Baby Shower Rattle Cupcakes

December 18, 2009 at 6:45 pm 13 comments

These are baby rattle cupcakes for a baby shower.  My friend was attending a baby shower for her friend and asked me to make some cupcakes for her to take to the shower.  Normally, she would make the cupcakes herself but she is also pregnant and in her first trimester and these days, she just feels sick all the time.

I decided to make vanilla cupcakes using Billy Reece’s Vanilla Vanilla Cupcake recipe and for the first time also tried Billy’s Vanilla Buttercream recipe.  As I was only making 12 cupcakes for the baby shower, I asked my other friends to taste test the extra cupcakes I made.  The feedback is that these cupcakes are much lighter than the Magnolia Vanilla Cupcakes and the icing was not too sweet (Billy’s recipe calls for 6-8 cups of sugar and I made sure I stuck to the 6 and nothing more).

    is the yellow that makes up the rattle, buttercream or fondant? If its buttercream, how’d you get it SO smooth and perfect!?

      Sorry for the late reply. It’s buttercream. Made it smooth using a spatula & patting it with my finger.
