Championship Cherry Cupcakes!

IMG_1974

I think you might remember that I mentioned that my sister did the job on her ankle the other night at a co-ed soccer game? That’s right, she went ahead and broke several bones and tore a few stability muscles in her ankle! Obviously that is going to suck for any adult (I wouldn’t say “anyone” because I swear some kids think it’s “Cool” to be in a cast!).  But who it really sucks for is a high school soccer coach who is supposed to be standing/teaching for long school hours and then turn around and coach in rain and thunder and lighting until 9:30pm! Yup all of that in a walking cast, and honestly she hasn’t really complained about it. She’s like the Energizer Bunny and just keeps on going!

Well, since she’s been doing a lot (and suffering a lot) for her high school soccer girls, I thought I should do something for both her and the team! Last night was the Single A District Championship to which her team pulled out a 2-1 win AND my sister was awarded District Coach of the year! Woohoo! So obviously I didn’t know any of this before making the cupcakes since I was bringing them to the game, and that is why you’ll notice there isn’t necessarily anything spectacular about the decorations on the cupcakes… I didn’t want to make “District Champs” plaques and then jinx them.

This was a last minute batch of cupcakes, so baking pictures are non-existent. Instead I thought I would showcase some mouth watering pictures of the cupcakes I never got to sample!! Here are my vanilla cupcakes with cherry flavored buttercream.

If you want the buttercream recipe you’ll have to stand by until next weekend to see how they did in the Regional Finals!!!

Till then..
