Artist Toni Elkins shares her passions
Shares tips for keeping foods safe this celebration season
And gifts for the grad
I refused to leave well enough alone.
After major surgery, and a round of physical therapy, I wasn’t satisfied with being“well enough”to go back to my normal activities. I wanted better. I still had long walks to take with my husband, and grand children to chase after. My doctor suggested I join Health Directions, Lexington Medical Center’s wellness center, and I’m glad I did. It’s not intimidating like some health clubs. The staff takes into consideration your age, fitness level, medical condition, and goals before prescribing a plan of action. And now, I feel better than I have in years. My life’s taken a new direction.

My mom is Claire Farrell. I am very proud to say that she is a local artist. My children and I call her a world famous artist because to us she is the best that ever held a paintbrush. My brother and I learned all sorts of useful things growing up in an art house. We learned the difference between watercolors and oils (oils make the house smell), how to stack paintings in a car (back-to-back and front-to-front) and that the framing table is the best place to wrap presents (lots of space that can’t be hurt). Most importantly, we learned to hang art so that the vertical center of the picture is 60” from the ﬂoor. Her art also gave me an incredible group of role models – her community of art friends. Angela Bradburn, Margaret Carter, Lolly Dickson, Toni Elkins, Judy Jarrett, Anna Kay Singley, Laura Spong and Bev Williams are the art women of my childhood. These are not salon artists who spent hours drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes and discussing cutting-edge art. These are real women who worked hard to balance art, family, ﬁnances. There were sick husbands, struggling children, ailing parents, limited ﬁnances and inner-demons of self doubt. There were also moments of fantastic joy -- big ribbons at big art shows, commissioned art purchases, one-woman art retrospectives and sales that had them giggling at the checks found in the mail box. I loved seeing them celebrate each other. These are also women who made things happen. They taught art. They led art guilds. They started statewide art associations, and like Toni Elkins, they raised lots of money to support artists. From them I learned the importance of being independent, involved, creative, smart and taking chances. While I may have just been a tag-along daughter helping to shuttle paintings to and fro, these were the women I grew up watching, admiring and emulating. It really does take a village. I am very fortunate that I was in theirs. Thanks Mom. I love you.

The Power of One
Jolie catches up with local artist/philanthropist Toni Elkins to talk about charity, art and how women are making a difference in the Midlands.
By: Heather Dawkins Stalker, special to Jolie Photos by Elaine Floyd, special to Jolie
Artist Toni Elkins is the perfect gal to serve as honorary chair for Women in Philanthropy’s annual Power of the Purse event. Having given and raised funds for numerous worthy causes in the Midlands over the past three decades, Elkins knows just how powerful the purse can be—and not just one purse, but many purses, working together to make a difference. That’s what Women in Philanthropy, a Columbia charity Elkins helped to found almost a decade ago, is all about. “No one woman gives an extraordinary amount of money; but with so many of us giving, we can still make a huge difference,” Elkins says. The organization, which seeks to effect long-term change in the lives of women and children by getting at the root causes of their problems and by pooling resources to make a greater impact, was started in 2002 by 16 Columbia-area business women and activists, including Elkins. Helping get Women in Philanthropy off the ground was “one of the highlights of my career in terms of giving back to the community,” Elkins says. “It has changed a lot of women’s lives.” Elkins has seen money from Power of the Purse and other Women in Philanthropy events support causes like the Children’s Garden, providing childcare for young children of homeless parents who are looking for work and the Sistercare program for battered women and children. Such causes are dear to Elkins, a nationallyknown artist who has worked for the past two years on a series of mixed-media collages based on women’s vulnerability. The pieces, haunting in color and theme, usually include nude women to highlight that vulnerability. “Women are uniquely vulnerable,” says Elkins. “Whether it’s women who can’t get a job, or women who have to work and take care of their families, or women who are subject to abusive men . . . .” Elkins experienced some of the tug be-

