we had a team meeting on sunday.  i decided to make some cupcakes.  a little to ambitious since i also needed to clean my house.  make sure that i had enough food to feed them all. it was sure a fun weekend.  since i really try to stay away from sugar i had some professional testers (todd, ash & jt) come & help me.  although there was no one around to taste this one... so i had too.
boston cream pie cupcake
click here for the recipe
it is delious.
be careful not to do what i did.
i cooked the filling a little too long.
it wasn't as creamy as it should have been.
it was still delicious though.

jumbo cupcake with butter cream frosting & a strawberry.
i used martha's chocolate cake recipe too.
i got it from her cookbook.
i looked for it on her website but couldn't find it.
i highly recommend it.
funny story with this little cupcake.
i tried 2 times to make strawberry frosting.
2 different recipes.
ugh.  none of them worked.
so i stuck with the trusty butter cream.
& just added a strawberry on top.
i will conquer the strawberry frosting.

jumbo chocolate with peanut butter frosting
 it's as good as it sounds.
if you like chocolate & peanut butter.
topped with a chocolate covered peanut from trader joe's.

all of them.
