KupCakes & Kids

KupCakes by the Kids
Today the kiddies decided they wanted to make & eat cupcakes.
(Our stove is being obstinate again & refuses to heat up or turn on for us. That's okay because we're deliciously determined people!)

We had 2 choices, either a crock pot version or in the microwave.

Tafi & Katzu opted for microwave since no one wanted to wait hours to devour a cupcake.

One Duncan Hines Chocolate cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of oil & 1 1/4 cup of water later, the boys were mixing & licking the batter up in 15 short minutes.

I doled out 2 tablespoon fulls of batter into each liner. Popped it into the microwave and hit 6 minutes cook time.

Which turned out to be too long. We stopped it @ 4 minutes and then let them sit out on the counter for another 5 minutes to finish off.

Just a side note: Microwave cupcakes are lighter, spongier than ones made in the oven. They are also more tender ( my word would be fragile) and can over bake real quick. We reduced the standard egg count from 3 eggs to 2 eggs because I don't like the egg-y taste that microwaving cakes leaves.

Tafi found a can of Stars & Stipes frosting for their chocolate cupcakes.

Katz did the icing & decorating.

All the rest of us, did the eating!
