pacanis, you want a frosting type deal or perhaps a nice ganache? I can give you the ganache, but you will want to put your cupcakes in the fridge for a bit to set it.

About the frosting, Pac....

As you know, I don't bake much, but this frosting is deeeeeeeelish.

I'd under fill the cupcake papers, and pour on this frosting when the cakes are still warm.

This cake recipe wouldn't work but see the bottom of this recipe for the frosting.

Wacky Cake..anyone remember this?

Gotta have frosting or it's nothing more than a muffin


I'll have to look up ganache and see what it is before I say yes or no
hmmm, cold cupcakes... could I keep them out of the fridge once the frosting sets?

Off to check out your frosting recipe, Kayelle. Thanks.

You can use a strainer.

Don't have one of those either, Andy. Unless you count the one someone gave to me that fits across the sink. That might be kind of unwieldy.
I just never have the need to sift anything... anymore...

Here's the simple recipe, Pacanis. No strainers, sifters, anything needed. And if you don't have buttermilk, put a 1/2 teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice in measuring cup, fill with milk to a 1/2 cup, stir and let sit for 5 or so minutes.

Thanks LP.
And thanks on the sour milk tip. I knew it was vinegar but couldn't remember how much.

You could always remove a window screen.
