Are you ever sorry you started something? I tried to make my little Beanes happy with these mummy cupcakes.
Butter Beane has been walking around the house for two days now saying "Mummy, Mummy".
He won't quit. This was cute at first and I was thrilled he seemed to appreciate the mummy cupcakes.
Then it got sort of old. Also, he wants to dress up as a mummy for Halloween. So we are hearing a lot about mummys right now. I will be sort of glad for Halloween to come and go.
I saw some version of these adorable mummy cupcakes somewhere in blog land. I can't remember where I originally saw the idea.
Anyway, these cute mummy cupcakes are super easy and my boys loved them!
I made some pumpkin cupcakes and then used some cream cheese frosting and decorative candy eyes and viola`.
I used this recipe for the pumpkin cupcakes:
2 cups Bisquick Mix
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin , not pumpkin pie mix
Heat oven to 350 and spray cupcake liners with cooking spray. In a bowl, beat all ingredients on low for 30 seconds, scraping bowl frequently. Then beat on medium for 2 minutes scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into cupcake liners. Bake for 18-22 minutes. Or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
For the cream cheese icing:
3 oz softened cream cheese (I used Touffuti cream cheese)
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened (I used Flieshman's unsalted)
1 Tablespoon milk (soy)
1 Teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, milk and vanilla with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in powdered sugar on low speed until smooth. Add more sugar or milk, as needed, to get the consistency you like.
I dotted some of the icing on the back of the eyes and stuck them on the cupcakes. Then I piped on the rest of the icing in random strips.
I think they turned out pretty cute.
