I am now at #16 of 28 cupcakes made from the Pink Princess Cupcakes Book by Barbara Beery.
As most cupcakes designs start with a cupcake, so does this one! Once again, I used the Allergen-Free/Vegan Chocolate Cupcake Recipe from the Martha Stewart Cupcakes Book, it is such a simple cupcake, simple ingredients and turns out well for me.
The frosting is a chocolate buttercream. (1/2 cup light margarine, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar, a heaping 1/2 cup of cocoa powder, and a large splash of milk to bring it all together)
For the fortune cookies, store bought of course, I dipped in Candiquik, colored pink with Wilton Pink Candy Coloring. Here we go...pink candy again! 2 blocks of Vanilla Candiquik is enough to dip 12 fortune cookies. And yes, I have a little leftover! Working one at a time, after dipping, I shook the fortune cookie off and immediately sprinkled with chocolate jimmies and placed on waxed paper for a few minutes to set while I frosted the cupcakes.
Maybe it is because there is a little fortune in each one, but these cupcakes are fun to me!
My fortune said:
"Luck is on your side today."
Hmmmmmm? I wonder what that could mean?

As for the next Pink Princess Cupcake that I will be making...
