jared cooked dinner yesterday, and i promised a yummy dessert to follow. for some reason cupcakes immediately popped into my head, and i scoured the internet for the perfected cupcake recipe.
if you've ever been to sprinkles, you know they have got "the" recipe. i came across two recipes by candace nelson, the co-founder and pastry chef of sprinkles. she released her vanilla-peppermint recipe to oprah here, and i also found her coconut recipe in the la times here.
i made the coconut in regular and mini size and really liked 'em. you can't say they are quite the same as the real deal, but they are a close second.
*****becca, do you remember when you lived in newport and would tell me, "i really need to stop eating sprinkles because if not i'm going to turn into a cupcake!" you frequented the hot spot and rightly so.*****
