cup cakes and magic squares...

*cup cakes* lots of cup cakes...





i have a fabulous cup cake recipe but I need to tweak it a little before sharing it (altitude issues)

* * *

*magic squares*


these are a long-time family favorite. i made them for my baby's b-day party (because 48 cup cakes weren't quite enough...)



1/2 cup butter; melted

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs (abt 1 pkg)

12 oz chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups coconut

1 can sweetened condensed milk

chopped nuts


*mix graham cracker crumbs and butter. press into 9x13 pan. sprinkle with chocolate chips, coconut and nuts. drizzle with sweetened condensed milk. bake at 325 degrees for 30 min. cool and chill before cutting
*a yummy variation on these is to substitute the chocolate chips for white chocolate chips and add craisins...soooo good!

I can bake the cupcakes, I just can't make them as cute as you...when are you offering frosting/icing classes?!?! Seriously...

Do you have a coconut cupcake recipe? Where do you get BIG cupcake pans and liners. Please answer...I am hungry.

Macy,
I have a really good coconut cupcake recipe with cream cheese frosting...! I'll post it. I've found the big cupcake liners at Target by the cupcake pans, NOT by the baking stuff and other cupcake liners, whatever. Orson Gygi has the giant cupcake pans ($6.99), I'm sure they have the liners, too.