tween family and career that many women face when she got married as a college student and, soon after, started her family. “I had always wanted to be a doctor, but that didn’t work out.” Instead, after ﬁnishing their
degrees at the University of Georgia, Elkins and her husband, Sam, moved to Columbia where Elkins’s mom had found a job for her new son-in-law. “She couldn’t believe that her daughter had married somebody who didn’t
Jolie Magazine | May 2011 5
have a job,” Elkins laughs. “We didn’t know anybody in Columbia at the time. I had no car, and we had a baby. But everything fell into place.” And lucky for Columbia that it did. The Elkins have spent the past four decades in the capital city, raising two children and becoming prominent members of the business and arts community here. Sam is still in insurance and is a principal at Keenan, Suggs, Bowers and Elkins, while Toni has become a prominent artist, beginning with shows out of her home to sell some of the numerous watercolor pieces she was producing and progressing to signature membership in eighteen different watercolor societies and permanent collections around the southeast, as well as over 150 national art awards. “Art is my therapy,” she says. “I wear a lot of different hats, and when I get into my art, I can be my real true self. It’s the most unbelievable therapy in the world.” But art is also “a tough business,” Elkins says, noting that in a difﬁcult economy, art can be one of the ﬁrst causes people cut from their giving because they consider it a luxury. “But I don’t feel that art is a luxury. It is a necessity,” Elkins says. “We have to have avenues of art, both visual and performing, for big companies to want to be in Columbia and, thus, for job creation.” Elkins knows from personal experience how tough it can be to choose among the many worthy charities in the Midlands. She says art was her priority in charitable giving and fund-raising for many years, until a stint on the board of the Central Carolina Community Foundation opened her eyes to other needs. “I saw so many people in need, women who didn’t have a place to put their kids while they worked or looked for a job.” Helping these women and others comes naturally to Elkins, who was raised on a mantra of giving to others in small-town Tifton, Georgia. “My dad always said, ‘You save some [money,] you spend some, and you give the rest away.’ ” Aside from women’s charities and the visual arts, Elkins supports other Columbia organizations like Trustus Theatre–where she was Volunteer of the Year–and Edventure Children’s Museum, where she served on the board for three years. “I’m very passionate about Trustus and feel that what they’re doing is different and needed in our community. And Edventure is amazing. The hands-on experiences there can really change kids’ lives.” Elkins also supports the Girl Scouts of the Congaree and served as a billboard model and ambassador for that organization. And, of course, she is involved in Columbia’s art community, frequently judging art exhibits around

the state and serving as a member and past president of the South Carolina Watermedia Society. She also led the State Fair Art Department for ten years, which had the reputation of delivering the largest number of awards in the Southeast. For these and other efforts, Elkins was awarded the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner
Award by Governor Jim Hodges in 1999. It’s the highest award given by the governor for contributions to South Carolina art. When she isn’t painting or fund-raising, Elkins keeps herself busy with a range of pursuits. She is currently writing a ﬁction novel based on her life experiences and is an op-

tions trader on the stock market. Toni loves to jog, and is an avid reader with an impressive collection of rare books. “I don’t have a moment in my life when I’m bored,” Elkins laughs. She has sought to instill the value of work and staying productive in son Eric, who works with his father at Keenan, Suggs, Bowers and Elkins and serves on various community boards, and daughter Stacy, who followed her mom’s former dream and is a radiologist in New York, specializing in breast cancer detection. “When my children turned 15, I said, ‘Happy birthday. Get a job. My son worked at Hooligan’s deli, and my daughter worked at Garber’s Shoes. It gave them a value system.” Though she still adheres to that value system and stays busy and productive in her own life, Elkins says she is learning the word “no” a little more in recent years. She has four grandsons ages 2 to 13 and wants to spend time with them. But as long as she can, Elkins will continue to support causes around the Midlands. “I’ve been blessed in so many ways,” she says. “As long as my husband and I have something to give, we will give it.” Look for Toni Elkins’s work in the upcoming book “100 Southern Artists,” edited by Ansley Rooney and soon to be available for sale on Amazon.com. Contact Elkins at firstname.lastname@example.org to see or purchase some of her artwork.

But our best sellers are the truly unique ones, those that are one of a kind, as well as those by well-known or boutique designers. For the ﬁrst time this year, we are getting many purse donations from truly unique designers and well known labels across the country as well, and we expect the event to have a an array of handbags to suit many tastes.” When and where is it? The event takes

