I finally used those pretty dried hibiscus flowers the lovely Celine sent me for something other than just straight-up snacking. Cupcake decorating!
These are the golden vanilla cupcakes from VCTOW, topped with basic buttercream frosting (also from VCTOW, of course). I don't remember the last time I actually baked something that was just plain vanilla. But they are mighty delicious, and simple. I found the red cupcake liners at the same dollar store that I got the popsicle tray I mentioned in the last post.
...and speaking of that. Thanks to all for the suggestion of running the tray under hot water before attempting to remove the pop. However, I am sorry to report that I am still not SMRT enough to get it to work correctly. WTF?
