Gold-Sprinkled Cupcakes

 Made these cupcakes for my friend’s mom, who celebrated her 50th birthday.

Lessons learned: Transporting cupcakes in Jeddah at noon should be avoided at all cost! =) The heat, plus the constant movement of the car contributes to the quick melting of the frosting. =(

Second lesson I’ve learned from making these cupcakes: Go for the regular Kit Kat Chocolate. The minis don’t reach the cake, thus, making the top less stable. Any movement can cause the Kit Kat to move the rest of the frosting. Just like what happened to my cupcakes! =| If you really want to use the minis, put them on top of the frosting. Using this startegy however, could push the frosting’s center, downwards.
