If you don’t know about Bakerella, you need to. She is amazing.
So, I decided to take this one on right after making these red, white & blue pancakes. So much baking in one morning, and I advise if you are going to try the snow cone cupcakes to leave yourself enough time. I was rushed, and it was crazy!
Instead of making mini cupcakes, I went with the full sized variety and they came out pretty nifty if I do say so myself.
Instead of making the batter from scratch, I used a box of white cake and added a tablespoon of my new favorite madagascar bourbon pure vanilla extract. It’s a bit more expensive than the regular kind but worth EVERY penny.
She has a delicious butter cream recipe on her blog, so go for it.
Make sure you have piping bags ready because you need quite a few of them.
Also, to get that perfect stripe of the three different color batters, make sure when you are piping the batter into the cupcake tins you use a fluid back and forth motion, don’t keep the bags stagnant! You need some motion to make the stripes.
And that’s it! They were super yummy and a crowd pleaser at the party.
Have a nice day.
