Celebration Cupcakes

Weddings, graduations and birthdays mark a significant and joyous time in people’s lives calling for celebration.  Invitations are sent, venues are rented, balloons are blown up, food is prepared and cakes are iced.

Throughout the Old Testament and continuing on today, Jewish believers celebrate significant times of God’s provision and protection with feasts and festivals.  The three main annual festivals are: Passover (celebrating God’s deliverance through the exodus), Pentecost (a thanksgiving festival occurring fifty days after Passover.) and Tabernacles or Booths (celebrating provision through the final harvest ingathering).  God wanted the Israelites to celebrate, and He wants us to celebrate His provision and protection today as well.

Celebrate God’s provision and protection in your life with classic strawberry shortcake cupcakes, cute cookie monster cupcakes or brilliant billiard ball cupcakes. 

Crazy Chocolate Cupcakes

This no-fail, moist cake recipe was given to me by my mom, Kathy.

Combine the dry Ingredients in a bowl:

3 cups (390 g) of flour

1 1/2 cup (300 g) of sugar

6 tablespoons cocoa

2 teaspoons of salt

2 teaspoons of baking soda

Put three indentions in the dry mixture.  Fill the indentions with:

2 teaspoons vanilla essence

1/2 cup (140 ml) of vegetable oil/sunflower oil

2 tablespoons of vinegar

  1. Then pour 2 1/4 cup (500 ml) water over all three holes containing the wet ingredients.
  2. Mix with a fork, but don’t beat.  Place the mixture into 24 cupcake cases.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (180 Celsius) for about 15-20 minutes.

Tip: To make Cookie Monster cupcakes, whisk together buttercream icing with a few drops of blue dye.  Pipe the icing through with a serrated tip makes ridges top on the cupcakes.  Melt milk/dark chocolate and dot marshmallows to make the eyes.  Add ½ of a chocolate chip biscuit for the mouth.
