I’m SO excited about this post! It’s my first ‘recipe’ post but I thought it was the most adorable set of cupcakes I’ve seen in a long time. Additionally, my latest focus has been on life skills and what better task to do with your kids than baking……we are a gluten-free family so I’m going to use my GF cupcake recipe to make the cupcakes and then load the top with creepy eyeballs!
PLUS: While we are on the topic of eyeballs, here’s a link to one of my most popular posts~ Vision, It’s More Than Meets the Eye!
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3-4 cups icing sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2-3 tablespoons milk or heavy cream
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
