My foodie daughter will turn 5 next month and is absolutely obsessed with the "Big Top Cupcake" mold (as seen on TV) she has been begging me to get one for her birthday party - walking around the house quoting the infomercial "it's not just a boring old cupcake - it's 25 times bigger - for more fun!"
So, we went to Hobby Lobby today (with our 40% off coupon - b/c have you ever noticed that their baking stuff NEVER goes on sale?) Anyway... I wanted to try it out before Halloween and her birthday a few times (as you can plainly see - I have no decoration skills either - I'll need to work on that too!)
Today we made Pumpkin Spice sweet bread and decorated it with Cream Cheese Frosting - so delicious - I especially love that today just happens to be the coldest day yet - perfect!
Cream Cheese Frosting
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 cup white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
In a small bowl beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form; set aside.
In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth, then fold in whipped cream.
