These cupcakes were requested for a birthday gift. I was hesitant to make them because I make all my cupcakes from scratch but the coconut pecan frosting I used on these is store bought. It’s too much work to make the frosting and the store bought tastes great. The cupcakes and chocolate frosting is made from scratch.
A friend of mine sent a picture of a cupcake shoe to me over a year ago and I had told her I would make it one day. Well today I made one. The cake is marble with pink and purple buttercream frosting. The shoe is made with a red velvet cupcake. I used a graham cracker and smoothed white chocolate on it for the sole of the shoe. The heel is made with a sugar cone dipped in white chocolate.
This snicker bar cupcake was made using the left over halloween candy. I baked some chocolate cupcakes, then cored the center making sure to reserve the top to place over the filling. I filled each cupcake with a mixture of chopped snickers and caramel topping sauce.
I then made a caramel frosting and piped on the frosting and topped each cup with a small piece of snicker candy bar.
After looking at a picture of the cupcakes, I thought they looked boring. I decided to drizzle chocolate and caramel syrup on them.
I decided to lighten the color of my key lime cupcakes. These are the same recipe but I used cake flour instead of All purpose flour. My husband has voiced his request to keep the deeper green color. I will use the darker green color again next time.
