My daughter is OBSESSED with all things "Wicked", the musical based on the book by Gregory Maguire. I couldn't resist the temptation to make our own version of a "ding, dong, the witch is dead" cupcake. It's very simple to do. You use black food dye in an airbrush to color the ice cream cones, chocolate wafer cookies and wickedly green buttercream for a melted witch. They were a huge hit!
I am a baking enthusiast who grew up watching my great-grandmother make her delicious southern-insired sweet treats. My grandmother makes the best blueberry cobbler in the world. My mother's apple pie is to die for and so it is because of these special women that I have a love of baking sweet art in my kitchen.
