Our United States cupcakes! We are so proud of them! They kept a few of my kids’ noses in atlas and maps and looking online for cool things about the states they want to visit someday. And talk about a fun way to learn state recognition–they have loved trying to guess each state on each cupcake.
It started with a yellow buttermilk cupcake recipe (a little less sugar and a secret ingredient of a splash of apple cider vinegar to milk instead of buttermilk).
Then fluffy vanilla frosting (which I substituted vanilla for almond extract–so yummy) was piped on top.
It was tricky deciding with each state how to place it on the cupcake so the most important sides were still showing. And our only tragedy was poor Idaho. It lost its top but it still kinda looks like itself.
