  • Yellow cup cakes - 1 cup crisco, 2 cups sugar, 4 eggs, 3 cups flour, 2 1/2 tsp baking pwdr, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 cup milk, 1 tsp almond extract, 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • White Cream Cheese Frosting - used easy to spread premade frosting
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Pink Candy rings cut in half
  • Green sugar candy ribbons, cut in thin strips
  • Pink sugar candy
  • Brown M&M
  1. Cream crisco, sugar - add eggs, one at a time, beat well after each. Combine dry ingredients and add 1/2 to creamed mixture, blend, add milk, blend, add remaining dry mix, blend well. Stir in extracts. Spoon batter into prelined muffin pans and bake at 375 degress for 20 minutes. Cool.

  2. Arrange cupcakes in shape of flamingo.
