For this month's pick in the Martha Stewart Cupcakes Club, Lisa of Smiley's Sweets & Creations chose the Tres Leches Cupcakes from p. 48 of Martha Stewart Cupcakes cookbook.
Procrastinator that I am, I baked these early this afternoon and "frosted" and photographed them immediately before sitting down to type this post. I baked about a third of the recipe and came up with 6 cupcakes. I need to not have so many sweets in the house! It's killing me!
I taste-tested half of one (they are VERY rich) and plan to send the rest home with my mom tomorrow since my younger sis and brother have moved back home from their respective dorm/college town and they are young and skinny ;)
I thought these were pretty good...not out of this world. The cake seemed a bit too eggy to me, and I should have only used a fourth of the "tres leches" mixture b/c they were so wet that they basically needed to be eaten with a spoon! I was worried that I would not have enough cream to top all the cupcakes but I had the exact right amount :)
Thanks for the pick Lisa, and don't forget to check out the MSC blogroll to see how the other members did!
