But these cute cupcakes are from the 1966 Betty Crocker Cake and Frosting Mix Cookbook. Here are a few of the “Little Treats” including one I thought would be great for today – Chocolate-Mint:
“Bake your favorite flavor Betty Crocker Layer Cake. Mix in paper baking cups as directed on package. Finish in one of the following ways.
Chocolate-Mint Cupcakes: Immediately after removing cupcakes from oven, top each with a chocolate-covered mint patty. When the patty melts, spread lightly for marbled mint frosting.
Top Hats: Cut cones from tops of cupcakes. Fill with prepared packaged pudding, replace tops and dust with confectioners’ sugar.
Good Fortune Cupcakes: Write fortunes on narrow strips of paper; fold into small squares and wrap in plastic wrap. Cut a slit along top edge of each cupcake; insert fortune so that a small portion shows. Frost cupcakes. If desired, decorate with “butterflies”: Drain mandarin orange segments well; place two on frosted top of each cupcake to resemble butterfly wings. Use thin strips of green gumdrops for the antennae.
