To be honest I was a little bummed on how these cupcakes turned out, but only in their last stage, the meringue decorating stage. So in all honesty I guess that would be my fault. I have never in my life made meringue and I'm not sure if I did it correctly. I guess looking back on it they're not all that ugly, but at the time I was ready to throw them in garbage. Had it not been for their phenomenal flavor and the fact I was bringing them as a gift, I may have. Once I got them down to Seattle though I wasn't as unhappy with them as I was earlier in the morning, maybe it was because I only got 6 hours of sleep. You be the judge I guess, ugly or not? All in all it was fun to make them, and they turned out pretty enough, and they tasted amazing. For the recipe vist Cheryl over at cupcakeblog.com. I would highly reccomend it, although they are mighty expensive to make for a cupcake (almond paste costs about $8 and you use the whole thing, not to mention the cost of 8 oz. of fresh raspberries in April) but it's worth it for a once in a while fantastic treat. Quite possibly the best cupcake I've ever had.
