Simple cake cup recipes that kids will enjoy making

Both my girls have helped in the kitchen because they are quite young.I think that by making child-friendly recipes your kids actually get to see that cooking can be fun, but also delicious.
Most children know I love cupcakes. We always used the normal size cupcake tins when children help. The small muffin tins to make cupcakes that are too small for young hands to handle.
The easiest way to make cupcakes for younger children is to start with a boxed cake mix. This recipe first starts with a box of Devil's Food cake mix. Make batter according to box directions. This recipe is a delicious pasta and easy for kids to make:
Combine eight ounces cream cheese, 1 / 3 cup of sugar and an egg.Mix until blended. Then mix with six grams of chocolate chips.
Line your muffin tin with papers and fill each about 1 / 3 full. Now put a spoonful of cream cheese mixture stacked on top of batter. Fill muffin the rest of the way, which leaves some room for increase. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. If you want to add frosting, I always bought already mixed glaze that children can spread.
Another great cupcake ideas for children is to use ice cream cones.Buy ice cream cones flat on the ground.
Use a cake mix and prepare the cupcakes according to package directions. Place paper liners in muffin tin. Fill each muffin tin two-thirds over the place and the cone upside down and put on top of batter. Bake 18-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Test with a toothpick to make sure the cupcakes are done. After the cupcakes have cooled, remove paper liner and cold. Add enamel decorations, such as M & M's, Skittles and either cereal or rainbow sprinkles.
I've also seen this recipe a bit reverse. The recipes tell an ice cream about 2 / 3 of the way through the batter to fill, stand upright on a baking sheet and bake. I have not done this way, but I see it on many websites and blogs.
If you buy white frosting, you can mix a few drops of dye in the glaze, so children can be the frosting almost any color they want. You can do almost everything on top of glaze. My children have always enjoyed gummy worms. Add some of it onto a green glaze and the kids just love it. You can also jelly sweets on top.
We once had a birthday party where I make tons of decorations in different scales and let the children come with their own combination of color icing and decorations. Some children are so creative in their designs. You can cut strips drop into smaller pieces so children can create bugs and butterflies. Truly, the possibilities are endless on how to use other candies decorated cupcakes.
Try making cupcakes with your children. This is a great way to get them in the kitchen and cooking
