We just got some samples of our New Cupcake Mixes that we had developed “Just for Us” to add to our gourmet product line. Since the girls were here this week end, I thought, what better time to Test the Recipes...!!! The girls picked out their aprons while I gathered all the necessary bowls and ingredients and Little Katie was Ready to BAKE….:):):)
She was so excited and had so much fun just putting the cupcake liners in the baking pan.
In goes the mix and the red handled whisk that Katie chose to use.
These mixes are SO Kid Friendly….No Eggs or Oil….All that was needed was water and Mayo…Yes, Mayonnaise. What a great idea. No worry over uncooked cake batter.
SHE had So Much Fun….and it was So Easy to make…!!! Soon it was time to fill up the papers with Yummy Cake Batter. And keeping all those Little Fingers out of the uncooked treat was impossible…:):):) Then it was time to Lick the spoon..or whisk..!!!
BUT…there was More Testing to be done. We actually have three different flavors to try. So while the “Birthday Cake” flavor was baking in the oven, we started on the Halloween Dark Chocolate Mix…This mix comes with tiny chocolate chips that melt inside the cake while baking. Just Yummy….!!!
Different Mix….Same recipe…Just add water and Mayo, mix and bake….!!!
The girls really questioned putting “Mayonnaise” in their Cupcakes…They’d never head of THAT before…!!! But it only took a few LICKS and I knew that these New Mixes were going to be a Hit…!!!
OK…One more flavor…..Christmas Peppermint Cupcakes…
Watch this pretty mix turn PINK when water is added…Oh So Pretty..
This delicious mix has just the right blend of Peppermint giving it a Yummy Soft hint of flavor. And LOOK at the color. LOVE IT…:)
The more we mixed, the more Katie’s apron was showing the drips of this yummy drippy cake batter…Guess I’ll be putting the Apron in a cleaning test…:):)
Then the last uncooked taste for today….!!!
Katie was Happy and we all had So Much Fun…!!!
By the time we were done with ALL THREE mixes…my poor knee had just about had it and I was one tired Gran…LOL…:):):) So we skimped on the icing, not to worry, it was Delicious, just not as Pretty as they could should have been. Do you think that bothered us….Of course NOT….!!! These yummy Cupcakes didn’t need perfect toppings. All that was needed was a napkin. Get out of our way, WE HAVE CUPCAKES…..They were all SO delicious…!!
Mallory was HOME from College this week end. Between the Brittney Spears Concert and waking up extremely ill yesterday morning and had to be taken to the doctor, we didn’t get to spend a lot of time with HER….:(:(:( She’s still sick, but is on the road today headed back. I MISS HER so very much.
That’s it for ME today…:) I hope YOU had a good holiday this week end. Spending time with family is priceless…and I cherish each moment that comes my way. Baking with my girls is like pouring Memories in the Oven…:) Take some special time with YOUR little ones, cuz before you know it,
PS….You can find the adorable aprons on my web site
