The TROLLS Dreamworks movie is just around the corner, only 5 days away actually but whose counting?! :)
To celebrate we thought it would be fun to make some cupcakes. I've always loved Trolls since the 90's and I have quite a collection stashed away. Baking is also one of my favorite things to do, who better way to combine two things I love then by making TROLL inspired cupcakes.
We love Pumpkin Spice everything in our household, so when I found this Duncan Hines cake mix at Target, I knew it owl die perfect for our Troll inspired cupcakes.
After gathering our ingredients needed to make our Pumpkin Spice cupcakes we made sure to mix our wet and dry ingredients together, I always add one extra egg then what is mentioned on the box instructions because it tends to make the cake or cupcakes more moisture.
Valentina making sure the batter was mixed in correctly, and may be taking a small tasting of it to make sure it's yummy.
After making sure our cupcake liners are in the cupcake tin we make sure to fill them up, making sure to not fill them up to much so that they don't spill when baking in the oven. 23 minutes later, they are nice and brown now time to cool off.
While we wait for our cupcakes to cool down, it's time to go and make our frosting. Lucky for us, our frosting was already included in our cake mix box and all we had to do was add the butter, some water and mixing it was.
But the best thing was, is that it was orange. Trolls hair is usually orange, how great was this.
It was time to decorate and watch out creation come to life. We loved being able to share this with Valentina, she loved being able to help bake and then decorate her very own cupcake.
Orange frosting for our Troll hair and fun green and orange sprinkles were a must.
The best part was watching husband turn into a Troll as he gazed at our masterpiece.
We couldn't help topping off our cupcake with this fun troll toy that is actually now available at McDonalds in the happy meals. We might be collecting them as we speak.
