new batches



A new season of cheerleading means new batches of Cheerios... and new batches of cupcakes! This weekend the veteran Cheerios made room in the kitchen for the new girls and things worked out sweetly.


Twenty Cheerios worked together to make twenty flavours of cupcakes to sell at the Christmas market on Saturday. They churned out old standbys and a few new ones.


As you can see, the new ones were beyond cute... they were adorable.


The Cheerios were not familiar with the term "blue plate special" but they sure enjoyed creating these little breakfast cupcakes. One white chocolate candy melt, slightly warmed with a heat gun and then poked with a mini yellow M&M made a perfect yolky egg. French Toast Crunch cereal for toast and then carefully slicing down striped chewing gum for bacon - those were the stand ins.


They looked mighty fine all in a row. Quality control was lacking and one cupcake missed its bacon. One of the quick thinking girls announced to a customer "it was for vegetarians" and saved the sale.


Stuffed Lemon Buster, Egg Nog, The Full Minty.


Our Dirty Blondes (chocolate buttercream on vanilla sponge) were extra fancy, dolled up with sugar pearls, vanilla sparkling sugar and royal icing flowers.


The Bowman Bear was a dense pistachio cake with yellow buttercream and a decorated Teddy Graham.


Superkid, Double Chocolate, Mike n' Ikes.






The Hamburger Cupcake: available in chocolate and vanilla. Plain vanilla buttercream frosting topped with a tiny hamburger cookie. It was sort of the lunch special after the breakfast special.



The best part? The girls reward for their hard work came in knowing they'd done the job well... oh, and cold hard cash.


No, wait. This might have been the best part.


No, wait. This for sure was the best part.

It was slower this year than the same sale last year... we awoke to a little blizzard so I wasn't surprised that foot traffic was down. We basically sold out, we had about two dozen left and packed it in a half hour early. We took the last of them over to the local hockey rink and got a few more sales and then I took what was left over to the cheer judging clinic the next day - I told the judges they were bribes, of course! ;)

We are selling at a major shopping mall in our city on December 10, it is a Saturday. I'm really trying to figure out how many to make for a busy mall on a Saturday two weeks before Christmas... 600? More or less?
