    Behind the cupcake

    Theme/Children’s Book:

     

    Little Red Riding Hood

     

    Why did we pick this?

     

    We all had the idea of making red velvet cupcakes and little red riding hood was the only book we thought of that was red. Like who doesn't like little red riding hood? Red velvet is basically chocolate fancied up by adding red dye, it's bound to be good! Little Red Riding Hood has been our (most of us)  childhood favorite book. Of course we would pick that! It was a group effort picking this book, but other teams had the same red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting idea!

    Some lemon for some flavor and with some green sprinkles on top for added color. Yum! Watch out! The toy on top is not edible! It’s just for decoration!

     

    Video Production!

    Our group has supposedly stirred up drama with the EggHead Cupcakes. The video will include this drama plus all about how delicious our cupcakes are!

     

    Who’s making it?

    Jordan and Alex!Great friends who create nice videos together.

    When did we record this?

    About our logo;

     

    Our logo design is a large red circle with a red cupcake in the middle. “Lil Red Cupcakes” are written on the inside part of the circle

                At first we were going with just the supreme logo with a cupcake but, in the end we went with this circle design with the cupcake theme on it. We saw that other teams’ logo was based on the theme that they picked and we implemented the theme of our branding, “Supreme Cupcakes”, and the theme of our book, “Little Red Riding Hood”, and created this masterpiece.

                “We made the cupcake in the middle ‘cause this is cupcake wars.” stated Maliyah in our

    art department. “We made the red circle on the outside and wrote LiL’ Red Riding Hood because of Little Red Riding Hood.”

                Our final logo turned into this, the theme of our cupcake and our branding smushed together into the LiL’ Red Cupcakes (an obvious play on words on the Little Red Riding Hood books).

    Our people in our art department are:

    • Gabrielle
    • Mayliah
    • Cameron

     

    Our Recipe:

     

    This recipe was the simplest cupcake we could find in our intense research. A pretty nice and delicious recipe if you make it right!

    Since we were doing Little Red Riding Hood, “RED” Velvet cupcakes came to mind .

    Here is the recipe we selected for the red velvet cupcakes. You could even do it yourself:

        Our book is The Giving Tree. We chose this book because it’s a classic children’s book about kindness. If you haven’t read the book it’s about a tree and a little boy that grows with the tree. Our flavor is a classic loved by all Vanilla. The colors a green with a pretzel sticking out of it.

     

    Advertising

     

    The central marketing theme is that a young girl and her mom walk into a cupcake shop. However, there’s only one cupcake left when they enter. The mother doesn’t have enough money to pay for the cupcake and the baker smiles and out of an act of kindness says, “It’s on the house.”  And hands the mother the last cupcake.

    Actors: Brynna, Cassidy and, Layla.  

    Production dates: October 24th - 26th

    Logo

    Our logo is a cupcake with a bite taken out of it.  It says “Creative to the core.” on the bottom. The process was a fast and easy one, because we chose the Giving tree the creators (Ashlyn Fields, Tiani Pagaragon and, Soraya Deskins.) knew that it had to do something with an apple and of course a cupcake. They went through many different colors until it seemed to fit the picture.  

     

      Cupcake Recipe (Vanilla)

     

        1/4 cup salted butter softened

    1/4 cup vegetable oil

    3/4 cup sugar

    3/4 cup buttermilk room temperature

    2 large eggs room temperature

    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

    2 teaspoons of baking powder

    1/4 teaspoon salt

     

    We selected vanilla because like the giving tree it’s a classic that most people enjoy. In fact, about 39% of America says it’s their favorite flavor. Vanilla cupcakes often tend to be easier to add different flavors of icing on them.



    Stand Design  

    The stand design is supposed to be based off the final pages of the book. Which is when the tree is nothing more than a stump. The stand is to be made of cardboard and will be shaped like a tree. OUr creators are: Tyson, Jake And Ryan. It’s expected to hold about 15 cupcakes.

     

    Baking

    The cupcakes are being baked on December 14th. Our baker as followed is : Priscilla Ofosuhene. Some of The ingredients in the cupcakes are: Buttermilk, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, the usual. The decoration is a swirl of green icing topped with a pretzel stick and green sprinkles. The colors consists of: Just Red and white. They are meant to look like green apples.

    Snoop Dogg’s Blog

    ABOUT US;

    Our group name is the Snoop Doggs and we are doing our cupcake wars theme on the beloved children’s book series Snoopy. The people in this group are Cael, Ariat, Sierra, Aden, Ethan, Mary, Natalie, Mercedes, Justena, Hiba, and Michael. We chose this book because we all know that it is well-known and popular.

    THE CUPCAKE DESIGN;

    The recipe selection is a cookies and cream flavor cupcake and the colors are black and white. It was selected because it looked like the iconic character snoopy and mirrors his spotted fur. The design is snoopy’s house and is being made with yellow cake.The makers of this masterpiece are Seira,Hailey, and Michael. The size is standard and the materials are red icing, yellow icing, black foam, vanilla extract, toothpicks, and blue cupcake liners. The stand will hold twelve cupcakes. They are being backed on the week of the eleventh. We are happy to say that they look like snoopy and his house very much.

