So much of the Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) holidays are spent in shul (synagogue). The prayer service follows an order of prayers delineated in the respective machzor (prayer book) for each of these holidays.
In preparation for Rosh Hashana and Staci Segals’ charity bake sale, I prepared some cupcakes that are each decorated with a machzor (prayer book). The proceeds will benefit Yad Sarah, a very worthwhile organization that provides medical equipment to patients in need.
These cupcakes are available for sale among other delicious desserts at the Segal Home this Sunday, September 17th, 2017 from 12 noon-5 PM. The address is 475 FDR Drive #301 on the Lower East Side. For more information, please contact Staci at 917-295-7285 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Vanilla Cupcake recipe
wafer cookie bites
Use your favorite vanilla cupcake recipe. I baked mine as confetti cupcakes by mixing sprinkles into the dry ingredients before adding the wet ingredients. Bake cupcakes according to the recipe.
Frost cupcakes with white icing.
For the open machzor decoration, place two wafer cookie bites, side by side and place a line of chocolate frosting down the seam to hold them together. Decorate with the chocolate frosting.
For the closed machzor decoration, roll out fondant or a soft cookie and cut into a rectangle. Surround a wafer bite with the fondant or cookie bookcover. Decorate with the chocolate frosting.
Wishing you all a Kesiva Ve’Chasima Tova (a positive inscription and seal for the upcoming year).
