Snow Day #2
Well it’s in the mid-50s today, but just about one month ago, we had our second snow day of the year! And this one came only about two weeks after our last snow day! This winter has been nuts, and there’s actually still snow on the ground from those storms. Hopefully it will be all gone after the warmer weather and rain this week, but in the meantime, I’ll tell you about the second snow-day cupcake I created this year (and hopefully the last snow-day cupcake for this winter!)
This snow day came as quite a surprise, so I didn’t have a whole bunch of baking supplies around. After scouring the cabinets I discovered I did have what I would need to try creating a mocha cupcake.
After perusing the web for a bit, I came upon Mocha Cupcakes with Espresso Buttercream Frosting from the Brown Eyed Baker. They came out great! The cake was moist and had a really nice chocolatey-coffee taste, and the espresso buttercream was light and creamy. The cupcakes could easily be a substitute for your morning coffee, or more likely, a tasty compliment to it!
