A family friend of my Husband and mine is celebrating a birthday this week. I wanted to use some of the edible glitter hearts I purchases and thought they'd look great with a black cupcake. I was hoping for a sophisticated looking treat. I do think I achieved the effect I was going for, but I have to admit the cupcake itself was not so tasty. I am not even going to post the recipe because I cannot recommend anyone to make these themselves. I'm not sure if it was the taste of the black dye, but this cake has a not-so-pleasant aftertaste.
I did find some adorable boxes to transport cupcakes. I am thrilled to have a more attractive way of presenting my baked goods. It's a shame these cupcakes don't taste very good, because they look wonderful!
I will tweak this recipe to make it more appetizing. I love the idea of black cupcakes. In the meantime, however, I am going to make some cute pink cherry chip cupcakes for our friend's special day. I do want her to have a happy birthday, after all!
UPDATE: I have since made delicious Black Velvet Cupcakes, which I have happily shared the recipe for! Click here for the recipe!
