Bulldog Cakes

Here a couple of cakes we did today. They were for a school in Oklahoma, I can't remember the school. Sorry! Anyway, they were for their sports banquet. One was for the girls and had the girls' sports on the bottom and the other was for the boys.

This is a fun cake for a baby shower. It is a cute buttercream design with sugar letters and a sugar rattle as the topper. It could be done in a variety of colors or even change out the topper. We love to brain storm new designs.

I was on the Kansas CW this morning. I said I would post my muffin recipe I make here at home. It is a good base that you can be creative with and add different ingredients for variety.
It is not what we make at the bakery, but an easy home version.

Muffin Base

1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Baking powder

Mix these together thoroughly.

In another bowl mix mix:

1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oil (you can substitute melted marg. or butter)

Add the liquid into dry ingredients. Mix only until moistened, do not over mix.

To this base, you can add 1 cup blueberries, or other fruit. Try grating an apple and adding 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon. I have even added chopped strawberries. Be creative.

Scoop into 12 paper lined muffin cups. Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes. It may take longer depending on what fruit is added.
