A Perfect Day For Baking!

Feels like Fall has definitely arrived.  A little chilly this morning, and seeing I was up very early this morning and the clouds were looming,  I figured it was the perfect day for some baking.  It was a day for Village Sweets to work in the test kitchen and come up with a few frostings that are not sweet but have definite taste.  Buttercream is usually our choice, made of 100% good old fashioned butter, not the artificial stuff.   But it is still on the sweet side.  So the work begins…

7 hours later… I made some vanilla cupcakes, strawberry cupcakes and mocha cupcakes.  I prepared 2 different buttercreams, a swiss style and a cooked style.  I love them both. They are light, and airy and best of all THEY AREN’T TOO SWEET!  DELISH!