Sue Hodges of Happy Café refers often to the ServSafe standards
Keep Your Party Foods Safe this Spring and Summer
By: Heather Dawkins Stalker, special to Jolie Photos by Elaine Floyd, special to Jolie
Spring is here, and with it, picnics, potlucks, graduations parties and Mother’s Day celebrations. Eating outside is great fun, but it also requires a little more thought about the safety of the food you’re serving. Mom’s macaroni salad and Dad’s famous barbeque are perfect places for hidden bacteria to grow when left too long in the sun. Follow our tips to make your spring and summer celebrations safer for everyone. Temperature is key. Sue Hodges, proprietor of the Happy Café
on Forest Drive, says temperature is always top of mind for her and other restaurant professionals. “There is a danger range you have to be aware of where bacteria multiply rapidly between 41 and 140 degrees. You want to make sure your food is not in that danger zone.” That means keeping hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Use an instant-read thermometer to check the temperature of your food. And when transporting food to a picnic, take two coolers—one for hot and one for cold foods. “You can put newspapers on top of the hot
food to help retain the heat,” Hodges says. Or use this technique from the South Carolina Department of Health and Envirnomental Control (DHEC): Heat a brick in the oven to 350 degrees. Wrap the brick in a towel and place it on the bottom of your cooler. When ﬁlling a cooler for cold foods, add extra ice, bags of fruit or cooled drinks to the top. A full cooler will stay cold longer than one with empty space. And keep your cooler out of direct sunlight.

When grilling out, separate. Don’t cross-contaminate. Keep raw foods separate from cooked foods, and use different utensils for handling the two. And thoroughly clean anything that’s had raw food on it to avoid cross-contamination. “If you’re cutting raw meat on one board, don’t just wash it quickly and then throw celery and onion on that same board,” Hodges says. Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands. This one is worth repeating. DHEC recommends scrubbing your hands with warm-to-hot soapy water for at least 20 seconds, and re-washing them after using the bathroom, smoking or blowing your nose. Know which foods are susceptible to spoiling. While raw chicken or undercooked eggs come to mind ﬁrst when we think of food poisoning, Hodges says people should be careful of any foods that contain high levels of starch or protein—“pasta, rice, boiled eggs, custards.” And she says it’s a myth that mayonnaise causes bacterial growth. “[Processed] mayonnaise is never the culprit because it has such a high acid content. It’s the protein and starches in a dish—ham salad, eggs salad, tuna salad. Once they hit that danger zone, the bacteria start to multiply.” Thaw with care. The best way to thaw food is in the refrigerator, but this method also takes the longest—often a full day or more. For quicker thawing, put frozen food in a water-tight plastic bag and cover it with cold water in a clean kitchen sink. Change the water often so that it stays cold. This will inhibit bacterial growth on the surface of the food. Thawing can also be done safely in the microwave, but Hodges says this is her least favorite method. “It cooks the outer edges and changes the texture.” Foods thawed in a microwave should be cooked immediately after thawing.

Cool quickly. When cooking food ahead of time in bulk for a potluck or family function, don’t place the entire pot of food in the refrigerator to cool. “For one thing, you’re heating up your refrigerator,” says Hodges. “And the middle of a pot of spaghetti sauce starts getting into the danger zone even though the outer edge may feel cool.” Place food into a shallow pan for quick cooling in the fridge (the food should reach a depth of no more than two inches) and then store in an air-tight container. Avoid the dreaded “double dip.” Double dipping--or dipping a chip or carrot stick in the communal ranch stash, taking a bite, and then dipping that same chip or stick
again—“is a real no-no that every child should be taught,” Hodges says. “And it’s really bad when you watch an adult do it at a picnic or a potluck dinner.” So don’t be that person! (And teach your kids not to be, either.) When in doubt, throw it out. Food doesn’t have to smell funny to be contaminated, Hodges says. She recommends letting foods sit out for no longer than two hours (one hour in hot weather.) “If I’ve taken barbeque or fried chicken to a tail-gate before a football game, and we come back after the game four hours later, I’m not going to eat the chicken or barbeque if it sat out,” Hodges says, adding “You have to be smart.”

Sisters Jill Grifﬁn (left) and Jan Mitchell (right) own It’s Personal
My co-worker reaches into the baby bag and pulls out an adorable fabric-wrapped case with her newborn’s name embroidered on it, (which stores wipes for on-the-go diaper changing) and excitedly tells me “I received a bunch of large and expensive baby gifts but this gift is probably one of my favorites because it has Emma’s name stitched on it!” I remember back to the adorable bib I received from a thoughtful neighbor when Nolan was born. His name was embroidered on it and I immediately treasured it because it had been made just for him. There really is something extra special about a gift with your name or monogram on it. You can ﬁnd beautiful market-totes in boutiques all over Columbia, but when that beautiful market-tote (or lunch bag or cosmetic case or even shower curtain!) has your initials on it – it’s just, well, you know, It’s Personal. Jan Mitchell’s husband worked in Contempo (the ladies’ fashion store in the old Lourie’s). He had experience with the world of retail but she, as a retired school teacher, did not.

