25 Days of Cookies: Day 15 Penguin Cupcakes

For my son's school Christmas Party I made kid friendly easy vanilla cupcakes with Christmas Penguin decorations. Penguins were the theme this year... 

To make the cupcake I use a food prep, but a mixer, a bowl and wooden spoon, nearly anything with a mixing capacity will do.



1/2 cup or 1 stick of melted butter
3/4 cup of self rising flour
1/4 cup of sugar
2 eggs
slosh of vanilla extract (a teaspoon) please use excellent quality all natural real vanilla extract
big slosh of milk (two tablespoons)


1. Set the oven to 400 degrees, and line a cup cake tin with liners
2. Melt the butter in the microwave
3. Place all of the ingredients save the butter into a mixing vessel
4. Mix, blitz, or whirl
5. Add the butter and mix-in
6. Spoon into lined tins and bake for 20 minutes or until brown and toothpick comes out clean

Vanilla Frosting

1/2 cup of butter softened (very important)
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla 


1. In a standing mixer bowl add the sugar, butter, and vanilla
2. Whip silly, until you have a white puffy creamy frosting

Spoon on your frosting into a pastry bag and crown your cupcakes. I then added penguin cupcake toppers that were printed from the computer and attached to a toothpick. I also added some festive sprinkles. 

As always, much love, many blessings, and Merry Christmas!
