Maybe I’m obsessed with Disney princesses or maybe my almost-3-year-old niece insisted that they pose with the cake. I’ll let you decide.
One thing is certain: that was one awesome birthday week!
Jill, Julie, and Andrew came up to Austin the Sunday before my birthday. We had lunch, then made dessert! The recipe was super secret until it was time to make it: Sticky Toffee Cupcakes! YUM.
The cake part is basically a white cake with soaked dates folded in. You can’t see the toffee because it’s piped in the centers…sort of! For some reason, the toffee kept separating, which made it tricky to work with. We ended up squeezing more over the frosting, which is coconut cream cheese! On top are toasted coconut flakes. Coconut x2! Remember this.