A boutique ﬂowing with personality
able taking your time as you look through the oodles of merchandise; personalized gifts for every occasion. It’s Personal has grown into a large 3,000square-foot store on St. Andrews Road ﬁlled with beautiful jewelry, unique baby items, decorative bathroom accessories and creative wedding gifts. Jan and Jill avoid buying inventory that could be found at any “big box” store. Instead, customers who walk in this store will ﬁnd gifts that are distinctive and special. Their inventory also reﬂects a commitment to supporting local talent. Many of the jewelers and designers featured in the store are South Carolinians. When asked what their most popular items are, Jan and Jill laugh, and start talking (afghans, stationary, shower-wraps, etc.); the list grows as the item one sister mentions causes the other sister to remember a different piece of inventory that has ﬂown off the shelves. As you watch this exchange – ideas and memories happily bouncing between two sisters, you realize this store is not just a job, it’s, well you know...
Story and photo by: Emily Folsom Fernandez
They both knew that no store in Columbia focused on personalized gifts and that southern women love having things monogrammed. In 1993, they opened It’s Personal in a 500square-foot store. “It was so tiny and we had to share a bathroom with another business!” Jan remembers. In that tiny space, Jan and her mother-in-law embroidered blankets, towels and other items for their clientele.Three years later, Jan’s sister Jill joined the business and pushed for a larger store and an expanded inventory, selling baby gifts, wedding gifts and other unique items. Jill says that she and her sister work so well together because they are true opposites, each contributing different perspectives, ideas and abilities to their successful business. They enjoy what they do and the result is an atmosphere in the store that is light and cheerful. The two women and their staff members are helpful, not pushy, with the people who walk in the store looking for gifts or even personalized items for themselves. It is a friendly store, the kind of place where you feel comfort-

Mary Tyler Moore-ish mod edges out sexy styling
By: Georgea Kovanis, McClatchy-Tribune Information Services (MCT)
The thing to know about fashion for spring is this: It’s all about the 1970s — the pretty, glam and spunky 1970s of Mary Tyler Moore’s beloved television character, Mary Richards. That means wide-leg pants and ﬂowing skirts and dresses — long and short — with A-line silhouettes. It means classic prints and modish platform shoes and comfortable wedges and structured handbags. And, yes, it means a little of Rhoda’s bohemian aesthetic, too. It’s liberated yet ladylike It’s happy and cheerful and smart and maybe — just like Mary — even a little loopy. And it represents a major turn from the ready-to-wear world that had grown clingy and overtly sexy in a Kardashian kind of way. “It was very tight and body-conscious. Cleavage was the accessory. Pants went as low as they could possibly go,” said Gregg Andrews, a fashion director for Nordstrom stores. But, he added, “fashion begins to cycle back around the other way, and it starts to be more about sensuality than about sexuality.” “We’re going back to a place that is more in the middle. It’s not as extreme,” he said. “We have things that now drape the body, things that are ﬂuid and have movement. It’s about more of a subtlety. I think a woman can look pretty and feminine without ﬂaunting her sexuality.” Go for beige, white, cream So while there is always a place for orange, which is very fashionable this season, and pink and colorblocking, it makes sense that the hottest color of the season is ... no color. More than in past years, various shades of white, sand cream, ecru, beige and muted pink and gray are big, especially when you construct an entire outﬁt — skirt, top, jacket — out of them. “These neutrals are very clean and innocent and appealing. I think there’s something very chic about it, very sophisticated wearing all these neutrals together,” said Abbey Samet, a fashion director at Macy’s. “White is pretty big every season, but the

neutral palette is so feminine and romantic,” said Jennifer Ward, spokeswoman for H&M stores. “It’s fresh; it’s clean,” said Janet Christman, 51, who is planning to update her spring
wardrobe with a sizable white watch from Michael Kors. And if you’re going to embrace the spring’s wide-leg trouser trend, get them in white. They’ll look great with everything, provided

