Amy Sedaris is one multi-talented lady.
Nude-frosting-sprinkle model. Star and co-creator of beloved cult classic Strangers With Candy (see her in character as Jerri Blank below), sister of famed author David Sedaris, and best of all (in CAKES! CAKES! CAKES!' humble opinion): talented baker.
Sedaris runs a small cupcake and cheeseball business called Dusty Food Cupcakes out of her kitchen in NYC, and has generously shared her home recipe for cupcakes.
- 1 ½ sticks of unsalted butter
- 1 ¾ cups of sugar
Beat well, then add:
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Teaspoons of pure vanilla
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- 2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
- 2 ½ cups of flour
- 1 ¼ cups of milk
Beat well, fill cups, and bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes. You should get 24. I get 18, 'cause I'm doing something wrong.
- 1 stick of unsalted butter
- 1 box of Domino confectionary sugar
- ¼ cup half-and-half
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla
Whip for a while, color if you want.
