Tiny And Yet Complete...
Now, you all know me well enough by now to know that this post;
"Will not just be about cupcakes"
A lesson learned is a powerful thing...
How do we learn?
By living our days in such a way that we are teachable and not stiff necked!
If you know everything, then just stop reading now;
As I do not want to waste your time (smile)
I have been graced to be in a learning curve my whole life;
I am not ashamed to ask for clarification in any given moment.
I do think one very valuable lesson is that we cannot read each others minds!
What grace and room abounds when we realize this and respond correctly.
That is why being a good student of the word and life is so valuable.
You have all heard this phrase;
How do we eat an elephant?
Well, one bite at a time...
This is how we can become wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove!
Learning comes in teeny tiny bite's
May I ask you this question?
What have you learned recently?
I find as I enjoy other sister's in the Lord, and glean from their wonderful tips and advice,
Then I am able to pick up and assimilate some really great things...
When a sister in Christ shares something that they do or they show me a technique,
I have found that even changing one little thing can make something seem new
And also appealing to our senses and atmosphere!
I have enjoyed baking most my life;
But there are times that just making one big sheet cake is just too much.
So I have enjoyed making a smaller version of the cake into of course;
We all enjoy something sweet as a treat at times,
So I have been making these cupcakes!
You can make a healthy version from scratch, or a boxed cake mix.
The frosting can be the sweet touch, but the sprinkles make them pretty.
I have often seen children just want a certain doughnut in a display case,
Just because of the sprinkles.
I did make some german chocolate ones a few weeks back,
Of course the frosting is what makes them so yummy!
I used coconut and pecans in it and it was delicious.
Chocolate And Coconut-Pecan Frosting
I egg, slightly beaten
2/3. Cup evaporated milk
2/3 Cup sugar
1 1/3 Cups shredded coconut
1/4 Cup butter
1/2 Cup chopped pecans
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
In medium saucepan slightly beat egg.
Stir in evaporated milk, sugar
and butter and cocoa powder.
Cook and stir over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until thick and bubbly.
Remove from heat- stir in 1 1/3 cup coconut flakes and 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
Cover and allow to cool, then frost your cupcakes!
(My Sweet Daughter in law shared this recipe with me)
I added the chocolate powder to make it look and taste like a rich chocolate flavor.