you follow the advice of Charla Krupp, fashion expert and author of “How to Never Look Fat Again, 1,000 Ways to Dress Thinner — Without Dieting” (Central Publishing, $20.93). “When you buy a white pant, you have to make sure that the ﬁt is really perfect,” she said. “If it’s too baggy, it’s going to make you look fat. If it’s too tight, it’s going to really show a lot of bumps and rolls and wrinkles.” Mid-calf midis ﬂatter The latest silhouette skims a woman’s shape rather than hugging her until she pops a button or passes out from lack of oxygen. There’s the wide-leg trouser as well as the A-line ﬁt-and-ﬂare dress (which does an especially good job of hiding chunky hips and thighs), but the bigger story is the season’s skirts. Not only are they trending away from pencil straight, many feature pleats so that they have a swoosh of motion to them when you walk. They’re ﬂirty without being overtly sexual. They range from short to ﬂoor-length. But the newest length — the middle-of-theroad midi — falls about mid-calf. “I’m not going to wear something really short to show off my thighs,” said Lisa Morris, 51. She plans to buy a new dress — preferably ﬂoral — for spring. “Somewhere below my knee. I think it looks fancy and reﬁned.” Good-bye grommets Less is best when it comes to embellishments Jewelry and accessories (especially arty cuff bracelets and dangling earrings) are great and some of the season’s blouses have cool retro-inspired scarves and ties at the neck, but the days of bedazzled bodices and grommets here and there and everywhere are over. The focus is on clean lines, interesting fabrics and great patterns. Stripes are especially fashionable. The crisp, classic blue-and-white nautical stripe looks great on T-shirts and even better on blouses. More fun are the season’s ﬂoral prints, especially on dresses. They’re big and bold and lush and retro in — what else? — a 1970s kind of way. Even though you’ll ﬁnd tiny ﬂoral patterns on some of the bohoinspired dresses, approach them with great caution. It’s all too easy to go from being a freedom-loving bohemian to an escapee from “Little House on the Prairie.” Wedges more comfortable, it’s all about structure Skirts and dresses and pants may be full, and some may have a bohemian-style avant garde appearance to them. But they aren’t sloppy. “We’re going back to the idea that a garment has clean, simple lines and structure to it,” Andrews said. That means framed satchels. And shoes — the platform and the wedge have a substantial feel, making them practical for wearing and walking. “They are so comfortable,” said Kimberly Norris, 29. She plans to add several pairs of platforms to her wardrobe this spring Said Andrews: “Women don’t want to look fragile. Even when a woman looks feminine, there’s that substantial shoe grounding the look. We’re not seeing fun, little skinny strapped sandals on heels ... they just looked delicate. Women want to look feminine but they don’t want to look fragile.” Perhaps nowhere is that more evident than in the season’s safari trend The safari jackets and vests and trench-style tops may borrow from men, but they are ﬁtted for a woman’s body. And they evoke a sense of adventure, a certain competency, a certain sense that — like Mary — you’re going to make it after all.

Ways to boost energy instantly
By: McClatchy-Tribune Information Services
If you’ve ever skimped on your 7.5 hours of slumber, pushed yourself too hard during a midday workout, or spent the day camped out in a swivel chair with your eyes glued to a computer screen, you’ve surely encountered the infamous energy crash. And while reaching for Red Bull or scrounging for sugar may seem like the panacea, the effects of your quick ﬁx may be short-lived. Here’s your all-day guide to ﬁght fatigue the healthy way from morning till night. In the Morning: Jumpstart your metabolism. Breakfast kicks off your day and makes you feel better. Include a mix of protein and quality carbohydrates into your meal, says Denise Austin, author of “Get Energy! Empower Your Body, Love Your Life.” Shower sans steam. Your body responds quickly to a cold stimulus, so a cool shower can help perk you up, says dietician Erin Palinski. It will also cut down your shower time and get you out the door faster. Crank some tunes. First thing in the morning, turn on your favorite high-tempo music to wake up your mind and your body, suggests Jim Karas, author of “The 7 Day Energy Surge.” Let in the light. In the morning, throw open the drapes and turn on all the lights to enhance your wake-sleep cycle, says Karas. Sit up straight. Improve your posture, says Austin. This will help open up your chest, allowing you to ﬁll your lungs with more oxygen for your body to deliver to your muscles, including your brain, which consumes 20 percent of the body’s oxygen. At Your Desk: Allow yourself mini breaks. Give yourself short 5-minute breaks throughout the day to stand up and stretch, suggests Austin. Circulation, blood ﬂow

