Assembling your Cupcakes
Once you have your cupcakes bakes and your frosting made, putting them together is pretty easy. I use a large disposable pastry bag with the end snipped off to make nice round swirls on top of my cupcakes. To make prettier swirls, position your pastry bag straight up and down over the cupcake.
From here, you have the option of taking a kitchen torch to the frosting and toasting it up a bit like a marshmallow over the campfire. They’re still fabulous without it! Since s’mores aren’t s’mores without Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bars, this next step is really important! Before the frosting sugars over and sets, add in a square of graham cracker and a square of a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate bar. If I have it on hand, I also like to sprinkle a little disco dust over top of my cupcakes so they sparkle for bake sales.
Packaging for the Bake Sale
Appealing packaging is always going to make your baked goods stand out. My favorite way to package up cupcakes at bake sales is to use clear plastic cups and a clear plastic bag with some pretty ribbon.
Cupcake liners are also useful in making the cupcakes a little more colorful! Just place your liner into a short clear plastic cup, drop in the cupcake inside, then place the cup in a cellophane bag and tie off with a ribbon. You can also place unfrosted cupcakes into the cups to make decorating and packaging a bit easier if you know this is what you’re going to do.
