Cupcakes recipes for kids
Cupcakes, especially those made for kids are a very delicate thing to prepare. Kids like sweet tasting and good looking things. Kids love good looking things mixed with colors and so forth. It is very important to keep this in mind when preparing cup cakes for children and the negative reaction by the kids should not surprise you should you neglect to consider them. On top of the appealing look, kids are also attracted to cup cakes because of the fact that they can hold the cake in one hand and thus they're able to move around with it as they show it off to their friends. Do not be surprised that a child will resort to doing this as it is in their nature. With that in mind, you can go ahead and develop fancy cup cakes but ensure that they retain the small size that cupcakes are known for.
If you plan to prepare cup cakes for kids, ensure that you have a bright mood and are willing to play around with colors and various other funky designs. We do know of various cup cakes that are just plain brown, which is the color they have when they are just out of the oven. Baking plain brown cup cakes for kids might not be the best idea. It's just that they'll do so in a dull mood as they don't bring any kind of excitement to them. With the presence of coloring, icing, slices of chocolate here and there will greatly help to brighten their spirits. Ideally, a cup cake is baked just like any other cake; in terms of temperature and so forth. Of course they have their special muffin tins but other than that, the baking routine is the same.
Before you can begin the frosting process, it is advisable to let the cup cakes cool down first once you take them out of the oven. Try your best to hold the cup cake on its lower part when icing so that you don't dent it. Should you decide to use juicy fruit for the decorations; it is a good thing to place the fruit a little while before you serve the cup cakes. This is important so that you ensure that the color does not bleed into the frosting. Preparation of cup cakes meant for kids requires a lot of creativity. We all know that kids are amused by the smallest of funny things. So when you place a tiny icing soldier, flower design, small car and so forth, they are bound to be very amused. Tiny fruit slices, chocolate, little princess designs and so forth will leave them very excited and they'll always be talking about the cup cakes they ate at your place.
