Sure it’s 100 degrees outside, but these lemon cooler cupcakes will make it feel like 98. With the weather this hot you might think about picking up unfrosted cupcakes from the bakery or grocery store for your decorating projects. We call ahead and ask if they have “naked cupcakes.” That always gets a laugh. We did a taste test at several local bakeshops and grocery store bakeries and now we know where we can get great-tasting unfrosted cupcakes for decorating without having to crank up the oven. In the Technique of the Month you can see how we keep our edge, using craft scissors to create the serrated mint leaves on the coolers. This month’s Candy Corner takes a closer look at some fantastic stick gum colors that can be used for decorating.
