Teacher Appreciation Week

This week we celebrate all the teachers and staff in our community!  I volunteered to help set up the brunch at the elementary school this morning, and to bring cupcakes to the middle school tomorrow.  I thought I'd make my new favorite cupcake, from that white cake recipe I used to make the checkerboard cake.

Since this is a rather busy week for me, I made the cupcakes yesterday and frosted them today.  I made a half-batch of the chocolate fudge frosting I like so much, and poured it into a baggie while it was still fairly runny, then piped it onto the cupcakes.  I wasn't so neat so it doesn't look as good as maybe a fancy bakery, but it tastes wonderful, so who cares what they look like?

Oh, except for this:  I topped each one with a candied violet.  Homemade, of course.

The pictures are rather terrible as they are through saran wrap and taken with a cell phone. But you get the idea.
