What’s Cooking: The Cupcake Company

Memorial Day Weekend is often a time when families get together and kicks off the unofficial start to summer when there are parties and get-togethers galore! To make those events extra special, we get some tips for decorating cupcakes.

Hamburger Cupcake

To make the Hamburger Cupcake, you use yellow cupcake as the buns, chocolate cupcake as the patty, and different colored frostings to make the lettuce, mustard, and ketchup.

Baseball Cupcake

Take a yellow cupcake, cover top with white frosting. Dip white frosting in white ball sprinkles, smooth over top. Use red frosting to create the red stitching of a baseball.

Flower Cupcake

Take a yellow cupcake, cover top with white frosting. Then, cut up green Fruit Roll-Ups into the shapes of the stem and leaves. Use red jelly beans for the petals.

Puppy Cupcake

This recipe has a lot of chocolate. Use a chocolate cupcake, cover with chocolate frosting, then dip frosted cupcake in sprinkles. Use a the cookie portion of an Oreo, cut it in half and place the two halves on top for the ears. Use squeezed frosting to create eyes and mouth.

Dirt & Worms Cupcake

This cupcake design is similar to our Puppy Dog decoration. Both use chocolate cupcakes, chocolate frosting, and Oreos.

The difference? Colorful gummy worms. And this recipe replace the chocolate sprinkles with crushed Oreos to represent dirt. Press the gummy worms on the top of the cupcake to make it seem the worms are coming out of the dirt.
