Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall — Life as MOM necessitates some quick “grab and go” recipes, dishes that are easy to take on the road or can be eaten out of hand. The kind of recipe you can grab — and GO! And if that grab and go recipe is dessert, well, so much the better.
I know I’m a little late joining the Cupcake Craze. Better late than never, I say. Truly, what was in my way was that gross frosting that grocery stores use on their cupcakes. Those have always been a deterrent for me. Holdover baggage from my childhood, shall we say.
But, since I discovered homemade buttercream frosting as well as cute, cute, CUTE cupcakes, well, I’m on board.
A Perfect Dessert
Cupcakes are the perfect dessert. Well, almost. Chocolate Cheesecake‘s a close contender.
Anyway, as I was saying, cupcakes are the perfect dessert. They are kid sized, especially when you make minis; they require no utensils; and they are easy to transport. Just plop them in a lidded box. And they can be so cute! Proof positive:
Rachael from Mommy Topics created these cute and easy Candy Cane Brownie Cupcakes for Christmas in July here at LifeasMOM. She also provided all sorts of wonderful tips for making easy cupcakes. If you are a cupcake novice, you’re going to want to read her cupcake tutorial.
