Temporarily bottled that is. Just long enough for someone to get a fork. I saw this cute thing on Joy’s Hope, and had to give it a try.
Simple enough to make this treat for your friends, neighbors, coworkers or family. Start by whipping together a regular cake mix…
and scooping it into greased muffin tins. Skip the cupcake papers. I used a #30 ice cream scoop to fill each well with batter. Bake as directed.
Aren’t they just sweet and perfectly uniform?
Now for the frosting. You’ll need:
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 stick butter
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp.. vanilla
Combine and beat until creamy. If you want to use a frosting tube–you can, of course. But we just filled a plastic bag and cut the corner off.
Note: If you are tempted to use store-bought tub frosting–don’t. You’ll be sorry. It was too runny and made a mess of everything. You must trust me on this.
Now then, take a clean, empty (duh) wide-mouth canning jar and squirt a circle of frosting “glue” in the bottom
Set one cupcake down at the bottom of the jar. Then, top with frosting. Add another cupcake and again, top with frosting.
Screw on the lids and keep refrigerated until you are ready to hand them out.
Top with a pretty ribbon or…
a five inch square of fabric cut at the corners and held on by string or raffia. Oh, and do your pals a favor…
just give them a fork.
