Black and White Cupcakes by claremanson Black and White Cupcakes by claremanson
Finally after a year and a half of baking i have manged to incorporate two of my biggest passions together, music and baking! I must say because of this i had so much fun baking them, i haven't had this much fun baking in a long while as normally i am baking for others, this was for me. I must say they tasted divine!

Black and white cupcakes inspired by Marilyn Mansons song Black and White! and my renewed love of stripey socks.

Two layers of sponge in each cupcake, vanilla then chocolate made with gluten free flour using my usual cake. On top of the cupcakes i poured on some white icing and then used black writing icing for the lines. I then photographed them on top of the lyrics to Black and White.

Oh, ok. I realized Marilyn's song has "and" in it while MJ's was with "or". The cupcakes are delish, though.

Are the liners they're held in edible?
They just look kinda thick, like white chocolate.

they are liners, they were really thin so i had to use loads of them in the oven to keep it's shape properly

Looks awesome clare-chan! =D
Great concept too! You probably have lots of patience to make the black icing really straight...

thank you, the black icing being from a tube only took seconds, which is great because i don't have the time these days to spend ages on baking :)

They look great. I love the contrast of black and white. The lyrics are a nice touch too. I've gotten really lazy about listening to music recently, which is weird because it used be really important to me.

thank you :) i have been the same with music too lately, hardly listened to any this year which is a long time for me, i haven't been in the mood for it but then i realized it's the best thing for me when i am feeling low, silly me!

Having a new album by a favourite artist being released really helps too. I should really look up some of the bands I haven't listened to in ages and see if they've got anything new out.

nice~! im actually baking today too X3 but im doing cookies :3

im doing chocolate chip and then half with adding peanutbutter ^-^ this will be the first time doing that

oh and i might actually get a job 0_o

yum yum :) ooo what job are you after?

LuffyNoTomo Featured By Owner May 4, 2012
well i applied to many places but the two that got back to me were Sony Aniplex--an anime studio that needed a administration specialist--job details here [link]

but the problem with that one is they need someone who can do bussiness japanese and i dont really know that bec. its sooo hard and i have no experiance in doing merchandise licenses --- so at the last interview done in japanese it didnt seem like they were looking for someone like me but someone with more experiance - they said they would call if they were still interested but have others applying for the job as well.

it was sorta like a thanks for meeting us but we were looking for someone with those higher skills and can deal with licenses

and then yesterday while i was out for my jog - the arts and crafts store Michaels called and i have an interview today at noon. I think this job is more suitable for me - plus its 5-10 min. away from my house and i think they will hire me on the spot X3

but either way i hope to get a job

as for the cookies the came out looking a little burnt but they didnt taste it - the chocolate chip ones were too thin but the PB ones came out the right size - they were okay but for some reason i couldnt taste the chocolate in either of them @_@ i wonder why - i'll post them after i get ready for my interview

shame about the first job but the art store does sound very promising, i will have my fingers crossed for you :)
Strange you couldn't taste the chocolate, most intriguing!

i know right? i put in 1 cup of chips in a batch of cookies that i ended up cutting the recipe in 1/2 so it was twice the chips @_@

i just posted them on my gallery in desserts

That is a seriously gorgeous photo. (aesthically photo-speaking, I love how you didn't use normal wooden textures etc instead you used a notepad!)

And of course it looks delicious as hell.. as usual! :huggle:

thank you :) as soon as i came up with the idea i just had to have the lyrics with it and it had to be black and white, i guess i just like to link the theme of the food to the background as much as i can :)

when you said you wanted to incorporate baking and music, I thought you might pipe out the notes for the music on the lines on the cupcakes

i've been wanting it to happen since i started baking! It finally came to me this morning as i really wanted to bake something as the kids were entertained for once and not fighting for more than five minutes then the song popped in my head, ten minutes later i was baking!

This is what we like to hear. =D Maybe you'll be inspired to do more baking with the topic of music in mind. I'd be interested to see what ideas you'd come up with.
