Awesome Earth Day Cupcakes

Awesome Earth Day Cupcakes

Earth Day comes but once a year and even though we like to celebrate the Earth all year round here teacher me just can’t help herself and I love to make these Earth Day inspired cupcakes each year!


I started making these cupcakes my first year teaching and they were such a hit that I’ve made them every year since.  Even when I left my job as a teacher to be a nanny.  And then what I left that job to be a substitute teacher.  And now that I’m moving on from being a substitute teacher I STILL have the urge to make these!  And what’s even better is that I’ve finally perfected a frosting technique.

One that doesn’t involve two piping bags and lots of frosting all over my fingers and the counter and, that one time, the cabinets.  The best part is that this is totally a recipe that gets the kids in the kitchen!  Which might result in frosting all over the cabinets no matter how easy this awesome technique is.
