Goodbye Andrea

One of my best cashiers at work had her last day Friday 😦  She is the grandma to us all- she makes us all kinds of goodies and treats and tells us all to be nice to each other.. . naturally the traditional grocery store cookie cake wasn’t going to cut it this time!  I found a great cake recipe in the Rachael Ray magazine that I alway go back to.   So I started with the white cake recipe (which normally makes a four layer white cake) and made cupcakes with it… then I used my regular buttercream frosting recipe, but added a couple of tablespoons of lemon juice to make it nice and zesty!   Then, I busted out my ultimate cupcake trick- throw some chips (white, chocolate, butterscoth, it doesn’t really matter- coordinate to your cake flavor) into the food processor and grind ’em up.  Next frost your cupakes and just roll them in your ground um chips…. add a ton to the texture and flavor and they look really impressive with minimal work!