and oxygen delivery to the brain are poor when we’re sitting down, which fatigues the body and decreases mental alertness. Breathe deeply. Taking deeper breaths will deliver a larger amount of oxygen to the brain, keeping you more alert. Sip green tea. It’s packed with anti-aging antioxidants, reduces inﬂammation, hydrates your body and can boost metabolism to help you slim down, says Karas. Eat regular meals. We know you’ve got appointments, deadlines, and never-ending e-mails, but don’t forget to break for lunch. Eat at regular intervals to keep your blood sugar balanced and energy levels high, says Palinski. On Your Lunch Hour: Soak up some sun. Get outside for at least 15 minutes, says Austin.You’ll get vitamin D, which improves mood and helps strengthen bones. Grab a slice of whole grain bread. Carbohydrates will help raise blood sugar slightly, providing an energy boost along with an increase of the mood-lifting chemical serotonin in the brain, says Palinski. Pick a protein. Protein keeps your blood sugar stable for a longer period of time. Round out meals and snacks with foods like eggs, cheese, yogurt and lean meats, and aim to eat something every 3 to 4 hours, suggests dietician Marjorie Nolan, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. Through the Afternoon: Gulp a glass of water. Drink 10 to 12 ounces of cold water as fast as you can, says Nolan, noting that dehydration contributes to fatigue. The temperature drop will shock you awake and the hydration beneﬁt will keep you feeling perky.
Awaken with aromatherapy. Sniff scents like jasmine, peppermint, cypress, eucalyptus, spearmint or geranium to help keep your brain more alert, says Palinski. Snack on nuts. Eat a magnesium-rich snack like nuts for a quick boost in energy, suggest Palinski. Skip the sugar. Aim for high-ﬁber carbohydrates sources, like fresh fruit, whole grain crackers or popcorn, instead of sugar. Although sugar may seem like a quick source of energy, equally quick drops in blood sugar levels can cause another crash, says Palinski. Cheer up. Overly negative people can easily zap your energy, says Austin, who suggests adopting a more positive attitude as a way to feel instantly energized. Take a walk. A brisk walk gets your blood ﬂowing and improves circulation and mental function, says Palinski. During the Evening: Exercise to energize. Regular physical activity increases energy and ﬁghts fatigue by raising levels of mood-boosting serotonin as well as norepinephrine and dopamine, brain chemicals that give you pep, according to University of Georgia researchers who analyzed 70 studies on the subject. But evening exercise can disturb your sleep, so choose your workout wisely. Unwind with music. Karas suggests starting and ending the day with music, but picking something soothing for the p.m. hours. Drift off without distraction. Get a good night’s sleep to recharge your body, says Austin. To drift off with ease, don’t bring your laptop to bed, she suggests, explaining that it will stimulate your brain and make it harder to fall asleep. (c) 2011, www.ﬁtbie.com

