Mud & Worm Cupcakes (URS: Spring Recipes)

Ultimate Recipe Swap [4]

My first four children were boys. My last two were girls. I live a dual life as a mom. There’s legos and Jedi and lots of mud on one side. There are princesses and Dora and lots of mud on the other. For some reason, lots of mud is the common theme that runs through them both — particularly in Spring.

When I was making cupcakes recently I looked to my cupboards for inspiration. I found some gummy worms leftover from the Lego Powerminers Cake [5] in November as well as the ubiquitous candy rocks [6] that go on all our cakes. I was out of powdered sugar — and though I learned a few weeks ago that my Magic Bullet can make powdered sugar — I decided to use a frosting recipe without powdered sugar. Call it Spring Fever. Call it laziness.

Call it mud.

We made mud cupcakes with worms and rocks. How cool — in a gross, kiddie like way — is that?

These are easy to do, so you can enjoy the mud both insides and out on this beautiful spring day. Just try to keep the mud off the carpet!

And it goes without saying, of course, that your kids will love to make these with you.

Today we’re sharing Springtime Recipes on Ultimate Recipe Swap.
