Vanilla Almond Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream Frosting
Happy Birthday Tutu!
I knew I wanted to incorporate almond into your cupcake, because of your famous Chicken Almondine recipe. I found the recipe here and only made a few changes in the frosting. From the frosting recipe, I omitted the vanilla bean and almond extract, and reduced the sugar to 2 1/2 cups (instead of 3). This is my new favorite frosting. It's delicious! The cake isn't what I'd expected, but I've never worked with Almond Meal before - not my best work. But, the frosting - the frosting!
