Halloween Cupcakes with Real Whipped Cream Vanilla Frosting
It is really starting to feel like Fall around here. I have decorated for Halloween (early, I know), and the temperatures are getting cooler by the day. I think what I love most about the Halloween season is the colors, and pumpkins. I don’t celebrate the religious side of Halloween per say, but have always loved to dress up, and see people’s homes decorated…that goes for Christmas too!
Since Halloween is coming quickly, I have been trying to bake spooky treats that encompass the festivity. My latest baking creation is not too much of a recipe, but more of an inspiration for anyone looking for a great Halloween Cupcakes with Real Whipped Cream Vanilla Frosting. I did cut corners and used boxed cake mix, but the frosting, well that is just scrumptious.
I have been working with the folks at Oriental Trading Company for some recipe, and craft projects for the upcoming months. I am big on cutesy decor, so the Halloween Picks really caught my attention. For just $4.50, you get a box of 48 assorted bats, pumpkins, ghosts, and spiders. These are perfect for a Halloween party tray, baked treats or crafts. I thought the price was reasonable, and the quality is great. These picks really dressed up my Halloween Cupcakes with Real Whipped Cream Vanilla Frosting, and had people oohing, and ahhing.
For the real whipped cream vanilla frosting I used the following:
- 1/3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
- 1 pint of heavy whipping cream
Add all three ingredients to a Kitchen Aid bowl, or regular bowl, and mix on high for 3-5 minutes. Once you see stiff peaks forming, the cream is ready. It is easy to work with, and lasts for 3 days in the fridge. However, it may start to turn back into a liquid if kept out at room temperature. There is also a spoilage factor so these would have to be eaten rather quickly since they are made from dairy.
Overall, I hope you are inspired to get into the kitchen and create some Halloween Cupcakes with Real Whipped Cream Vanilla Frosting. You friends, and loved ones will LOVE the real whipped cream!
