While a chocolate cake or ice cream cake may seem like the best way to celebrate your kid’s birthday, why not change things up with a whole bunch of delicious cupcakes? They’re big enough so that each kid will be full after one, and small enough that they won’t get a dreaded stomach ache after eating them. Your kids can even join in and help you bake a batch of these sweets too!

  1. Brownie Candy Cupcakes – Kids AND adults will love these easy to make, delicious cupcakes!
  2. Sprinkles Red Velvet Cupcakes – Sprinkles in by far our favorite bakery. We just can’t resist buying their tasty cupcakes by the dozen. Their red velvet cupcake is one of the absolute best cupcakes on the menu.
  3. Lemon-Kissed Cupcakes – These light cakes have a touch of lemon on top – absolutely delicious!
  4. Chocolate Cupcakes – Make completely from scratch, this is an easy batch to whip up for a school snack or whatever other reason.
  5. Black Cat Cupcakes -These adorably cupcakes are easy to make and the kids can help with them too!

  7. Banana Cupcakes with Dark Chocolate Chunks – I made these for my birthday to bring to the office and they were a big hit! The ganache is a cinch to make and totally worth the tiny bit of extra time.
  8. S’More Cupcakes – Don’t trust your little ones (or yourself) near an open flame? Whip up a batch of these cupcakes that taste just like the real thing… without catching on fire.
  9. Warm Chocolate Cupcakes with Molten Centers – Baking these is one of the easiest and tastiest ways I know to make a great impression on your dinner guests. Most recipes, including my own, call for just a few ingredients — chocolate, butter, sugar, eggs, and a dash of flour. You combine them very quickly. And the cakes don’t take long to bake — barely more than 10 minutes.
  10. Bursting Flower Cupcakes – Serve these sunny little cakes and watch the smiles bloom! They’re sweet delight with every bite.
  11. Marshmallow Peeps Cupcakes – These festive cupcakes have coconut, Peeps and jelly beans for a sweet Easter treat.
  12. Decadent Chocolate Cupcakes – Not your ordinary cake mix cupcakes, these treats are rich and melt in your mouth.

Just some great ideas for you and your family.

New Bisquick Gluten and Corn Free


I had extra strawberries that I had to use up so I decided to make some short cakes to go with them with the new Bisquick I had found the last shopping trip.

With the recipe on the back and my muffin tin…it was a breeze and a quick and easy dessert that both my hubby and I can enjoy…

Since my camera is shy today…here is this recipe…

4 cups (1 qt) strawberries, sliced

1/2 cup sugar

2 1/3 cups Bisquick Gluten Free Mix

1/3 cup butter or margarine (I softened)

3/4 cup milk

3 eggs beaten

1/2 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup whipping cream, whipped

Mix strawberries and 1/4 cup of sugar (unless you like sweeter, add more); set aside.

Heat oven to 425F.  Grease cookie sheet or do what I did and place in muffin tins which I sprayed with butter Pam cooking spray.

In medium bowl, combine Bisquick mix, and remaining 1/4 cup of sugar (or a trace more for a sweeter roll) ; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork.  Stir in milk, beaten eggs and vanilla.  Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet or place into muffin tins and I had enough to make a small loaf also.

Bake 10-12 min or until light golden brown Cool 5 min.  With serrated knife, split short cakes; fill and top with strawberries and whipped cream.

While warm I sprinkled sugar across top to give a nice sprinkle look.

Ate one for dessert…very filling.

Happy Cooking.

Gluten Free does not mean Corn Free :(


I was in a rush when shopping and was so excited to see the new stack of boxes in the Gluten Free Isle…I grabbed without reading.  I also baked without reading.  Luckily I had hungry mouths who were extra in the house… and I sent the balance home with them…

They may have been gluten free but the corn starch was right there …

so easy to use potato starch… ugh…brownies dancing before me that I can’t taste…

Such a sad time for me cause I could just taste them as the aroma of them baking was filling the house… such a tease…

At least the cake mix is an ok item… lesson learned…
