These cupcakes are a slight variation of back to school cupcakes recently shown in Family Fun magazine.

The chalkboard is chocolate-covered graham cracker! I’m thinking of making a batch for my son’s preschool potluck. Instead of ABC you could write students’ names, school name, etc.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; frosting tinted yellow; chocolate-covered graham cracker (we used Keebler); white Good ‘n Plenty candy or Tic Tac; small red candy for apple (we used Runts); white writing icing in tube or pastry bag.

How to Make It: Frost cupcake with yellow icing. Holding chocolate-covered graham cracker horizontally, write ABC (or whatever you’d like) using writing icing. Stick on top of cupcake. Add Good ‘n Plenty for chalk and candy “apple.”

Heartbeat cupcakes

Heartbeat cupcake
These cupcakes are meant to represent a heartbeat (like on an EKG), which could work for Valentine’s Day or for an office party in a hospital or other health care setting. These are truly cupcakes with a lot of heart.
What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); chocolate frosting; red writing icing or red icing in pastry bag, or just cut corner off a sandwich bag and use that for piping.
How to Make It: Frost cupcakes with chocolate icing. Pipe (draw) line zigzagging up and down for heartbeat. If you make a whole batch of these, try having a different EKG “reading” on each one.
