My in-laws (all 20 of them) came in town this weekend for a week. I decided to make treats for them for when they got here today. I made sugar cookies from Confetti Cakes. I noticed something was a little off when the book said over four cups of flour for 2/3 c sugar and not much butter, but I thought hey, that's what the book says. When all I got was a crumbly mess, I ran upstairs to look online. That's when I saw that there is a misprint in the book- there should only be 2 2/3c flour. Not cool. Good thing the yummy buttercream was so yummy I was willing to forgive. Well, I did some whole milk and sugar fixes and they came out ok- a little dry, but still buttery. Not my favorite type of sugar cookie; I prefer the thick, soft chewy kind, but these held up better with the royal icing and flooding.
I also made these cupcake bites. Bakerella makes it look much easier than it is. What I thought was the right kind of cookie cutter wasn't, so I ended up molding them into cupcake shapes by hand
(Beansy thought they were mushrooms). It was all quite time consuming so needless to say, I'm going to find the correct cookie cutter for next time. I can't give up on these, they're just too cute!


  1. I've been planning on making those mini cupcakes for ages, but I've been putting it off because it seems so fiddly. Your still look good, though!

  2. OH YUM..buttercream! Can you share the recipe please?
