Rat Party Cupcakes




1 large ripe banana

1 egg

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 cup water                        

1 1/2 c whole wheat flour

1/3 c powdered milk

1 1/2 tsp baking powder


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mash banana, beat in egg, add water. Combine dry ingredients and stir them in. Mix until smooth. Pour into greased and floured muffin tins or line muffin tins with cupcake papers. Bake 20 minutes. Cool and ice sparingly. Makes 1 dozen.

For the icing I mixed 2 parts soft cream cheese with one part chunky natural peanut butter, and added milk to thin it down to a smooth consistency that was not thick and sticky enough for anyone to choke on. I decorated them with defrosted frozen peas (which were actually the biggest hit of all. I kept having to replace the peas throughout King's birthday photo shoot.)

Now just add rats...

and serve!
