This month's random holiday is National Cow Appreciation Day. In honor of this day, Laura and I had many fun things planned, one of which was fun "cow pattern" cupcakes.
These cupcakes are not healthy, but as part of a healthy diet are a fun treat to be enjoyed!
To make these moo-valous treats, I started out with a Funfetti cake mix and topped them off with a whipped vanilla icing. In order to get the cow pattern I used Fruit Roll Ups. Note: To successfully unroll a Fruit Roll Up without tearing it, you must refrigerate it! Room temp Roll Ups are a mess!
I placed the Roll Ups flat on my Silpat and just used a small sharp knife to carve out random patterns. I might suggest having a cow pattern to look at when you are doing this. I did not, and some of my cupcakes look like happy and sad faces. Simply the lay the pieces of cut Roll Up on your cupcakes and voila, you have a cow cupcake!
I hope you enjoyed our random recipe for the day!
