Jam Filled Cupcakes


Jam Filled Cupcakes, originally uploaded by bloomingpink.

Made some seriously pinked iced cupcakes that were filled with the most awesome Triple Berry jam given to me by my friend, Bonnie. The cupcakes were delicious, but I wasn't crazy about the taste of the icing, which is a shame, because in all counts, the icing makes the cake!



Here's the recipe for the cupcakes. It is so much better than box embellished and really just as easy.

Makes 12

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups baking flour (spooned and leveled)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup raw granulated sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
Favorite Jam
Wilton tip 230 and pastry bag
Cupcake cups

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cups in a 12-cup muffin pan.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla. With mixer on low, beat in flour mixture in two parts, alternating with milk.

Divide batter among prepared muffin cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a cupcake comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool in pan 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Using the tip for filling cupcakes and pastries (#230), fill a pastry bag with your favorite jam or jelly and insert and fill each cupcake. Ice with your favorite icing.

Eat and Enjoy!

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w

Unity Blog Hop

My project today is a little mini album I put together to give to my daughter, who is exploring the possibility of traveling across America from Washington State to Delaware in July. I wanted to give her something to log and journal her adventures! I used stamps from Unity Stamp Company's June and November Kits of the Month for the cover. Inside the cover, I put a little note. She plans to hitch hike which is extremely bothersome to me. I want her to be safe! Maybe I'll suggest flying out and renting a car and doing a rode trip with her! That would curb my fears and will also be fun! The journal block comes from their September Kit . Unity Stamp Company is featuring a sale on their previous Kits! This is the time to get them if you don't have ENOUGH! See their sales here: Sales at Unity The inside pages were not made with a KOM stamp, but this stamp is cool all the same. I love this flower . It's big and has many uses! To start at the beginning of th

Growing in Unity - Day 5 {Be Your Own Beautiful}

Well, here we are, my last post for the week!  It's Friday, and I am happy to report that I survived my first 2013 work week (an entire three days, mind you) after my little break in December. I thought I would finish off the week with a bright and cheerful card. Because it's getting colder and colder, and this is how I'm choosing to fight off that chill (this and some hot yoga sessions at my local yoga center) ......oh, and delighting in the fact that after passing winter solstice, we are now seeing more daylight with each passing day! I'm going to slip this card in with my daughter's stuff (somehow) when I see her this weekend.  She is about to leave the country, spending the next several months abroad.  And if you remember, she did this a year or so ago.  It was difficult, because she is a bit of a nomad and off the grid when she's abroad (no phone/computer).  So, we don't talk as often as we do when she is "Home"....mostly whenever she i
