Let Them Eat Cupcakes!

Pixie Cakes
These party-worthy cupcakes contain hidden fruit or veggies, good-for-you oils, and whole-grain flours.

Give your baby shower dessert a theme. Your guests will go bananas over these monkey around cupcakes.

Monkey Around

What flavor are these cupcakes? Banana, silly. You can use a boxed mix instead of our recipe, but mash real fruit and add it to the batter.

Birthday Blowout

Bakers sometimes add pudding or even mayo to make a cake moist. A heathier idea: applesauce.

Carrot Top

Each yummy cupcake contains a half serving of veggies. Without the frosting, it's healthy enough for every day.

Gluten-Free Goodness

Kids who can't eat wheat are in for a treat: These cupcakes taste divine.

Pixie Cakes

Unfrosted angel-food cupcakes have about 70 fewer calories apiece than typical yellow or chocolate ones. And your little fairies will like them as much.
