First, you will need a regular cake mix, of your choice of flavors, and the ingredients to prepare it according to the normal directions. You will also need one Hershey's Kiss for each cupcake. I happened to have a wonderful assortment of flavors on hand, and that made for a delightful smorgasbord of choices! Unwrap the Kisses, and place the little paper "flag" inside the cupcake liner so it sticks out the top. Fill 2/3 with batter, then gently press in one Kiss, and bake as usual. No need to add additional time. The Kiss will sink in and give a super surprise center! Let cool and frost.
For my recipe card above, you will see that I did the recipe on my computer, and used Crafty Secrets adorable recipe birds stamps. They were stamped with Memento Ink, Tuxedo Black for the two at the top, and London Fog for the one over the lettering, creating the illusion of it being in the background, and not obscuring the typing. All images were colored with Copic markers.
Create a cupcake topper with two punches, sandwiching a toothpick in the middle, using foam dimensionals. Can you see the Kisses flag here? This is a plain Kiss... the Dark Chocolate say "Dark", the Almond say "Almond", etc. There are LOTS of different flavors... I had 7 different kinds today!
Here is my cupcake dessert stand for Father's Day, featuring the Necktie downloads from Shindig Parties To Go that we Buzzed about last Friday! Didn't they turn out SO CUTE?!
Wednesday the HoneyBees will be ready to share all sorts of Food, Glorious Food with you, and we hope you will be thinking of what you will want to create to share, too!
