If you’re looking for a fun activity in the kitchen for your kids this October, why not make some easy Jack-o-Lantern cupcakes with them?
It only takes a few ingredients, but will result in a morning or afternoon of fun and memories for parents and kids alike.
Makes one dozen
1 pouch Pillsbury Funfetti Orange All Star Cupcake & Cake Mix
• ingredients to make cupcakes (2/3 cup water, 1/4 cup oil, 2 egg whites)
Mini chocolate chips for decorating
Make cupcakes according to package instructions, allow to cool, let children poke the mini chocolate chips with tips facing inward toward cupcakes to decorate eyes and mouths to design Jack-o-Lanterns.
How easy is that?!
I used California Kitchenware Butterfield Silicone Cupcake Molds (Set of 12) to make mine.
The liners were easy to remove from the cupcakes after garnishing and no grease or flour was needed before baking.
The cupcakes baked nice and evenly.
Very little residue was left in the liners afterward and they are really simple to clean up.
