Halloween Care Package for the Troops with Popcorn Ball Recipe

October 2nd, 2013 by admin

Bloggers Around the World Supporting the TroopsHalloween Care Package for Troops
Bloggers around the World Supporting the Troops
is a Deployment Care Package Program sponsored by Betsy Eves of JavaCupcake.com, the wife of SGT David Eves.  Each month, a blogger from the either the USA or Europe will create a care package with 2nd Platoon in mind.  It will be decorated with a fun theme and will be filled with lots of goodies!

Popcorn Ball Recipe and Goodie Bags
TRICK OR TREAT, SMELL MY FEET,
GIVE US SOMETHING GOOD TO EAT!
We choose one of our favorite times of the year to participate in this program; October. With Halloween almost here, our care package was designed with the childhood chant of “Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet, Give Us Something Good to Eat” in mind. Our theme was for soldiers with a sweet tooth, a love for cozy toes and for the kid in all of us who adores this Spook-tacular holiday. We enclosed goodie bags for each soldier filled with candy and toys, brand new white socks, popcorn balls (see popcorn ball recipe below) and more.

Care Package for the Troops

Take a peek inside the package:
-       Goodie Bags with candy, pencils and toys
(including glow in the dark spiders, parachuting skeletons and
vampire fangs for a little dress up fun).
-       Popcorn Balls
-       White Ankle Socks
- Peanut Butter Taffy (sealed in zip lock in case of allergies)

The package was easy to make with a trip to our local party supply store and Target. We picked up festive bags to fill with the goodies and a variety of candies that wouldn’t melt in transit. It can take approximately 3 weeks to get to the troops so we wanted to ensure we sent items that could sustain the journey. We found jolly ranchers, gummy lifesavers, laffy taffy, nerds, skittles and more.

We also thought some fun little toys would be good to add so we found some spooky glow in the dark spiders and vampire fangs. But our favorite were the little parachuting skeletons. Growing up I always remember how fun the little parachute men were so thought they would be good fun. We also wanted something useful and thought white socks for the soldiers would be handy out in the dessert and went nicely (and a bit tongue in cheek) with our “Trick or Treat, Smell our Feet” theme. We also added a pencil that was decorated with Halloween colors and themes. We rolled each pencil into the bag top and sealed it with tape so that none of the contents would fall out in transport.

Above is a photo of the 2nd Platoon, Fox Troop, 2/2 Cavalry Regiment before deployment when they were in Vilseck, Germany. Photo was courtesy of Javacupcake.com. We enjoyed putting this package for the troops and we hope the troop enjoys their Halloween Care Package. We thank them for all they do.

If you’d like the recipe for the popcorn balls we made using a Paula Deen recipe, check it out below.

Apple Spice Cupcake Recipe

Spiced Apple Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
Cupcake adapted from Tracey’s Culinary Adventure’s , frosting adapted from Martha Stewart
Cupcakes
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs plus 1 large egg yolk, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 tablespoons boiled cider
1/2 cup whole milk, at room temperature

Frosting
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 oz cream cheese (reduced fat is fine), at room temperature
2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 F. Line cupcake pan with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt until combined. Add the butter and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs and then the egg yolk, 1 at a time, and beat well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract. In a measuring cup, whisk the milk and boiled cider together. With the mixer on low, alternately add the dry ingredients in 3 additions and the milk/cider combo in 2, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients and beating just until the batter is combined.

Divide the batter among the liners, filling each about 2/3 to 3/4 full. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cupcakes cool for just a few minutes before removing them to the racks to cool completely.

To make the frosting: Add the butter and cream cheese to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. With the mixer on low, gradually add the confectioners’ sugar (stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl once or twice) until completely incorporated. Add the cinnamon and vanilla and mix until combined.

To assemble the cupcakes: Transfer the frosting to a pastry bag fitted with a tip. Pipe frosting into a swirl on each cupcake. Drizzle with additional boiled cider and/or garnish with a caramel square, if desired.

Makes 12-14 cupcakes

Cupcake Wrapper Interview with Lyndsey Fagerlund

August 26th, 2013 by admin

We’re excited to showcase one of our favorite cupcake wrapper interview clients Lyndsey Fagerlund. Lyndsey started to use our product many years ago and is a truly creative woman. She also is a photographer who loves to bake. Learn a bit more about Lyndsey below and pick up some great tips on how to created a wedding photograph cupcake tower and a tasty cupcake frosting recipe.

