The ideal cupcake recipe for children
The fact that they are means for kids do not mean it's an easy job to prepare these cupcakes. Kids like sweet tasting and good looking things. Kids love good looking things mixed with colors and so forth. This is a very important thing to factor in when preparing the cupcakes and hence you should gather every important ingredient that will develop a mouth watering cupcake. 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. This being the case, you should ensure that your cakes maintain the small round size that cup cakes are known for.
As opposed to the other designs, cup cakes meant for kids must have designs, mix of colors and decorations on them. 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. The kids won't refuse to eat them since they love cup cakes; it's just that the whole partying mood will have been dulled by the lack of color. 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. The only difference is that muffins are usually places in special muffin tins to give them that trademark look.
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. Hold the cup cake at the bottom when applying the frostings so that they do not disfigure it. The types of decorations to apply vary a lot, but should you go with juicy fruit as your choice, use it immediately before serving 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. This is because kids will usually be amused by tiny but funny illustrations. Don't go for complex designs, a simple flower, a soldier, a car and so forth are things that will mesmerize them. On top of all this, you can randomly scatter chocolate or icing chippings on top of the cup cakes just for beautification purposes.
