Cooking With Kids – St Patrick’s Day edition plus linky
Happy St. Patrick’s Day edition of Cooking With Kids. Today we are baking cupcakes, with a twist. We’ll call these Pot of Gold cupcakes. Oh and I have a giveaway open to Canadians today. So read to the end and let’s get cooking or baking. Yummy!
Well, look at that. Oddly my cupcakes were so pretty the youngest didn’t want to eat them. This time all we did was make a batch of cupcakes from a Betty Crocker box. I let Ainsley be in charge on this one, so we tossed baking gumdrops into the batter and heart sprinkles and baked up 2 dozen cupcakes with hidden treasure inside. Then we made a batch of green icing.
Icing is simple:
Icing sugar, margarine or butter and a spoonful of water or so.
Then we added the rainbows. Braided twizzlers.
We tossed a few stars and sprinkles on top and then we also added M&Ms.
We finally have something to add. Ms R can be a bit particular about what she likes so I don’t tend to get creative often. On St. Patrick’s Day we had Cucumbers in Dijon Dip (note Miss R really doesn’t like spicy things).
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1. Cut full cucumber into coin size slices
2. Combine Mayonnaise and mustard in a small bowl. Mix until well blended.
3. Dip your cucumber coins in the dip.
Miss R loved this.
