Baking Instructions

  1. Cut the fruit leather lengthwise into ⅛" wide strips. Tint the vanilla frosting pale yellow with the yellow food coloring. Spoon 2 Tbsp. yellow frosting into a small freezer bag. Spoon the chocolate frosting into a small freezer bag. Press out the excess air and seal the bags.
  2. Place the yellow sugar in to a small shallow bowl. Frost the tops of 4 cupcakes with a mound of the yellow frosting and make smooth. Roll the tops of the frosted cupcakes into the yellow sugar to cover completely. Repeat with the remaining frosting and sugar.
  3. Snip a very small corner from the bags with the yellow and chocolate frosting. Pipe an “X” shape near one edge of the sugared cupcakes. Insert the mini chocolate chips, pointed end down, at the end of each chocolate line. Pipe a dot of the yellow frosting along the opposite edge and attach the cereal “O”’s as the holder. Arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter with the tops all facing in the same direction. Carefully insert strips, cutting at different lengths, of the fruit leather into the openings as the string that connects the bells.

flavored frostings

flavored frostings

For years I have used your white frosting for many baking projects by coloring or flavoring it. My favorite is to use a "jello" packet to flavor and color the frosting. I have used up to four different flavors with one can. Just remember to add only 1 packet per can, so if you want 2 colors/flavors use half packet, 4 colors/flavors 1/4 packet to the divided frosting. The frosting flavors are only limited to your imagination.

Spraying The Cake Pans

Spraying The Cake Pans

Before you pour the batter in your cake pan, remember to spray-evenly the bakers joy cooking spray. If you spray it evenly, your cake will not stick to the pan, and they will pop out beautifully
