Black and White Cupcakes

So, I've been working non-stop on an old dresser the hubby and I were given from my father -in-law. He bought it when he was really young. Then it was painted white, then really bright blue. I've got it all sanded down to just bare oak. This thing is solid too! It's awesome! I'm going to give it a really light coat of stain so it'll stay rustic looking and match the rest of our bedroom furniture. I can't wait to get some pictures of it when it's finished.

So now that you know where I've been and what I've been doing over the past week or so... I'll show you what I concoction I've baked up for tonight's bunco party.



"Black and White" cupcakes. So really they are "Yellow and Brown" but we won't get technical. You just take yellow cake batter (boxed is my preferred cake mix) and chocolate cake mix and spoon it into the cupcake pan side by side with a tablespoon... or whatever size spoon so long as both are the same in size. Then they'll come out halvsies!! Since this photo I have taken a knife and cut about a half in down in the very middle and filled with Betty Crocker's whipped icing so that they are like hostess cupcakes! Yeilded 24 Texas size cupcakes.

So Fun! I love bunco nights. It let's me unleash my creative baking. It's really hard to bake 24 Texas sized cupcakes for just the hubby and I.
