Hey there, Cupcake

I have a serious sweet tooth. No really, when I was 8 years old I wound up with stitches in my chin after excitedly running across a parking lot to ask for money to buy fudge. When I am in the mood for something sweet I mean business! So, it might be cause for concern that I've learned how to make these cupcakes. I am no baker by any stretch of the imagination and my first attempt turned out great (if I do say so myself). Now they're practically all I can think about. I've heard of gaining a few pounds as a newlywed but if I keep making these I am not going to fit into my clothes by Christmas. And while we're at it, how the hell do they get the frosting on those cupcakes to look so smooth? Mine looks like a monkey slapped it on.

to make the frosting look smooth, dip your knife/spreader into really hot water and spread it around after you have put the frosting on.

Oh you stop it. I'm not going to be able to keep reading if you teach me about delicious, easy to make, treats like this one. But I think your cupcake looks like it belongs in a magazine myself.

I have a problem getting my frosting smooth like that as well. Guess I need to try Kelly's trick next time.
