Andes Mint Cupcakes

I was responsible for treat day last week.  I think all of my co-workers reminded me that it was my treat day.  Everyone loves treat day.  Everyone also knows that I’m absent minded.  (Like when I almost left these delicious cupcakes in the fridge on treat day.  Luckily, I ran back for a Diet Coke. Phew.)

I headed on over to my cupcake board and picked out a recipe for Andes Mint Cupcakes.


Good choice.  Good choice.

You can find the recipe over at Your Cup of Cake.  I only wish I the skills to dream this stuff up.

I do want to share with you two of my favorite cupcake making weapons.

Weapon #1: Cupcake Batter Dispenser


This thing is awesome.  I am the world’s messiest baker.  Filling the cupcake liners is a breeze with this guy.  I used it for all of the them except for the top right.  See the difference?


Yes, it does look like Ike left a surprise in each liner but it shakes out. Trust me.


Weapon #2: Pampered Chef's Easy Accent Decorator


This little guy is super easy to use.  I’ve tried frosting bags before and they are always such a mess.  I just fill the tube with frosting using a spoon and squirt away.


The kit comes with multiple tips for many decorating options and a lid.


What are your favorite baking weapons?  Tried any delicious cupcake recipes lately?
