Hi Jenny, By not smooth, do you mean lumpy? Perhaps try sifting your powdered sugar next time. Also, make sure that you don 8767 t use natural peanut butter it has too much oil for frostings.
Turned out great, except I definitely didn 8767 t end up with enough frosting for a 6:6 ratio. I would double the frosting directions to have enough, you may even have a little too much then.
in case you 8767 re wondering- no. my 67 yumm inducing cupcakes did not win the competition but they flew off the table in record time and i will certainly be making them again and again.
I have to say I hadn 8767 t counted on having a two step conversion going on, US cups = imperial = metric (us Brits are used to both imperial& metric being shown) and didn 8767 t find out that US cups are different to UK cups until they were in the oven so I suspect mine may have turned out a bit different to yours but they were a roaring success!
I had the same problem, my cupcakes turned out very light and crumbly. Idk what I did wrong but at least the flavor is great. Does anybody know how to avoid this? Do I have to add more flour or something like that? I live in a high place, maybe that 8767 s the problem :S
You can also use a brand of instant coffee called Cafe Bustelo. It is espresso in instant form. I first found it living in Germany and then when I came to the states I found it in Wal-Mart.
These cupcakes are marvelous. I texture is so light a fluffy, and the icing is the perfect complement to the slightly bitter chocolate cupcake! For a topping/accessory, I made mini sugar cookies and sandwich them together with a jelly to add to bring the childhood flavor of PB& J back. Love, love, love!
