Cupcake Menorah

I think this Cupcake “Menorah” (not to replace the real one!) is such a cute and easy idea. You can start with any boxed cake mix recipe and use ready-made frosting or make your favorite basic cake and frosting recipe.

Make a healthier choice using recipes for Banana Bread or Carrot Cake. Just bake them in muffin tins and spread these with cream cheese frosting when cool.

Here’s how to do make this easy Chanukah dessert:

For an fire-free edible candle, place a chocolate covered wafer stick such as Twix, Pirouline or even Twizzlers lengthwise in the center of each cupcake and make a “flame” with dab with white or yellow frosting on top.
