It’s happened to the best of us. It’s 9:00 pm, dinner is done, the dishes have been washed and put away, and your little kids are fast asleep in their beds (finally). You are packing your kids lunches for school the next day and your oldest daughter comes into the kitchen with that look. You know the look; the one that you saw when she forgot the science fair project that was due the following day.
She breaks the news to you. She might have volunteered to bring cupcakes to her troop meeting to celebrate the 100th birthday of the Girl Cadettes. Tomorrow. As you mentally run through the ingredients in your pantry, you realize you have everything you need to throw together some birthday cupcakes. As you remind your daughter the importance of being responsible, you look down at your hand and see that you are holding a package of Welch’s Fruit Rolls.
The Snacking Inspiration
Instead of tossing the Welch’s Fruit Rolls into the lunch sack, you absentmindedly open it and slowly unroll the delicious-smelling, fun-to-eat snack and start munching as you preheat the oven and mix the batter. The goodness is like a party in your mouth, and as you enjoy the snack an idea begins to form in your mind.
You can use these fruit rolls to take your birthday cupcakes from blah to ba-boom!
Before you know it, the cupcakes are out of the oven and you are happily singing to your favorite tunes as you frost the cupcakes. Your creative juices are flowing as you use the Welch’s Fruit Rolls to form party hats on your celebratory cupcakes.
A little before 10:30 you place the final party hat on the final birthday cupcake, and you stand back to admire your work. The girls are going to love them!
A Little Extra Fun
This potential disaster was saved by some super baking and lots of creativity. As you box up the cupcakes you see the extra Welch’s Fruit Rolls sitting on the counter. With fruit being the first ingredient and 100% daily value of Vitamin C and 25% daily value of Vitamins A & E in each roll, and especially with the ability to Unroll the Fun you decide to toss in the rest of the packages for the girls to enjoy as part of the party!
