I’ve always adored the Oz Series by L. Frank Baum and was excited to learn that the new Amazon Original Kids series Lost in Oz (now available on Prime Video), is modern take on that beloved classic.  The new Amazon Kids series follows the magical adventures of Dorothy and Toto as they find themselves lost in the spectacular and peculiar land of Oz. They are joined by new friends and face unexpected enemies in this fun and exciting show.


This new series is a family favorite around here. I love that it pays homage to the original stories. Dorothy’s shoes in Lost in Oz are in the iconic blue and white gingham pattern and instead of the yellow brick road, there is a train system called the yellow brick line. Of course, I just had to bake up a batch of “yellow brick line” inspired cupcakes to enjoy while watching Dorothy acquire every element on Oz’s “periodic table of magic” – the only way she can get home! You might want to make an extra batch of frosting, it’s that good! 



Yellow Cake Mix Box (+ eggs, vegetable oil, water)
2 Cream Cheese Packages (8oz)
8 Tbsp Butter
1 Tbsp Vanilla
3 Cups Powdered Sugar

You’ll also need: half pint mason jars, cupcake liners, cupcake pan, knife, piping bag, cupcake topper printable, 2 inch hole punch, toothpicks, hot glue, gingham ribbon, scissors and double sided adhesive. 


Step 1: Make the yellow cupcakes according to the cake mix box, in individual cupcake wrappers.

Step 2: While the cupcakes are baking, prepare the frosting. Whip the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add in the vanilla and one cup of powdered sugar at a time until fully mixed. Place in a piping bag.

Step 3:  Allow the cupcakes to fully cool before unwrapping and cutting in half. You’ll need 1 1/2 cupcakes per jar.

Step 4: Layer pieces of cupcake in between piped layers of cream cheese frosting. Three layers of each should fit perfectly.
