On top of doing line edits for IT'S RAINING CUPCAKES, my editor asked if I might have any cupcake recipes we could put in the back of the book. Of course they couldn't come from any book or magazine, due to copyright issues.
I have a couple of recipes I've made over the years that are the best of some of different recipes. But I hadn't really written anything down, so yesterday I went to work, writing things down as I went, hoping they turned out with the measurements I was using.
I made three different kinds. One wasn't particularly successful. But the other two - YUM!! Sorry, I can't tell you what flavor they are - it's top secret!
I'll be sending the recipes to my editor next week, and hopefully they'll get a big thumbs-up and make their way into the book.
I'm no Martha Stewart when it comes to frosting them, but here are some pictures. Now I have to get on to the other book I need to revise. Think I'll go for a run first, though. I mean, if you bake them, you have to try them, right? Ahh, the things we do for the sake of literature.
