31 happy days… why you should bake cupcakes


It’s another day of the 31 days of happy little things friends, and here’s a delicious suggestion to improve your happy quota. Bake some cupcakes. A cupcake is a tiny celebration in a paper wrapper and they are almost guaranteed to make you smile.

I am a worthless cook and only somewhat competent baker.  I love making cupcakes so I try harder in the kitchen when they are on the menu. If you doubt the power of a cupcake just watch a child receive one the next time you are near a bakery or birthday party. Cupcake=instant happiness.  This week’s sweet treat is something special for fall.

Caramel mix in from Duncan Hines Frosting Creations was easy and great flavor!



Added fresh apples to the mix, and a little green food coloring to keep the traditional color scheme of a caramel apple when you take a bite.



 “Once you lick the frosting off a cupcake it becomes a muffin. Muffins are healthy. You’re welcome.”
