Chef Jacy’s Sweet Sweet Cupcakes

Has the cold and snowy weather given you a sweet tooth for yummies of various flavors?  Colors that make you think “I can’t wait for spring”?  Well, when the weather is YUK I want something “BEYOND THE YUM” so into the kitchen I go to create favorites.

As a little girl at age 12 who made the entire Thanksgiving dinner for a family of seven, I have always loved cooking and baking.  One of my favorite things to bake was cupcakes of every flavor, color, kind and to share them with my neighbor friends and family.  Thus my title “Chef Jacy” that stuck.  Pictured are yummy but simple cupcakes for a grab and eat treat, no fancy decorating but BEYOND THE YUM in creamy sweet flavor.  Pictured: Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Almond Coconut, Orange, Lemon.

These are a great project for you with your family or friends to share together on inclement weather days (or any day really) and enjoy the work of your hands in creating and enjoying them.  My recipe created at age 12 is just like the recipes in the project book I used for this batch.  It’s a great little book to add to your cookbook library.  Here is the cover and it is available online.

Enjoy!!!