Cupcake Wrapper Interview with Lyndsey Fagerlund

1.     Tell us a little bit about your company and how you got your start? I started my photography business, Lyndsey Fagerlund Photography, in 2009. I started honing my skills by taking photos of the cupcakes I created. Now I love photographing cupcakes at weddings and children’s birthday parties! I am based in Salt Lake City, and often work in Seattle and Los Angeles. I specialize in authentic, happy images that show lots of emotion. I still love to create cupcakes for my kids. Making up fun frosting flavors and creating themed decorations are my favorite part!

Finding_Nemo_Cupcakes

2.      What’s the most memorable event you’ve done? This is a hard one, because I have a client in Los Angeles that has hired me to photograph the most amazing events! I would say it’s a tie between their Mermaid/Pirate and Candyland themed events. The Mermaid event had a live mermaid and 2 life-size mermaid cakes for their twins! They also had the Sprinkles Cupcakes truck on site handing out their delish cupcakes. The Candyland party was just amazing, with every single candy detail you could imagine. The kids played Candyland on a life-size board game with real characters, too. Their make-your-own cupcake stand was a hit!

Thing 1 Cupcake and Thing 2 Cupcake

3.     Knowing your love for cupcakes, what was your first childhood memory involving cupcakes? I don’t have a specific memory from when I was younger, but I do know I have always been a frosting person! My husband actually scrapes off some of his frosting (gasp!), but that just leaves more for me! My favorite memory involving cupcakes was a “cupcake par-tea” that my friend Kara Allen and I put together for our friends. We taught a little bit about frosting and decorating and everyone got to decorate their own cupcakes!

shark cupcakes
4.     What is your favorite cupcake flavor? Lemon, hands down!

5.     Any fun baking tips? I always encourage friends to play around a little bit! I know it’s said that you have to follow instructions exactly for baking, but as long as I make sure the basic ingredients are right, my creations have turned out pretty yummy! You can pick a vanilla cake mix if you are worried and just try adding something yourself! Frosting is the easiest to play around with. I love making lemon frosting from scratch.

6.     Just for fun; what is your favorite Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wrapper design? Definitely the Damask cupcake wrappers! I use them all the time! They are perfect for wedding cupcakes.

7.     Anything else you’d like to add? Frosting Recipe :)

Lemon Buttercream Frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened (do not substitute)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
Zest from 1 lemon
powdered sugar (approximately 4 to 5 cups)

Cream butter in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add vanilla, milk, salt, and lemon zest. Add 2 cups powdered sugar and blend, adding more powdered sugar to get the consistency you want. (To pipe the frosting, you’ll want at least 4 cups total. Just keep adding a cup at a time until it is thick enough.)

Vanilla Cupcakes (recipe from Joy of Baking):
Makes about 12 cupcakes
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup (130 grams) granulated white sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Zest of 1 large lemon (outer yellow skin)
1 1/2 cups (195 grams) all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup (60 ml) milk

Confectioners (Buttercream) Frosting:
2 cups (230 grams) confectioners sugar (icing or powdered sugar), sifted
1/2 cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk or light cream
Assorted food colors (if desired)

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.

In a separate bowl whisk together the lemon zest, flour, baking powder, and salt.

With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and milk, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Evenly fill the muffin cups with the batter and bake for about 17 – 20 minutes or just until set and a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. (Always check a few minutes before the stated baking time. Do not over bake or the cupcakes will be dry.) Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Once the cupcakes have completely cooled, frost with icing. If you want flat topped cupcakes then slice off the dome of each cupcake, with a sharp knife, before frosting. If you want to pipe the frosting, I like to use a large Wilton 1M star decorating tip. Cupcakes are best eaten the same day they are made, but they can be covered and stored for a few days.

Confectioners (Buttercream) Frosting: In an electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, cream the butter until smooth and well blended. Add the vanilla extract. With the mixer on low speed, gradually beat in the sugar. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the milk and beat on high speed until frosting is light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes). Add a little more milk or sugar, if needed. Tint the frosting with desired food color (I use the paste food coloring that is available at cake decorating stores and party stores).
