However, after I read the recipe and saw how easy it would be to make these yummy Honey Cupcakes, I had to think twice. Perhaps after I bake these easy cupcakes I can relax like a bear with the bare necessities. Yeah Man!

This recipe is full of simple ingredients that are easy to find if you don’t already have them in your house. Even the honey was simple for me to get since I keep a jar of real local honey on the pantry shelf. just think, Local Honey Cupcakes…NOM!

Disney describes the cupcakes as perfect additions to any party or happy Saturday,

In The Jungle Book, Mowgli helps his best friend Baloo collect plenty of honey from beehives around the jungle. Whether you’re throwing a jungle-themed party, or want to celebrate a happy Saturday, these honey cupcakes are the perfect way to add one of mother nature’s ingredients to a tasty treat. To complete the look, ice with jungle green frosting and top with a paper leaf cutout. family.disney.com

Can’t argue with that. Cupcakes make me happy!

Once you finish your cupcakes and decorate them as desired, you can display your freshly made cupcakes on The Jungle Book Cupcake Stand to complete the jungle theme, if they make it that far. My family is usually like a pack of ravenous animals hunting for their next delicious treat. I have to fend them off just to be sure I get one myself.
