No Mess Frosting Idea

I made these snowman cupcakes yesterday with a cute way to package them. But today I am going to show you how I made them…

I found this cupcake mix at the grocery store and I decided that I wanted to try them.  I made the cupcakes according to the directions, except I added applesauce instead of the oil. (a weight watchers tip that I use all of the time!)  These cupcakes have a filling in the middle like a “Twinkie” and they are really pretty good, and they come in chocolate also!  This box makes 12 cupcakes, which was perfect for what I wanted.

After the cupcakes cooled I frosted them using this super duper idea I found on pinterest! You really need to take a look at this, because it is AMAZING!  The Mind-Blowing Cake Decorating Tip: how to have mess-free icing bags!  If you hate decorating with icing because of all the mess and clean up then this idea will totally change your way of thinking!

Mind-Blowing Cake Decorating Tip

After I frosted the cupcakes I used orange slices for the nose, (Cut in half) and chocolate chips for the mouth and eyes.  I was going to dip the cupcakes in edible white glitter before putting the faces on, but I totally spaced it.  But they are really cute with the glitter!

Here is my little family of snow people!

Look at how yummy these cupcakes are with the filling in the middle!

Then I put them in a clear 9 oz plastic cup and into a cellophane bag and tied them up.  They are fun for a  little gift to give to your friends, teachers, neighbors, or perhaps even for yourself!  You need a treat every now and again, right?

Jan 2012 VT Message

The message for this month is titled “Watchcare and Ministering through Visitiing Teaching”  I love the quote by President Monson about, how small acts of service are all that are required to lift and bless some one else.  We do not have to do big, grand things, but it is our small acts that bless others!

So this is the quote that I used for this months handout:

To print, just right click on the image, go to copy, then open your favorite program like word or presentations, right click again and go to paste.  Then you can print it the way it is or you can re-size it to whatever size you want,

Because it is winter time here in Utah, (even though we have had very little snow this year!)  I decided to tie this message to a snowman cupcake!

I love this idea, that I found on pinterest on how to package a cupcake in a clear 9 oz cup, then put into a clear bag and tie with a ribbon!  How cute is that?  You could also tie a plastic spoon to the package if you wanted to.

This idea is also a cute thank you idea…Thank you “snow” much!

Come back tomorrow for a super idea on how to frost your cupcakes with no mess!  I’m serious!  I tried it today and it works like a charm.  So stayed tuned…
