Cupcakes are going green too. And since this is the time where people are getting more and more conscious restoring the beauty of the environment, every single activity has to be associated with green living. And that’s what green cupcakes are living up to. It isn’t just about baking lemon-flavored cupcakes with green frosting – it is about baking cupcakes that can spell the difference for Mother Earth.
In order for you to successfully bake green cupcakes, you are going to need more things than an ordinary baker would require. Aside from the usual cupcake and green frosting ingredients, you are also supposed to use everything environmental friendly to make the cupcakes. How about picking some food-grade cupcake liners that are eco-friendly? But the challenge doesn’t end there. You also have to make sure that all your tools are environment-friendly as well. And that means recycled bowls, wooden spoons, and cardboard packaging.
Start with the plastics that you need. Some bowls, measuring spoons, spatulas, and many other baking tools are made from plastic. If you intend to make authentic green cupcakes, you have to make sure that the tools you have in your kitchen are made from recycled plastic. As for the other tools, you might want to consider wood. Wood is healthier and greener. No harsh chemicals used for making them too.
As for packaging, be sure that you find the one that are most eco-friendly. There are many baking materials that are biodegradable pick them instead of using some that would just add up to the trash in the landfills. Support products that follow that follow the government prescribed environmental regulations. They are going to help you do your share in saving the environment and make those green cupcakes as well.
Give away green cupcakes to people whom you want to join you in your crusade in helping the environment. Green cupcakes are not just tasty treats – they are great ways of saying you care for Mother Nature.
