Snickerdoodle Cupcakes - #5

The Martha Cupcake Project was back on today!!! I made Martha's Snickerdoodle Cupcakes for my mother in law's office get together. They turned out YUMMY!!!!! So stinkin' good! I have learned that with all of these recipes, I don't need to bake them quite as long as Martha suggests. The recipe said to bake them for 20 minutes, but I checked them at 16 minutes and they were done. The recipe in the cookbook also recommended frosting them with the 7 minute frosting recipe, but I went with the fluffy vanilla frosting, due to not having a candy thermometer. Guess I'll have to invest in one of those if I ever want to make that 7 minute frosting. But these were AWESOME! They were a hit at the get together and one lady even thought they came from a professional bakery here in town! Talk about flattered! If you like snickerdoodle cookies, you must try these!!!

What pipe number do you use for your frosting? I have tried to get mine this big and it don't work what am I doing wrong?

Danita, I just used a plastic baggie and cut the end off. The bigger you snip off the end, the thicker/wider your piping will turn out. :) But... you'll also need to make a little more frosting than normal as piping it that big takes a little more!
