Fairy Fizz and Angel Food Cupcakes!

Wednesday - leprechauns, Thursday - fairies... it’s been a busy week here at our house. My daughter has a fairy tea party book that she absolutely loves so, of course, she has to have her own fairy tea parties. In the book there is a pop out kitchen and in the kitchen is a recipe for the famous and very secret fairy Fizz. If you promise not to tell I’ll share the recipe with you... remember SHHH! Oh, and because it's so secret I can’t share a photo with you, or maybe I forgot to take one?? Hmmm??? One of those. Also because I love you all so much I’ll share a great LOW cal cupcake recipe with you.

Fairy Fizz

Ingredients:

  • Pineapple Juice (can’t remember what size the container is)
  • 2 liter Cherry 7UP
  • Cherries

Directions:

  • Pour ½ a container of pineapple juice in a punch bowl.
  • Add the 7Up
  • Pour into a fun see through cup and drop in a cherry or two.


Angle Food Cupcakes

Recipe from”Betty Crocker’s Just Cupcakes” Cookbook.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½C powdered Sugar
  • 1C Flour
  • 12 Egg whites
  • 1 ½ tsp Cream of Tartar
  • 1C Sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp Almond Extract
  • ¼ tsp Salt

Directions:

  • Place the oven rack on its lowest setting and preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line cupcake tins with paper and set aside.
  • Combine the powder sugar and flour and set aside.
  • Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar together until foamy.
  • Beat in the granulated sugar 2 tablespoons at a time.
  • Add the vanilla, almond extract and salt with the last sugar addition.
  • Beat until stir and glossy.
  • Fold the flour mixture in ½ a cup at a time until the flour disappears.
  • Divide evenly into the cupcake cups and bake for 15-20 mins or until the cupcakes feel dry and the cake springs back.

Note: I didn’t use the angle food cupcake recipe for our party. It just felt like too many eggs for a fairy party.
