This weekend I had the privilege of working with volunteers from our troop's Family Readiness Group (FRG) to make and sell over 400 cupcakes! If you know me, you know I like to go big, so this was a challenge that was right in my lane.
What I love most about this is how willing and supportive the soldiers and spouses are to give of their time, money, and waistlines to a good cause. We had helpers who put in anywhere from 3 hours to over 20 hours on this project!!
As promised to several members of the troop, I've compiled the recipes we used for our five flavors. We had Chocolate Mint, Peanut Butter Cup, Birthday Cake, Pumpkin with Orange Cream Frosting, and Monster Cakes.
The recipes are uploaded to Scribd so you can click the download button in the preview panels to save PDF files directly to your computer. This is my first time to use Scribd to share files, so there may be some changes as I learn the best way to operate. ;)
BIG NOTE: THERE IS AN OMISSION IN THE PB CHOCOLATE CUPCAKE RECIPE. IT'S MISSING 1 CUP of CREAMY PEANUT BUTTER IN THE ICING. I can't remember my scribd password, so change that on your copy. THanks

And for the googly-eyed monster cupcakes...skip on over to Annie's Eats for a tutorial on those. We used our birthday cake recipe and tinted the icing purple. They are cute with or without the M&M's eyes, too.
Did you get to enjoy some of these fabulous treats? If so, comment below. We'd LOVE to hear from you. :)
