Baby Shower Cupcakes

This is more of an idea than a recipe. I have done this kind of baby carriage in the past, using a 10 inch springform pan, but using cupcakes is a new idea (for me) that I got from my daughter-in-law, Kari. The cupcakes she told me about had a little baby face tucked into each carriage and star tip wheels. I thought I'd try using little Teddy Grahams and cutting wheels from leftover pastry.

I think I wouldn't use chocolate bears next time, because the color is quite bold. Using the lighter colored bears and not fancying up the wheels, might be better.

For this particular baby shower I tucked two bears into some of them, since we were celebrating the birth of twins. For the cupcakes, I used the carrot cake recipe and cream cheese frosting with extra confectioners sugar. I think Judys' pineapple cupcakes would also go over well, or any other cupcake of your choice. (click on highlit names to view these recipes)

  4. Oh my gosh, these are adorable. Perfect for a baby shower, but I'm also thinking wouldn't they just be adorable for a Teddy Bear tea party with little girls dressing up and bringing their favorite teddy bears.

  8. I'm thinking I'm glad that the teddy bear grahams come in three colors...and can be a personalized choice depending on the expected baby's genetics. Pretty cute, especially when there are babies being adopted from various races.
