**----THE 1ST ANNUAL MARKFORD DERBY PARTY----**
supplies: all paper is Bazzill, banner is copy paper & pin is by Maya Road, black ink by Inkadinkado.
.MINT JULEP CUPCAKES.
these will now become a tradition!! they were so moist, yummy, and sweet :D
I poured the mix into foil liners, as to resemble the julep cup.
Original recipe found HERE.
My adaptations: I used Vanilla Cake Mix as a base instead of making it from scratch. Also, no bourbon in the cupcake. I did put about 2 tablespoons of bourbon in store bought Vanilla Icing & let it set overnight before I decorated them.
.BROWNIE BOURBON BALLS.
.I would definitely make these again - but they were more fudge-y than brownie.
.rollin, rollin, rollin.
.hard at work.
Original Recipe found HERE.
My adaptations: I did not use an egg substitute - I used real egg. Chris rolled a 1/3 with powdered sugar, no almonds. A 1/3 with almonds, no powdered sugar. A 1/3 with both. I recommend using nuts - it does balance out the richness of the bite size ball.
lemon jello cake, pasta salad, rolls, chocolate covered strawberries, julep cupcakes, bourbon balls. (lunch meat not out yet - the doggies would have gotten too excited, hehehe)
.AND THEY'RE OFF!!.
.ALL THOSE IN ATTENDANCE - derby hats required.
