Sunny Side Up Cupcakes
Sometimes, simpler is better! When she present the kids with a pile of candy and told them to be creative, the oldest country kid came up with a centipede made out of red hots, a cinnamon flavored candy. Leave it to a boy to make a bug!
Why am I telling you all this when this post is supposed to be about Sunny Side Up Cupcakes? Because this folks is how creativity struck! My son likes bugs..... I like farm critters. And that is when Sunny Side Up Cupcakes came to be!
This is such an easy decorating technique that even small children can help make them! Simply whip up some vanilla cupcakes and let them cool. Next you want a white frosting. I used cream cheese because, well I am a cream cheese junkie! The frosting needs to be above room temperature. This can be achieved by a few seconds in the microwave. You want the frosting very soft, NOT runny. If it is runny it will just slide off the cupcake.
These were a great hit with not only my children, but our neighbors! Image how surprised and impressed folks will be the next time you bring desert to a function if you set down a tray of these cute, creative, yummy cupcakes!
