Easy DIY Cupcake Toppers

My twins are turning 7!!!  Planning their party just gets more detailed with each turn.  I needed to find cupcake toppers for a class party and couldn't find Angry Birds anywhere.  At least, yesterday afternoon when I searched a few stores.  I decided I would make my own.

Homemade Cake Release

I am forever having my cakes stick to my bundt pan.  Always!  It never fails.  Whenever I want to bake a bundt cake I am both filled with excitement and dread.  Now, there are no worries!  I remembered my step daughter, Carla,  told me about making your own cake release and I have finally made it!  This recipe has been around forever, I don't know why I haven't been using it before now.  It was such a relief to see my little bundt cakes come out of the pan without sticking.  Love this!  Just brush the cake release in your pan and wait for your perfect cake to come out of the oven.  Use them with my Sour Cream Pound Cake, Lemon Fizz Cake, Cooked Apple Coffee Cake, Carrot Cake .. everything you bake!  Use what you want and leave the rest in the refrigerator.  Now, get out your bundt pan and bake away!

Quinoa and Flax Seed Chocolate Cupcakes with Chocolate Ganache

I am trying to incorporate healthier recipes in our diet.  The boys pediatrician said I could cut out gluten and and dairy to help with one of the twins over active behavior and my oldest short attention span and forgetfulness.  This is my first change and my boys really like them!  They have a slightly different taste and I'm not certain if it is because of the quinoa flour or flax seed.  I did find they taste better after they have cooled completely.  The addition of dark chocolate chips and dark chocolate ganache was a plus.   Hope you like them.  My boys have asked for them again....already!  You can find the recipe on Examiner.com.  I would love if you would subscribe to my articles there.  ~love and hugs~
