I wanted to make something FUN for the bake sale last week at Brady's school...something the kids would be really excited about. I made hundreds of these milkshake cupcakes...and boy were they a hit!
I found the recipe over at Bakerella. I switched things up just a little bit. Here's the recipe and some tips that helped me:
1 box cake mix (any flavor)- I used strawberry.
I used tall cupcake liners and filled them a little less than half full.
Bake cupcakes and let them cool.
12 0z. semi sweet chocolate chips
6 TBS. butter
3/4 heavy whipping cream
Melt butter and cream in a saucepan.
Remove just before it starts to boil.
Add chocolate chips; stir.
Let cool about 10 minutes.
Poor (or spoon) ganache over cupcakes.
Eat leftover ganache by the spoonful.
Refrigerate cupcakes until ganache gets firm.
2 sticks butter (room temp.)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 lb. box of 10 x powdered sugar.
1 - 3 tsp. milk ( depending on how you want your consistency)
Cream butter and vanilla.
Slowly add powdered sugar.
Use a Wilton 1M or 2D tip to frost cupcakes (if you want the whip cream look!)
Add sprinkles after frosting each cupcake.
Put cupcakes in the freezer for a few minutes to harden the frosting before
adding a cherry sour on top.
There were some other FUN cupcakes at our bake sale too.
The two moms that made them said they worked hard to make them "Kerri worthy."
I hope they were just kidding! They did an awesome job. They seemed proud...and I made a huge fuss over them!
I love the pig!
The fortune cookies are made with caramels. You can tuck special little fortunes & messages inside. Love them!
"You can't look at a cupcake without smiling."
Not sure where that quote comes from. Anyway, my busy week is over...and I'm
happy to have a little more time this week. I need to catch up on a few things around the house
that I have let go...and if I don't get some groceries today, my family will be having crackers for dinner!
I'm looking forward to catching up on all your blogs!
Have a great week!
