It’s the day after Labor Day, which means that pretty much every kid in the country is back in school. *sad trombone* I never liked going back to school and I used to hate autumn because I’d associate it with heading back to school. I’mÂ still in school – and I like the first few days of a new school year. Nothing is too stressful yet. I am gleeful over my new highlighters and notebooks. It’s nice to see everyone and ask how their summers were. The first few days are great. But then the stress hits and I’m all like, “Noooo! Take this back! I don’t want this anymore! Make it stop! STAAAAAHP!” [threw in my Wisconsin accent in that sentence just for fun]
But cupcakes make everything better! I found these pressed sugar crayons at a local shop here in Milwaukee called Cook’s. Cook’s has every baking supply you’ll ever need. It is aÂ fantastic shop. Hope you’re all enjoying the first few days of this new season.
1 box cake mix of your choosing
Various paper liners
Buttercream icing or vanilla store-bought icing
Pressed sugar crayons [if you can’t find these at your local baking shop, do a Google search!]
There isn’t much to instruct here. Make the cupcakes according to box directions and frost with an icing of your choosing. I used sprinkles to give the cupcakes a little more dimension — and I topped them with the pressed sugar crayons. That’s it!
