Picture of Boat Mould Cupcakes In A Boat

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
Miracle whip
Creme De Menthe or ( raspberry flavoring for the raspberry topped cup cakes)
Raspberries for garnish if desired.
Food coloring

For The Boat Mould:
Tin foil/scissors

For The Boat
Crochet thread
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.

Step 2: Make The Boat Mould

To make the mould for the boat, cut 2 pieces of tin foil 8 1/2 X 11 for each boat mould.

Follow the pictures for folding it. 

Step 3: Batter

My family liked the chocolate raspberry but their favorite was the chocolate mint. The Miracle Whip added moisture while the lemon and salt cut back on the sweetness and allowed the flavors to blend nicely. The milk added richness. I used farm fresh eggs which is the best for baking.

Make the batter according to the directions exchanging the oil with the Smart Balance and the water with the milk.
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt
Add 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Add 1/4 cup Miracle Whip
Add flavoring just a few drops because it is very strong
