Last week I guest posted at my lovely friend Hani’s blog (Haniela’s), but wanted to share my St. Patty’s Day Leprechaun Girl Cookies here as well in case ya’ll missed it! Here’s the post!
Hi Hani’s cookie friends! I’m Michelle from Make Me Cake Me and I’m super stoked to be here! I’ve been a devotee of Haniela’s videos since I first started cookie-ing (my 3 year old’s favorite is the “big big strawberry cookie!“), which makes contributing to her blog incredibly cool!
Alright, let’s talk cookies! If you haven’t read my blog before, let me catch you up on a little something I noticed around Christmas. When it comes to the holidays, female characters are grossly under-represented (think Santa, Frosty, Rudolph, Uncle Sam, Cupid) and I’ve set out to balance the scales a bit… well, at least via cookies!
To be fair, I should probably say “pink-ish” velvet cupcakes.
The thing is that while I love red velvet cupcakes, I can never bring myself to add the full quantity of dye. When decorating cookies, I only use teensy amounts of dye (usually less than 5 drops per dozen cookies), so the premise of adding a full tablespoon seems bananas.
So I just shoot for pink-ish or red-ish and call it a day… In this case, a Valentine’s Day!
If you follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed that I’ve been posting some cupcake photos lately. Lucky me, I’m deep into a very wonderful research endeavor: identify my absolute favorite cupcake recipes. I’m just focusing on the top three classic cupcake flavors (as defined by me): yellow cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, and red velvet cupcakes.
