On Wednesday, I got to attend a 21st birthday party for my dear friend, Javon. Now, I'm never one to show up empty-handed, so I knew I needed to make a special birthday treat. Javon had told me his favorite desserts were snickerdoodles and anything strawberry. I searched and finally found this yummy recipe for Snickerdoodle Cupcakes. This recipe was pretty extensive and took several hours to complete. First, I made my cupcakes. I started by combining my dry ingredients and setting them aside. Next, I creamed together my butter and sugar. I added in my eggs and vanilla, scraping the bowl after each addition. Finally, I added my dry ingredients in 3 parts, alternating with milk. I portioned the batter into 24 muffin liners, filling each 3/4 full. I baked them for about 20 minutes at 350. After they were finished baking, I let them sit about 5 minutes before letting them completely cool on wire racks. Much later, I mixed my icing. Not only were the cupcakes a delicious cinnamon blend, but so was the icing. I started by combining cream cheese and butter. Next, I added in sugars, cinnamon and vanilla. After it was completely mixed, I frosted the cupcakes and put them in the fridge to prevent the icing from melting. I safely transported the cupcakes to the party site and they were a hit. Cupcakes were enjoyed by the birthday boy, party guests, and even a lucky bar tender. Best of all there were plenty to share at work and with Mike at home. This was a yummy recipe and the perfect birthday treat for any snickerdoodle fan.
