Welcome to the first week of the #HilandBakingChallenge. I am so excited to partner with Hiland Dairy to bring you these weekly baking challenges you can make at home with ingredients you likely already have in your pantry and fridge! I absolutely love Hiland Dairy products and grew up on them, in fact! They are a Midwest based company focused on bringing the freshest and highest quality ingredients to your home. No artificial growth hormones ever! I love all of that but mostly I love their products because they taste good! They make everything I bake taste even better. Which is why I am so excited to be able to bring a little Hiland love to you!
This Hiland Baking Challenge is a great opportunity to get the kiddos in the kitchen with you or take this time to do some therapeutic baking all by yourself (as much “by yourself” as you can get these days at least.) After you finish your baking session, take a picture of your final creation and post it to your social media with the tag #HilandBakingChallenge This will automatically enter you in the weekly giveaway of a prize pack consisting of free product coupons and other Hiland swag. You can find full details and rules here.
Introducing the first recipe for the first week of the baking challenge-the Ice Cream Cone Cupcake! Easy, fun, and so yummy! Leah had so much fun making these and even more fun getting sprinkles everywhere. The girl loves her some sprinkles.
We used my Yellow Cupcake recipe which is easy and my favorite cake. It uses ingredients you probably have in your kitchen right now. Details below, plus a handy pdf recipe card you can print off for easy access!
