It's been awhile since I've been active in here. It sure has gotten quiet! 

Today I am finishing up some chicken stock and trying to put my kitchen together, so I can make cupcakes later this week. We recently moved back to the states from Germany. While I will greatly miss it there I'm glad I can easily find ingredients and supplies needed to make my cupcakes without having to wait a few weeks for them to come in the mail!

Today I was going to make Vanilla Chai Latte cupcakes until I discovered I was short on butter. I have to wait until tomorrow to get to the store. I should at least be able to ake some bread today.

If your recipe allows, you can replace butter with corn oil. :)

I don't have any. All I have is coconut oil and olive oil. We just moved and haven't stocked up on everything. :(

Sad, and olive oil will change the flavor.

I made them today! Dh stopped at the store for me! The icing was a bit soft, so it didn't pipe like it usually does. Too much vanilla.

Vanilla Chai Latte with Spiced Cream Cheese filling and icing.

They are very good!  All I did with the cream cheese icing was mix up the chai spice listed for the cake and added it to the icing until I got the flavor I wanted. It made almost 3 dozen cupcakes.
