Amy Sedaris is one multi-talented lady.
Nude-frosting-sprinkle model. Star and co-creator of beloved cult classic Strangers With Candy (see her in character as Jerri Blank below), sister of famed author David Sedaris, and best of all: talented baker.
Sedaris runs a small cupcake and cheeseball business called Dusty Food Cupcakes out of her kitchen in NYC, and has generously shared her home recipe for cupcakes.
- 1 ½ sticks of unsalted butter
- 1 ¾ cups of sugar
Beat well, then add:
- 2 large eggs
- 2 Teaspoons of pure vanilla
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- 2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
- 2 ½ cups of flour
- 1 ¼ cups of milk
Beat well, fill cups, and bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes. You should get 24. I get 18, 'cause I'm doing something wrong.
- 1 stick of unsalted butter
- 1 box of Domino confectionary sugar
- ¼ cup half-and-half
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla
Whip for a while, color if you want.
