Baking Date: August 17, 2012
One of the moms from my oldest son’s baseball team is battling breast cancer. Many in the community have joined the mealTrain — a service that provides an online calendar/organizer to help communities prepare meals for families dealing with illness, surgery, death, birth of a baby, moving, deployments and other life challenges.
Friday, August 17 is the second time I’ve signed up to deliver a meal. The first was homemade lasagna, french bread and a cherry pie.
Today, I’m making homemade fried chicken and buttermilk biscuits. The dessert is corn cob cupcakes.
The cupcakes are a box mix butter recipe. The frosting is classic vanilla from a can. I used jelly bellys in lemon, cream soda and coconut flavors. I used laffy taffy in banana for the “butter”. I topped it off with white and black sprinkles for salt and pepper.
I made 4 “cobs” and placed them in a disposable tin for easy transport. I put the remaining jelly beans in the bottom of the container.
