Children's Literature - Michael Jung PhD
Everyone's favorite, fourth-wall breaking, mouse returns in Jennifer and Matthew Holm's thirteenth "Babymouse" graphic novel. After Babymouse's careless daydreaming results in a catastrophic accident that destroys most of her school library's books, Babymouse takes part in the school's cupcake sale to raise money to replace the books. Unfortunately, her good intentions go awry when the sale turns into a heated competition between Babymouse and her wealthy rival Felicia Furpaws as they try to outsell each other and win a special "mystery prize" from their school. Can Babymouse come up with a way to sell the most cupcakes? And more importantly, can she remember the real reason she is trying to raise money? Fans of the sweet-but-self absorbed Babymouse will find the usual affable silliness in these pages as Babymouse argues with the narrator, wallows in self-pity, and wanders through multiple dream scenarios where she plays Indiana Jones and Rumplestiltskin-type characters. Great light reading for kids. Reviewer: Michael Jung, PhD

Babymouse Cupcake Recipe

      
from Jennifer L. Holm
& Matthew Holm


Heroic Dodgeball Cupcakes

(Makes 12 cupcakes)

Ingredients
      1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
      1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1 tablespoon cocoa powder
      1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
      1 cup granulated sugar
      1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      2 tablespoons (1 ounce) red food coloring
      1/4 cup whole milk
      1/4 cup heavy cream

Directions
Line a muffin pan with 12 paper cupcake liners. Heat the oven to 350°F.

Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder into a medium-size bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, use a mixer on medium speed to beat the egg, egg yolk, and sugar together until they lighten in color, about two minutes.

On low speed, blend in the oil, vanilla extract, and red food coloring. Add the milk and heavy cream and continue mixing until blended. Add the sifted flour mixture and blend until smooth.

Divide batter evenly among cupcake liners. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcakes comes out clean. Remove the cupcakes from the pan and allow to cool completely on a rack.

Red Knockout Frosting

Ingredients
Can of white frosting
1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) red food coloring
Cinnamon candies (like Red Hots)

Directions
In a bowl, mix the frosting with the red food coloring until combined.

Assembly
Using a rubber spatula, spread the frosting on the cooled cupcakes. Top with cinnamon candies, and serve.
