A fun way to do the New Year's Eve countdown is to bake and decorate Clock Cupcakes. Clock Cupcakes are quick and easy to make, and families can enjoy eating them while counting down to midnight.
Make the cupcakes using a boxed mix and a cupcake baking tray. Once the cupcakes finish cooking, let them cool and then pipe frosting onto them in a spiral pattern. Pipe the numbers one through twelve onto twelve cupcakes, then put them on a plate and arrange them to look like the face of a clock. Add clock hands to the center of the plate to complete the dish.
