Devils Food Cupcake Poppers
Prior to frosting,
a hole was punched in these with the end of a wooden spoon and then...
...a squirt of maple syrup in the hole
and then frosted with maple buttercream frosting and a chunk of maple bacon.
...a squirt of caramel sundae topping in the hole
and then frosted with chocolate sea-salted buttercream frosting and a sprinkling of sea-salt.
No hole in these, just cream cheese and butter frosting
and a sprinkling of edible yellow glitter and candy pearls.
Devil's Food cake mix and
this Buttercream recipe.
(Didn't have cream so half and half was used.)
Separated frosting into three bowls:
1) added maple syrup and a little food coloring for maple color
2) added cocoa and sea salt and a squirt of caramel.
3) added cream cheese and more powdered sugar for the roses.
One box made 5 dozen cupcake poppers.
Baked for 12 minutes.
Used high-altitude directions.
The exact right size to pop in your mouth in one bite.
So much less mess that way. :-)
