Last-Minute Patriotic Star Cupcakes
So, we're off to a picnic in a few hours for Memorial Day and I'm thinking . . . "help! I didn't plan anything FUN!" And then I remember I AM A DEMARLE AT HOME REP! I can pull together ANYTHING!
So here's what me and the kids did:
1 Yellow Cake Mix
1 can (approx. 7oz.) Mandarin Oranges (with juice)
Mix in Mixing Bowl with Whisk and pour into Flexipan of choice (make sure Flexipan is on the Perforated Baking Tray). We used the Mini-Muffin Tray and the Star Tray. Bake at 350 for approx. 20 min. (depends on size of tray/mold - test with a toothpick)
8oz. cream cheese (let sit on counter until at room temperature before mixing)
1 tsp. lemon flavoring
2 cups Powdered Sugar (more or less to your taste).
1/8 cup milk (pour a little at a time to make sure it doesn't get too runny)
Mix in electric mixer in order above. Use pastry bag and tips to swirl onto cooled cupcakes. For the patriotic part, we used red sprinkles and blueberries in the middle. So cute and delicious!
