Father's Day Cupcakes


Girlie Girl Cupcakes is thriving!  My 14 year old daughter and her friend have been continuing to create and sell batches of cupcakes while still managing to serve at Vacation Bible School, prepare for their dance recitals, and find time to relax by the pool.  Their latest creation is a batch of Father's Day cupcakes for a man that loves football.


To make this batch of cupcakes they first cut tiny footballs and jerseys out of fondant and added details with edible marking pens.  While the fondant adornments were drying on a cooling rack, they baked a batch of vanilla cupcakes, and whipped up some of their mouthwatering butter cream frosting.   They have found that in order to create their signature swirl of icing the consistency of this butter and confectioner's sugar mixture has to be not too thin and not too thick.  They work together until it is perfect for piping.  Then, when the cupcakes are fully cooled, they pipe on the frosting using a large star tip (Wilton 1M).  For this order they tinted half of the icing blue and left the remainder buttery white.  Lastly they perched a fondant football or #1 Dad jersey on the top of each fully iced cupcake.  


When these young entrepreneurs aren't baking they are fine tuning their business plan.  They are creating a scrapbook to showcase past Girlie Girl Cupcakes orders and are putting all of their Math skills to use as they calculate cost and profits.   I hope that the father who receives these sweet cupcakes will be as delighted as the girls who created them.  Happy Father's Day!
