I love Easter, not only for what it represents,
The Colors of Easter make me Happy!
Today . . . I had some Color fun.
I made some Happy Cupcakes!
It might have been snowing like crazy here today, but it was Spring in this house!
I also made some funky colored Caramel Corn.
See . . . Now you’re Happy!
I made THIS Chocolate Cupcake Recipe
and THIS yummy homemade MARSHMALLOW Frosting.
These Brownie Pops also say ”Hello Easter” . . . They would make you Happy!
I made this fast and Easy Caramel Corn Recipe, and simply added some Neon Food Coloring.
CHOCOLATE CAKE or CUPCAKES
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup Hershey’s Cocoa powder
1 cup Crisco Oil
1 cup Buttermilk
1 cup Hot tap water
2 teaspoons Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla.
The amazing thing about this cake recipe, is that you put all the ingredients in your bowl at the same time. Using a hand mixer, blend the ingredients until well mixed. Don’t over blend, a few small lumps are fine. Before putting in your pan, grease & flour them. Once you have added the cake mixture, tap lightly on the top of a table or cabinet, to release any air bubbles. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.
I usually bake my cake on a large deep Cookie sheet. (Like those you can buy at Rush’s Kitchen Supply) They now come with lids!
If making cupcakes, this recipe will make 24 good size cupcakes.
2 egg whites and 1/4 tsp. salt
until very very Frothy.
1/4 cup white sugar
Beat until very smooth thick and glossy.
3/4 Cup light Karo Syrup.
Beat until stiff, stiff, stiff Peaks form.
Fold in 1 tsp. Pure Vanilla
*Note: Beat this until very, very, very stiff peaks form!
Frost cupcakes, cake or pipe on.
Don’t cover cake tightly.
