I am so sorry I have not posted a blog in a while, but I have been busy! So here is a cupcake recipe (Finally!) to make up for it.
Tuesday, February 28, 2012 was FCAT Writes – a state writing test that is graded by the county, not even my own teacher. All 4th graders have to write for 45 minutes about the same topic. I didn’t really like the topic, but I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings. So since it was FCAT Writes, I wanted to make a cupcake treat for my class.
About a week ago, I saw a show called “Unique Sweets – Childhood Favorites” and saw a recipe for Snickerdoodle Cupcakes. They sounded good to me because Snickerdoodles are my favorite cookies and I couldn’t stop thinking about them all week.
First, I made Vanilla Cupcakes – you can make your favorite Vanilla Cupcakes. Before you put them in the oven, you need to sprinkle Sugar in the Raw and Cinnamon over the top of each cupcake. For the cinnamon and sugar mixture, I used about 1/4 Cup of Sugar in the Raw and about 1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon.
When they are done, you make Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting – I just Googled “Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting Recipe” and found one that sounded good to me.
After you frost them, sprinkle more of the Sugar in the Raw and Cinnamon on top of the frosting – and Enjoy!
My class loved them and I hope you will too. They taste JUST LIKE a Snickerdoodle.
