Looking for a way to show some teacher love this week? “YOU Take the Cake” Cupcakes may be just what you are looking for!
This morning on a news show a woman shared teacher appreciation gifts. She said the average cost of a gift from a child to a teacher was $30.00….oh my. For my 5 kids that would have been a whopping $150.00 “thank you” bill. No way!!!!
“YOU Take the Cake” Cupcakes
Show them you love them with a little treat you can afford to make for all the teachers, principal and staff. “Anything but an apple is appreciated,”… taken from a teacher’s survey.
I made these for our church young women for a girl’s camp treat. Here’s the DIY scoop:
Split 2 cupcakes per cup, (fill and frost, I made cream cheese frosting), layer in a clear cup. Top with sprinkles and enclose in a clear cellophane bag. Insert a clear fork handle in the cupcake and tie with curling ribbon. Insert a little tag in the fork-tines and you are good to go!
A sweet gift you can share with teachers, friends, or birthday boys and girls, "YOU Take the Cake" Cupcakes are always appreciated!
Recipe type: Dessert
24 cupcakes (2 split cupcakes per cup)
For Cream Cheese Frosting
4 ounces unsalted butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
food coloring if desired
Use your favorite sprinkles, nuts, candies, coconut
12 cellophane bags
For Cream Cheese Frosting
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer.
With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Add food coloring if desired
Split cupcakes and layer with Cream Cheese Frosting in a clear cup. I'd suggest you color the frosting to match ribbon, or sprinkles. Repeat the layering with the other cupcake and more frosting. Top with sprinkles, nuts, or candy. Push a clear fork handle down into the cupcake. Attach your card to the tines in the fork. Place in a clear cellophane bag and tie up with curling ribbon or twine.
