I borrowed a hand mixer from a friend in anticipation of making 48 cupcakes but the great thing about these recipes is no mixer needed.
The cupcakes were frosted with Magnolia Bakery's vanilla buttercream, substituting skim milk for full fat milk and colored with a combination of Wilton's royal and sky blue gel past colors to achieve the signature UN blue. The medical themed decorations were formed with homemade marshmallow fondant, colored with Wilton's gel paste food coloring.
Microwave the marshmallows for 30 seconds at a time stirring the mixture in between with the wooden spoon.
Cover your work surface with powdered sugar and cover your hands with Crisco or shortening.

Divide frosting into 5 small bowls, and tint each bowlful a different color with food coloring. Decorate wings as desired with assorted colored frostings: Place frosting in pastry bags fitted with couplers and round tips, and pipe over surface of wings.

Try this healthy cupcake recipe for Chocolate Raspberry cupcakes, and you will seriously forget you are on a diet. This was a great opportunity to try out some low and non fat cupcakes recipes, not something I make (ever) often. Gumdrop heads and licorice antennae may be the first things picked off and popped into happy mouths.
Then position halved cupcake tops on top of frosted cupcakes, pressing gently to adhere wings to soft frosting. Alternatively, gently spread frosting with a small offset spatula over the surface of the wings as desired.
And she does it in a away that makes you feel like you are talking to your best friend, rather than some super skinny weight loss authority.
They make a fantastic summer dessert recipe to bring to a potluck or BBQ, so if you need an idea for a Weight Watchers 4th of July Recipe, this would make an awesome one.
These delicious Apple Cupcakes with Cinnamon Vanilla Frosting are moist, sweet, fluffy, and everything you could hope for in a cupcake.
Made with a lot of fresh ingredients and no artificial sweeteners, the end result is a sweet and tasty cupcake that is so soft and delicious. Made with fresh fruit instead of artificially sweetened syrups and topped with a creamy and flavorful cream cheese frosting, this light cupcake is a real treat. To make bugs, attach tops with the domed side up and points meeting just inside edge of cupcake and extending off the opposite side.
For lots of frosting, spread each wing with a base coat of frosting first and pipe out decorations in a different color. Jennifer has lost 100 lbs with Weight Watchers and her story, advice and support are a great asset to anyone trying to lose weight, so I highly suggest checking out her blog! The creamy vanilla frosting has a hint of cinnamon that really completes the flavor palate. The cake itself is moist and delicious, and the frosting is soooooo yummy, I was tempted to just eat the whole bowl of it with a spoon.
To create butterflies, attach pieces, cut side up, with rounded edges in center of cupcake (domed shape will create angled wings). Just by making a few healthier changes to a traditional carrot cake recipe, I was able to shave off a lot of extra fat and calories with very little compromise in taste.
Chocolate and raspberry have always been a favorite flavor combination of mine, and using the two of them in this low calorie cupcake recipe turned out oh so good.
They make the perfect dessert or snack and are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without using up a lot of Weight Watchers Points. Though it’s not an official one of Weight Watchers Dessert Recipes, each of these little decadent cupcakes have just 5 Points +, and make the perfect end to any meal, or the perfect Weight Watchers friendly treat to reward yourself with.
