Ask for Whipped icing next time you order your cakes or cupcakes from Kroger!
My son’s two-year-old birthday party is this upcoming Saturday and I am definitely not signing up to make his birthday cake. I know it is surprising to some of you out there, but making his cake or cupcakes is not something I ever wanted to do. I will always yield to the professional bakers for his birthday to save time and save me from some stress. Because I love sweets and his birthday is in the Fall, I had to figure out the best way to get my son some festive cupcakes for his birthday but try to eliminate the sugar as much as possible so I could enjoy the treats and because there are kids coming to his party and we know how kids get when they get doped up on sugar. Luckily, there is an option of icing you can ask for at Kroger that takes care of that problem.
Although I am not making my son’s birthday cake or cupcakes for his party this weekend, that doesn’t mean I can’t make these cupcakes pretty and gorgeous in his honor. Because my son is only turning 2, I don’t want to do too much and I figured kids always go crazy over sprinkles! Yes, sprinkles make everyone happy. No matter how old you are. Of course, you can sprinkle your cupcakes with traditional multi-colored sprinkles or you can order Fall themed sprinkles like these pretty babies. The great thing about ordering a cake or cupcakes from Kroger using whipping icing is like a blank canvas to add sprinkles or cupcake or cake toppers.
First of all, whipped icing is the better-for-you icing option over heavier buttercream. Let me tell you how:
- Whipped Icing is less greasy than most icings.
- It has less sugar and fewer calories.
- Whipped icing has no trans fat, allowing for a guilt-free sweet treat.
Using whipped icing is an awesome, easy option that is available at Kroger and other retailers. Kroger offers a variety of cake, cookie, and cupcake designs that would be great for the light and perfectly sweet whipped icing. The bakers always make them look so pretty and festive for any occasion.
