Guest Post Spectacular - Guest #2 - Pamela's Heavenly Treats






Hi! My name is Pamela and I am the lovely lady behind Pamela's Heavenly Treats, I must first say that without God none of this would be possible.  I am a wife, mother of 6, homeschool teacher and I have a small Healthy Cupcake & Cookie business. Everything that I make is made with 100% Whole Wheat Flour and my secret ingredients.  I have a weekly dessert link party that runs from Saturday to Wednesday called Heavenly Treats Sunday, would love to have you.  I also have a Etsy shop where I sell my healthy mixes!  

This week I made Candy Cane Peppermint Cupcakes!  I really outdid myself, they came out delicious.  My taste testers loved them, they said the cupcakes tasted just like a candy cane, that's exactly what I was going for! It doesn't take much to make these cupcakes, very easy recipe!






     Cupcake
     2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
     1 tsp baking soda
     1 tsp baking powder
     2 eggs
     1 cup fresh buttermilk
     1 1/2 cups canola oil 
     1 tsp vanilla
     1 cup light brown sugar

     Frosting
     1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
     3 cups sifted powdered sugar
     1 tsp vanilla
     fat free milk if needed
     1 tsp peppermint extract
     red icing coloring
     candy cane for decoration

In a bowl mix dry ingredients together and set aside.  Mix wet ingredients and                        mix thoroughly.  Slowly add dry mix  and mix well.  Pour into cupcake tins and bake for 18 minutes on 350.  Cool on wire rack.

While cupcakes are cooling, mix butter, vanilla and peppermint extract together then add sifted powdered sugar and if you need milk add for consistency! Put frosting in piping bag, dip a toothpick in red icing coloring, and dip in white icing, this will make pretty white and light red frosting!  Pipe cupcakes and add candy canes for decoration.


I want to thank Nichi for letting me be a guest on her awesome blog.  I would love for you to come visit me at my blog.  I also have a Etsy shop where I sell my dry mixes.  Come over and visit!
