Angelina's Yummy Curious George Cupcakes
Angelina saw a recipe video yesterday on Nick JR . com. She was so excited to make these and kept watching the 30sec video. I told her I would watch the video and I would see if we can do it. Well all it showed ya was how to decorate a cupcake with a Dora face on it. It was a very cute idea, but a lot more involved then they put on. LOL
Instead of Dora I decided to try to decorate it so it looked like Curious George. To do the chocolate part, you melts chocolate chips in a glass bowl, then transfer the chocolate to a Ziploc bag, snip the corner and you have the perfect tool to write/draw with. Unless you can draw your character free hand with just the chocolate, you first need to draw what you want on a piece of paper, then put wax paper on top, and draw right on the wax paper. Then after your done, put it in the freezer to harden, once hard it will peel off and you can put it on the iced cupcake. All that was what they show you on the video she found. And it does actually work. :-)
We didn't add eyes or a smiley face, and Angelina was perfect fine without it. I will add that Angelina did all the work in making the actual cupcakes. She is quite the baker!!!
Hope you enjoyed our little adventure for today!
