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 with my project. I

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
