The Weather Chef: Black Bottom Cupcakes

Posted: Updated:

Welcome to the Weather Chef.  It's a new segment we're trying out where I, the meteorologist, teach you how to bake some things.  Hopefully you can follow along and do those things at home. I'm here in the Pizazz Performance Kitchen, beautiful appliances for us to use, a great backdrop. We have appliances from Eklunds.  The marble counter tops from Cascade Marble & Granite have us the perfect set-up for me to teach you how to bake some things.  Now today, we're going to start off with something classy.  They're black bottom cupcakes, black and white, perfect to take to a holiday meal.  The kids and the adult are both going to love it.