Think of cupcakes as fantastic party favors or edible Mother’s Day cards. And no matter the skill level of the baker (or the baker’s “assistant”), there’s a technique that will ﬁll the bill, from using cake mix with canned frosting to baking from scratch and crafting elaborately decorated tops. Here are some ideas for cooking up a memorable day for Mom. MILK CHOCOLATE FROSTING Yield: Enough for 12 regular cupcakes • 1/4 cup heavy cream • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature • 10 1/2 ounces milk chocolate, broken into
28 Jolie Magazine | May 2011
small pieces • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1. Combine cream and butter in a saucepan; place over very low heat. Stir constantly until butter melts completely. (Do not let it come to a boil, or it will burn.) Remove from the heat; add chocolate. Let stand until chocolate softens, about 3 minutes. 2. Add vanilla and whisk until smooth. 3. Let frosting stand at room temperature until it is cool and thick enough to spread on cupcakes. Per serving (based on 12): 180 calories; 12g fat; 7g saturated fat; 20mg cholesterol; 2g protein; 15g carbohydrate; 13g sugar; no
ﬁber; 45mg sodium; 40mg calcium. Adapted from “Cupcakes from the Primrose Bakery,” by Martha Swift and Lisa Thomas (Kyle Books, 2009) CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES Yield: 18 to 22 cupcakes • 3 large eggs, divided • 1 1/4 cups milk, divided • 1 cup packed brown sugar • 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter • 1 cup granulated sugar • 2 cups cake ﬂour • 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1 teaspoon vanilla 1. All ingredients should be at room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease the tops of two 12-cup cupcake pans and line the pans with cupcake liners. Separate one of the eggs. 2. In a saucepan over low heat, combine 1/2 cup milk, brown sugar and chocolate. When chocolate has melted, whisk in egg yolk. Remove from the heat and set aside. 3. Beat butter in the bowl of an electric mixer at medium-high speed until softened. Add sugar and beat until light and ﬂuffy. Slowly add the remaining 2 eggs and the reserved egg white, scraping the bowl down after each addition. 4. Sift together ﬂour, baking soda and salt onto a piece of waxed paper. With the mixer at low speed, add the dry ingredients in several additions, alternating with the remaining 3/4 cup milk and vanilla. Stir chocolate mixture into batter by hand, mixing only until combined. 5. Pour batter into the cupcake liners, ﬁlling each three-quarters full. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until the tops spring back when lightly pressed. Remove the cupcakes from the baking pans, place on a wire rack and allow to cool completely before icing. Per serving (based on 22): 200 calories; 7g fat; 4.5g saturated fat; 40mg cholesterol; 3g protein; 31g carbohydrate; 20g sugar; 1g ﬁber; 130mg sodium; 40mg calcium. Adapted from “The Whimsical Bakehouse,” by Kaye Hansen and Liv Hansen (Clarkson Potter, 2002) PERFECT CAKE MIX CUPCAKES Yield: 24 standard cupcakes • 1 (18 1/4-ounce) box cake mix without pudding (such as Duncan Hines) • 1 cup buttermilk • Vegetable oil (the amount called for in mix directions) • 4 large eggs 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line mufﬁn cups with paper liners. 2. Follow the cake mix instructions, substituting 1 cup buttermilk for whatever amount of water is called for and using 4 eggs regardless of instructions. Beat with an electric mixer until moistened, about 30 seconds. Increase speed to high and beat until thick, 2 minutes more. 3. Spoon half of the batter into a large zipper-closed plastic bag, press out the air, and seal. Snip a 1/4-inch corner from the bag. Fill the paper liners two-thirds full of batter. Repeat with the rest of the batter and another bag. 4. Bake until golden (if using a light-colored mix) and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 25 minutes.
Remove the cupcakes from the baking pans, place on a wire rack and allow to cool completely before icing with your favorite frosting. Per cupcake (yellow cake, made with 1/3 cup vegetable oil): 135 calories; 6g fat; 1g saturated fat; 35mg cholesterol; 2g protein; 18g carbohydrate; 10g sugar; no ﬁber; 165mg sodium; 40mg calcium. Adapted from “What’s New, Cupcake?” by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson (Houghton Mifﬂin, 2010) VANILLA BUTTERCREAM FROSTING Yield: Enough for 15 to 20 standard cupcakes • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature • 1/2 cup 2 percent milk, at room temperature • 1 teaspoon vanilla • 4 1/4 cups powdered sugar, sifted Food coloring, optional 1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, milk, vanilla and half of the sugar until smooth. Gradually add the remainder of the sugar and beat until smooth and creamy. 2. For colored frosting, start with one drop of food coloring and beat thoroughly, which will result in a pale pastel color. Add one
drop at a time, beating after each addition, to reach the desired shade. Per serving (based on 20): 120 calories; 1.5g fat; 1g saturated fat; 5mg cholesterol; no protein; 26g carbohydrate; 25g sugar; no ﬁber; no sodium; no calcium. Adapted from “Cupcakes From the Primrose Bakery” by Martha Swift and Lisa Thomas (Kyle Books, 2009) CREAM CHEESE FROSTING Yield: Enough for 24 standard cupcakes • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature • 1 pound cream cheese, at room temperature • 1 teaspoon vanilla • 4 cups sifted powdered sugar 1. Beat butter, cream cheese and vanilla together in the bowl of an electric mixer until smooth and ﬂuffy, 3 to 5 minutes. 2. Add sugar and beat until smooth. Per serving (based on 24): 210 calories; 14g fat; 9g saturated fat; 40mg cholesterol; 2g protein; 20g carbohydrate; 20g sugar; no ﬁber; 55mg sodium; 20mg calcium.
