Here is how our chocolate cup cakes turned out! Yummy can't wait to try them tonight for desert!
Here is how I made them. I kind of cheated with the cake mix! I used a Duncan Hines cake box, I love this mix. The cake always turns out moist!
Once my batter was all mixed up, I poured it all into an extra large Ziploc bag. I placed the bag in a bowl to hold the bag in place while I scrapped out the bowl.
Next, I closed up the Ziploc bag and pinched one of the bottom corners. With some kitchen scissors I then snipped the corner off (don't cut it too big, or you might end up with a big mess). Start pouring into the wrappers.
Like the directions on the box indicate, only fill up to 2/3 of the way up the cup cake wrapper.
Around 20 minutes later your cupcakes will look like this. Perfect time to get your frosting done! Here is the recipe I used for mine. Tip: To make more icing, simply keep whipping you mixture. It usually will double what your recipe yields! I usually let the mixer go until my cupcakes are completely cool, around 10-15 minutes!
Once my frosting is done, I scoop it all into a size 16 pastry bag with a star tip already attached. To help me do that I place the pastry bag in a large cylinder vase I have, and roll back the edges.
Then I flip up the edge of the pastry bag and twist the top closed, and keep it pinched with my hand while I squeeze and frost the cupcakes!
And here they are once again! YUMMO!
Half of them I packed up to take to work with me on Monday! It's been a while since I treated my colleagues with some baking! I don't know any nurses who can resist a cupcake, lol! These will go straight into my deep freezer. That will keep them fresh until then!
Here are the little cupcake wrappers I found at the Dollar store! What a deal, and they come with the little toppers! I couldn't even make them for that price ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend! Live a little, eat some chocolate! :)
