Cupcakes and the weekend

First of all I need to make another apology - the MMOM fics for tomorrow and Sunday will be late (not sure how late because I don't know when I will have time to write them). I'm off to Expo for the weekend, printing photos and all that jazz. If you're going maybe I'll see you there. Will be in the 'photos with the stars' area along with beloved husband and sister, probably watching Soph try and kill Brian as he asks for 500 Merlin shots an hour before he needs them or something equally as silly - LOL.

I made cupcakes last night, well actually I made the cakes part the night before and iced them all last night. They are for the weekend - we have to make sure people are fed.

I made three types:
Banana with vanilla butter icing (and pink sparkly bits)
Chocolate with sweet chocolate butter icing (and silver balls)
Vanilla and chocolate chip with dark chocolate butter icing (and pink metallic balls).

Not sure what they made the silver/pink balls out of, but anyone who eats them should watch their teeth. I think it may have been real steel - LOL. In the taste test I almost lost a filling to one.

I don't have the recipes on me, but if anyone wants them, drop me a comment and I'll put up a post. Having taste tested them on me and the hubby I can say they were a success - my favs are the double chocolate ones and Rob likes the banana ones. I think I may have slightly over done the chocolate chips in the vanilla ones since they seem to be lots of chocolate with a little bit of cake holding them all together ::g::.

I couldn't work out why the room seemed all foggy at the end of the evening last night, then I realised my glassed were covered in a thin film of icing sugar! :)
