Wheat and Milk
You will need:
3 TBSP room temperature butter
1/3 cup water
4 TBSP room temperature butter
4 TBSP solid vegetable shortening
2 cups powdered sugar
2 TBSP milk
8 baking liners (not included)
Adults: Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 8 muffin cups with baking liners (not included).
Kids Be sure to wash hands. Cooking can be messy work. You might want to wear a smock or apron.
Kids: Combine cupcake mix, butter, water, and egg* in mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat just until well-combined. Divide batter evenly among 8 baking liners.
Adults: Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove cupcakes from oven and allow to cool completely before frosting. Kids: Assemble aprons by interlocking ends and sit one cupcake in each apron.
Kids: Beat butter and shortening on HIGH until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. HINT: Vegetable shortening is recommended to keep frosting somewhat stiff for fur detailing, but butter can be substituted if frosting is kept chilled as you work. Add frosting mix and powdered sugar and beat on LOW just until combined. Add milk and beat on HIGH until creamy. Frosting will be somewhat stiff.
Adults: Cut 1 1/2 inches off the tip of the piping bag. Drop decorating tip into the bag. Push down firmly (half of tip should be exposed). Insert bag into a tall glass and pull down over the edge of the glass to hold it open. Use a spatula to fill piping bag with frosting. Twist the end of the bag to close.
Kids: Hold piping bag so tip is approximately 1/8-inch above the surface of cupcake. Squeeze piping bag while pulling up slowly to create fur, and when fur is long enough, stop squeezing and pull tip away. Cover surface of cupcake. Repeat to decorate remaining cupcakes. Place 2 monster eye picks** in each cupcake, arrange on a serving platter, and enjoy!
**Remove picks prior to eating.
