Aren’t they ugly?  LOL!

 

We are doing some home renovations and have spent a lot of time at IKEA.  Have you been?  Don’t go on Saturday. It’s totally crowded.  I happened to find one of these.  Compulsive shopping.  What can I say.

 

Saturday was the first time I tried to use it.

 

When my car left my house on a flatbed.

 

For the second time in one week.

 

So I made cupcakes.

And stuffed them with peanut butter frosting.

And topped them with chocolate buttercream frosting.

Do you know how to put a piping bag together?  I did not.  Which was fine because it came assembled.  Until I had to change it for the chocolate.   Youtube was involved.

I had no idea how to make cupcakes without the mix that comes in a box.  I mean, I know that you need flour, eggs, butter, etc., but no clue for proportions.  Don’t they do that for you when they package it up in a box?  So I found this recipe that looked interesting and used it.

The car is still broken, but I feel better.
