Crazy For Cup-Cakes

Pin It

Cup-cakes are so “trendy” right now – & what’s not to love about them, they look good & taste even better!

This month at my Stamp Club meeting, we made a card featuring our fabulous “Crazy for Cupcakes” Stamp Set.  I got the idea from a class I went to at Jacquelyn Pederson's but I mad a few alterations.

The insert with the tab at the top has an Emergency Chocolate Cake recipe.  I also played around with this as the original recipe was a bit dry & hard.

Of course we had to “ice” the cup-cakes with Dazzling Diamonds & the cherries were made to “pop” using Crystal Effects.

Emergency Chocolate Cake

4 Tbsp Flour

1/2 tsp Baking Powder

4 Tbsp Sugar

2 Tbsp Cocoa

1 Small Egg

3 Tbsp Milk

3 Tbsp Oil

Splash of Vanilla

3 Tbsp Chocolate Chips

Mix all dry ingredients in a large mug.  Pour in all wet ingredients and mix well.  Add Choc Chips & mix again.  Microwave for 2 1/2 –3 mins.

I just made your recipe for Emergency Chocolate Cake for my husband--during a commercial while watching the Olympics! He thought it was really yummy. Your card is so cute--I hope to CASE it sometime, but don't have the set. Just wanted to say thanks.
