting; yellow banana cupcakes, pink strawberry cupcakes, and purple blueberry-chocolate cupcakes. I put pieces of the fruit in the batter itself, as well as on top of the frosting as garnish (the blueberry ones had only chocolate on top). I sautéed the strawberries and blueberries with a little bit of sugar to soften them before adding them to the batter, and the bananas in a little bit of honey. Just be careful when adding the fruit to the cake batter as it could become more watery than you want it to be. And again, please excuse the shoddy pre-SLR photos. Nom!
In good health,
