I totally forgot to tell you about my recipes for my New Year’s brunch.
I wanted to make sure that the cupcakes I made were very moist since they were going to be served unfrosted. Even though some of my cupcake eaters are under five and would eat almost anything covered in frosting and toppings, I still wanted these to be delicious.
Since I was so concerned with the awesomeness of these cupcakes, I went to the cupcake queen for my big event. Martha Stewart.
There was some leftover buttermilk in the fridge from christmas cookie baking and luckily Martha had two perfect recipes for buttermilk cupcakes, one chocolate and one vanilla.. Thanks to google I found them in a few clicks and they were as perfect as I wanted. I even had guests take them home unfrosted. Cupcake success. Please bake these anytime you feel the urge for a baby cake!
It also turns out I completely forgot to write about Christmas cookies. Embarrassing, I’m adding that to my to-do list.
It should come as no surprise that for my birthday I wanted to spend the morning running around dripping sweat on the beach and spend the afternoon standing in line to buy a cupcake out of a machine in the wall. It was great.
The Sprinkles Cupcake ATM is quite an interesting invention and takes the gourmet cupcake shop trend to a whole other level… because it’s open 24-hours. I mean, how many times have you wanted a ganache filled cupcake in the middle of the night but just couldn’t get your hands on one. Apparently a lot for some people! I read that the ATM served an average of 1,000 a day during opening week, so good going Sprinkles!
It was pretty fun though Cynthia was let down that the cupcakes were pre-made, she was pretty excited about the idea of choosing the cake and then the frosting, but it was still worth the trip for me and my birthday craving.
Here’s the step by step process!

Voila! Your cupcake appears all cute and in its little box.
Then dive in! Happy cupcaking!
Have I made anything lately? No.
Yes, I generally bake for others. Birthday, holidays, Sundays, I’m usually feeding others my sweet and treats. But let’s get real, I do it for me too.
So since I’m dessert free until Easter, I need a week or two during lent before I can bake and not eat it. So you can look forward to reading about something St. Patrick’s style for my roomies next week! Probably peanut buttery!
I did want to bring this little gem to you though,
If you haven’t heard of this amazingly ridiculous but necessary invention. It is the Sprinkles Cupcakes ATM. Yes, 24-hour automatic cupcake machine. I will be visiting this in about 32 days. Yum.
