Old cake plate, new recipe
Tonight I made the Barefoot Contessa Coconut Cupcakes for the first time. I haven't tasted one yet but I think they are going to get an A+ (they have 3 sticks of butter in them). I've got a dozen to take to work with me and some set aside for a sewing bee tomorrow night plus a few extras. I realized as I was starting the frosting that I didn't have a pound of cream cheese so I made half the recipe and there was plenty to frost two dozen cupcakes. So...who can tell me how many cups 1/2 of 1 1/2 pounds of powdered sugar is?!?
P.S. I love this cake plate; it's a family heirloom.
