Peach Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Meringue Buttercream

title says it all..they aren't very 'peachy' so next time i would add a peach glaze and try making a buttercream with peach puree..they ARE very good and fluffy, just not very peachy

i topped with some cinnamon sugar

now, someone explain to me why my url takes people to some spam site

Dark Chocolate with Marshmallow Buttercream

Another quick post...Just a basic 'one-bowl' chocolate cake with a marshmallow buttercream.  I did the shortcut of buttercream with Fluff, not the same as the usual cooked marshmallow frosting.

The cakes came out with perfect domes!

Another Strawberry Attempt

This time I made a strawberry cake, complete with fresh strawberry chunks and a strawberry swiss meringue buttercream.  I love making this type of frosting, it takes a bit more time but its so much *more* than a traditional buttercream. 

The batter on this batch did overflow and normally I would redo (because overflowing cupcakes tend to bother me) but I was exhausted and had to accept the uneven cakes.  The buttercream came out great but I have a feeling the strawberries were a bit too tart.  I guess we will see how these go over with the crowd tomorrow.
