Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. When my parents would treat me to breakfast at a local eatery, I would always order biscuits. There is nothing better than having a buttery biscuit slathered with jam, honey, or sausage gravy.
This recipe is easy and makes heavenly biscuits. I followed this recipe step-by-step to produce delicious biscuits with a perfect rise: https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1013741-all-purpose-biscuits
To help a good friend properly celebrate her birthday, I made some yellow cupcakes with fun decorations.
Box cake mixes are usually of high quality and save loads of time, so I used the Duncan Hines’ Butter Recipe Cake Mix to make the batter. The cupcakes only took 18 minutes to bake to perfection in a 350 degree oven. As the cupcakes cooled, I whipped Rich’s Vanilla Bettercreme until it formed a soft peak, which took about 10 to 15 minutes on medium speed. After piping on the frosting, I transformed the plain cupcakes into gorgeous delicacies by drizzling on chocolate ganache and caramel as well as sprinkling on colorful metallic edible pearls.
I am pleased to report that my friend enjoyed the cupcakes so much that she kept them all for herself.
