Last week, I tested out Rum Punch Cupcakes...
These babies were by far the most challenging thing I've ever baked.
But I was determined to perfect them.
Here they are, in all their glory!
Let me tell you a lil story about Rum Punch, Yellowbird's, and these cupcakes...
You see, Mark Dean and I honeymooned in Jamaica.
While in Jamaica, we drank Rum Punch...
a lot of it.
And I, to this day, continue to drink Rum Punch...
a lot of it.
Also, while in Jamaica, a local named me "Yellowbird".
While browsing for a name for the shop,
I mentioned to a friend that I wanted the name to be connected to Mark Dean in someway.
Since that's where my love for baking spawns from.
And she remembered that they called me Yellowbird!
So, that's where my bakery name come from.
And I thought to myself...
"Self, if you are going have a Jamaician-named bakery, you must have a Jamaician cupcake."
So, I was bounded and determined to make this cupcake a success.
While I used a whole bottle of Malibu Rum in these cupcakes,
I found that it was not necessary to achieve the Rum Punch flavor...
so, I'll prolly opt out of that next time.
Tonight I made the most amazing Reece's Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting.
And they were def. heaven in your mouth.
I don't have enough words to express the amazingness that I experienced while biting into those bad boys!
MMM MMM MMM!
Until later this week, when I show off Key Lime Cupcakes that I have planned to bake.
And...the 2nd Yellowbird's order!
Here's to an amazing week!
(Just imagine me raising my Rum Punch drink...or cupcake...for a toast! Ha!)
