Above you can see the traveling cupcakes. I carefully placed the little frosted cakes into a nice tupperware and boarded an airplane from Los Angeles to San Francisco. 5 twenty-something men and myself successfully gobbled these up by the next day.
Chocolate cupcakes. VEGAN chocolate cupcakes (one would never know they were vegan, especially with all that buttery frosting on top!).
Peanut butter frosting.
Peanut butter frosting atop of a chocolate cupcake with:
- crushed oreo cookie crumbs **NOTE: I used mini oreos
- with chopped candies (chocolate covered espresso beans and peanut butter cups and m&m's...) **NOTE: Trader Joe's sells mini peanut butter cups which are perfect for these cupcakes
- with chocolate sprinkles
- with a swirl of Nutella spread
- with a dollop of jam
Chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting and rainbow sprinkles.
The cake part makes a LOT of cupcakes. I got 14 big ones and 24 babies (remember, the babies will take less time to bake...think 10-12 minutes instead of 20-25).
