Foodstirs August 2017 Review

I have loved Sarah Michelle Geller since I was a teen girl watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I have followed her career and seen her movies and watched her other TV shows. When she went into the subscription box service, I thought it was cool but that was all. Now that I am including my son into cooking and baking, I decided to give the box a try since I am busy and I don’t go grocery shopping (my husband does, grocery stores put me in a foul mood).

So how it works, you can sign up for a subscription and a box comes every other month.  They follow a theme so like August was Smore Cupcakes for summertime. The box has the dry ingredients and information cards that tell you how to make it, tips, what wet ingredients you need and what stuff you need like measuring cups. Plus it has anything “decorative.”

Yes, we are stirring on the floor.  None got on the floor and they were only for our family.

The recipe was pretty easy to follow. I decided to do their pro tip and put a marshmallow into the batter. The recipe made 8 cupcakes. My son loved stirring and putting the cupcake tins into our cupcake pan.  He also loved licking the icing off the spoon.

Now onto our bad-looking cupcakes.  I love to bake but icing is not my thing.

So my “fire” looks like someone bled all over my cupcakes but the taste was fine. We had trouble keeping the marshmallows perfectly on the cupcakes during the second cooking. The cupcakes tasted fine.  I really like the graham cracker crust on the bottom.

We enjoyed it and can’t wait to see what we get in October. It was a nice activity to do with my son that I would like to continue.
