Nimbus 2000 Cupcakes.

The rule for birthdays at work are very simple…

1. You get to pick any kind of cupcake flavor(s) and I will do my best to come up with something.

2. You must give me a fair warning and I will deliver within the week of your birthday… it may be after… I am human.

3. You must appreciate them and say you love them even if you don’t… I take criticism well but not when it comes to baking.

So now that you understand the rules I will tell you about my latest cupcake and first baking post on here.  My boss’s birthday was Monday and she requested to have peanut butter and chocolate, a cupcake I have not had to do since last year on her birthday so I was excited!  She happens to be obsessed with Harry Potter, an obsession I not only condone but 100% share.

So here is what I came up with… chocolate cupcakes with a mini peanut butter cup baked in the middle, topped with peanut butter frosting AND a handmade pretzel “Nimbus 2000” broom. They were a lot of fun to make and she completely loved them which is my favorite part of baking!

They are a little messy, the chocolate just would not set to look more like a broom but they taste delicious and isn’t that the point of cupcakes anyway?

Happy February!
