Fun fact – did you know Google is actually a number? Yes, it is. It is the number 1 followed by 100 zero’s. Seriously, look it up.
It’s spelled differently, though, (googol) but it is a number and it has quickly become my 4 year old’s FAVORITE number. Example – “Could I please have a googol M&M’s?” or “Mom, I am thinking of a number between one and a googol, can you guess?”
My personal favorite is “Mom, I love you a googol” . AWWWW, yes, I know, very very sweet…not grammatically correct, but hey, we’ll let that one slide.
Last year my other little guy was in kindergarten and told his teacher that googol was a number and she told him it wasn’t. He came home all sorts of bent out of shape…ahh, the public school system 😉
So, you see, here is my issue: made some cupcakes today and thought that I was brilliant, but lo and behold, Google has stolen my thunder.
I will share these with you because maybe you, like I, are out of the proverbial loop.
I love these because they are cute and EASY!
Here’s what you need:
1 box of cake mix
2 cans vanilla frosting
mini chocolate chips
ziplock bag (or piping bag)
That’s it!Bake your cupcakes as directed, Let cool.
Cut the corner off of a large ziplock. Load up you ziplock with your frosting and blob on in the shape of a ghost.
I am pretty sure that “blob” is the culinary term for this 😉
It certainly isn’t an exact science.
Next, take your mini chocolate chips and press them into the frosting backwards for your eyes and mouth.
Initially I tried using a larger chocolate chip for the mouth but it looked like the ghost was screaming at me…no bueno. Ghosts are creepy enough I certainly do not need them screaming at me. (the cupcakes that came up on the google search had screaming ghosts, so mine are slightly different)You’re done!
I guarantee your little ones will love these (and bigger ones too!)
So, while I had some cupcakes made I decided to play around with some of the new sprinkles I bought…these are also easy.
Just frost your cupcake with a knife and spread it around as smooth as you can get it.
Dump your sprinkles into a bowl and dip your cupcakes in getting them covered with sprinkles & garnish as you’d like.
