Cross Cupcakes

filed under: Cupcakes on April 24, 2011


They are easy, have a big impact, and are absolutely heavenly.


I am so happy that there is a way to share the message of the cross with my kids… in sugar.

If I could just translate every major lesson my kids need to learn into an easy and simplified cake version my life would be  much less complicated.

And everyone I know would weigh 300 lbs.

Maybe I will have to re-think my “Life Lessons in Cake” theory.

To make these Cross Cupcakes:

1 batch Chocolate Cupcakes

Melt some chocolate in a baggie or piping bag, and pipe out a few crosses onto a piece of wax paper or parchment.

Let them harden for a few minutes in the freezer or half hour on the counter.

Spread thin layer of chocolate frosting on cupcake, then dip into a bowl of heath chips.

Insert chocolate cross into cupcake.

You may need to go back in and add some extra Heath chips.




And I do hope that you do.

      Hi Brenda! I found a template online, I think it was SkiptomyLou, and traced out the template onto paper. Then just cut out and taped around cupcake! 🙂
