Baking Instructions

  1. Spread a thin layer of frosting on top of the cupcakes. Arrange 6 cupcakes in the shape of a mummy: 1 for the head, 2 for the arms and then 3 in a row for the body and feet. Repeat with the other 6 cupcakes.
  2. Place the marshmallows as shown in the step shot. For the face cut one half into a triangle for the nose and cut the other half in half lengthwise for the eye brow.
  3. Place the fruit leather strips haphazardly over the top of the marshmallows and cupcakes. Use a dab of water to help them stick.
  4. Spoon ½ cup the vanilla frosting into a small freezer bag. Tint the remaining 2 Tbsp. orange with the food coloring and spoon into a ziplock bag.
  5. Spread the tops of the cupcakes with the chocolate frosting. Snip a small corner, (1/16") from the bags with the frosting. Starting in the center, pipe spiral lines with the vanilla frosting over the top of the cupcake. Drag a toothpick lightly through the frosting from the center to the outer edge of cupcake. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes.
  6. Place the chocolate covered raisins randomly on top of web. Add the almonds for wings and 2 dots of orange frosting for the eyes.

"Don't Overbeat"

"Don't Overbeat"

I always beat any kind of batter really, really good so my product would be super delicious. Better than anyone else' s! but I noticed my cakes were not always as tall as theirs. I wouldn't ask why theirs were taller than mine. Found out why; beat only the time indicated on the box. Don't Overbeat!!!!

great wedding cake tiers

great wedding cake tiers

Great compliment getter when I'm baking wedding cakes. Instead of trimming the top of the layers off even with the baking pan as they teach in Wilton cake classes, I place a linen dish towel (used only for this) over the layer immediately after removing from the oven. I place a large cutting board over the towel, weight it down with something heavy & let steam 5 min. & remove . The layer is dense-moist-pound cake texture- easy to handle, stack, decorate & deliver . EASY TO CUT & SERVE !!!
