annual bake sale part 2: sour cream apricot cupcakes with mascarpone frosting and toasted almonds

Our second offering at the No Cookie Left Behind Bake Sale was a batch of sour cream apricot cupcakes with mascarpone frosting, also from the Ming Makes Cupcakes roster.

Ming Makes Cupcakes' Version
our version:
These cupcakes were suh-weet, even if our final, deflated picture isn't. See, our second batch had a few duds (see above) and a few out-and-out casualties (see below).
Here's a tip I wish someone would've told me before making these: Make sure to fully cover the apricot filling with batter. If not, the filling may explode.

As for the bake sale, it was a super success!
Oh, look, there's Heather, one of the co-hosts/bakers now. Niiiice shirt, by the way, HBT!
 
OH and this year, there was a raffle. Whaa?! Amazing. In short, I love this bake sale. Thanks so much to all who organized!

Those cupcakes looks insane! (even the casualty looks edible!). I've only been to the Bake Sale once, and I wish I could go every year to try all of the delicious seeming goodies.

By the way, I found the "To the Lighthouse" pic online, however I would bet my mom has that very copy (she collects rare editions of V.W.).

Furthermore, I just woke up from a dream about "The Wire," specifically Omar...after having finished it 2 weeks ago, I still can't stop thinking about it!
