Spruce up an ordinary cupcake with a boat mould and boat holders.  I will show you how to make the boat mold and the holders and give you a simple recipe to kick up a chocolate ( box ) cake mix and frosting.   My neighbor is having a baby shower this weekend and I thought these would be cute for a boy's theme.  The boat cupcakes were very good and I had several compliments on the flavor.  They are quick and easy to make. 

Step 1: What You Will Need For The Cupcakes

 
1 Regular chocolate cake mix.
1 Can whipped white frosting.
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Smart Balance
Milk
Miracle whip
Creme De Menthe or ( raspberry flavoring for the raspberry topped cup cakes)
Raspberries for garnish if desired.
Food coloring
Sprinkles
Pam

For The Boat Mould:
Tin foil/scissors
Ruler

For The Boat
Crochet thread
Straws
Scissors
Stapler
Scotch tape
hole punch if you have one
Several pieces of printed paper 8 1/2 X 11 (1 for each boat ) Paper safe for food.


Please note: I used skewers in the pictures but decided it would be best to use straws for the kids. They worked out better anyway.
