Overview

Goal: For students to learn about the difference between all-purpose flour and cake flour, to learn why we need to let our cupcakes cool before we frost them, and where Snickerdoodles traditionally come from, by executing the recipe, Snickerdoodle Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

How: Students will learn that cake flour has been sifted to be extra fine and that all-purpose flour is not, that if cupcakes are too warm when we frost them, the frosting will slide off and melt, and they will hear that Snickerdoodles traditionally come from New England!