    COMMERCIAL THEME;

    The commercial theme is to show the original iconic character of Snoopy can cheer anyone up. The actors are giving a sad person a Snoopy cake to cheer them up. The actors’ names are Mercedes, Mary, and Natalie. The production dates are

    LOGO;

    The logo design was to be Snoopy sitting on top of his house doing what he normally does… getting lost in his imagination.But in the end,we made the logo Snoopy’s house with a sun in the sky with a cr. The reason for this particular design is that Snoopy’s house is the most memorable scene in his books and the cropping is because we want people to know that we make Snoopy cupcakes.

    RECIPE;

    The recipe selection is a cookies and cream one with yellow cake. This recipe was selected because it represents Snoopy’s character well. His attitude towards Charlie Brown (his ‘owner’) is way different from his attitude while daydreaming.

     

    THE STAND DESIGN;

     

    THE CUPCAKES;

    The Snoop Dogg’s cupcakes are being made as I speak ( or type) on December 14, 2018. The ingredients are yellow cake,and red, black, and white icing. The colors are red, black, and white and the decorations are Snoopy’s house.

    Maple Bacon Cupcakes

    (we’re called the little pigs so we have to have bacon cupcakes)

    FOR THE CUPCAKES:

     

    • 1½ cups Bacon
    • 4 tbsp Maple Syrup
    • Yellow cake mix
    • 3 eggs
    • wait vegetable oil
    • 1 cups water
    • 3 oz cream cheese
    • 1 cup unsalted butter
    • 3½ powdered sugar

     





     

    • FOR THE FROSTING:
    • 2 Sticks Butter softened
    • 1 1/4 Cups Confectioners Sugar
    • 1 Teaspoon Maple Extract
    • 1/2 Cup Bacon cooked and crumbled for garnishing
    • Pink food coloring to make the piggy part of our name

     

     

    FOR THE CUPCAKES:

     

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    • Prepare 24 muffin cups with liners or non stick spray.
    • In a large bowl use a whisk to combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon.
    • In a medium bowl using hand mixer, or bowl of stand mixer, beat together the butter, sugar, vanilla, and maple syrup until fluffy.
    • Add eggs to butter mixer one at a time, beating after each addition.
    • With mixer on low, add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture slowly. (I do this in thirds).
    • Add the milk with mixer still running, continue to mix just until combined. Fold in the crumbled bacon.
    • Scoop the cupcake batter into your muffin tins so that each cup is 3/4 full.
    • Bake for 18-25 minutes, until slightly golden.

     

    For the Cupcakes:

    In a large bowl beat together the softened butter, confectioners sugar, food coloring,  and maple extract until smooth and fluffy. Pipe onto cooled cupcakes and top with bacon as desired.

     

    Marshmallow Fondant (10 min)

     

    • 8 ounces miniature marshmallows (4 cups not packed, or half of a 16-ounce bag)
    • 1 pound powdered sugar (4 cups), plus extra for dusting
    • 2 tbsp. water
    • Food coloring or flavored extracts (optional)

     

    Steps to Make It

     

    • Dust your counter or a large cutting board with powdered sugar. Place the marshmallows and the water in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute, until the marshmallows are puffy and expanded.
    • Stir the marshmallows with a rubber spatula until they are melted and smooth. If some unmelted marshmallow pieces remain, return to the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds, until the marshmallow mixture is entirely smooth and free of lumps. If you want colored or flavored fondant, you can add several drops of food coloring or extracts at this point and stir until incorporated. If you want to create multiple colors or flavors from one batch of fondant, do not add the colors or flavors now. Instead, refer to step 6 below for instructions.
    • Add the powdered sugar and begin to stir with the spatula. Stir until the sugar begins to incorporate and it becomes impossible to stir anymore.
    • Scrape the marshmallow-sugar mixture out onto the prepared work surface. It will be sticky and lumpy, with lots of sugar that have not been incorporated yet―this is normal. Dust your hands with powdered sugar and begin to knead the fondant mixture like bread dough, working the sugar into the marshmallow with your hands.
    • Continue to knead the fondant until it smooths out and loses its stickiness. Add more sugar if necessary, but stop adding sugar once it is smooth―too much sugar will make it stiff and difficult to work with. Once the fondant is a smooth ball, it is ready to be used. You can now roll it out, shape it, or wrap it in cling wrap to use later. Well-wrapped fondant can be stored in a cool room or in the refrigerator and needs to be kneaded until supple before later use.
    • If you want to add coloring or flavoring to your fondant, (we do and we want it pink) flatten it into a round disc. You might want to wear gloves to avoid getting food coloring on your hands during this step. Add your desired amount of coloring or flavoring to the center of the disc, and fold the disc over on itself so that the color or flavor is enclosed in the center of the fondant ball.
    • Begin to knead the ball of fondant just like you did before. As you work it, you will begin to see streaks of color coming through from the center. Continue to knead until the streaks are gone and the fondant is a uniform color. Your fondant is now ready to be used or stored as outlined above. Total time 15 mins.
