Mini Cupcake Cupcakes

9:32 AM


The other day I was trying to think of a fun but easy cupcake I could make for an event we were going to. I didn't want it to be super involved, but still wanted them to be cute and taste delicious. I saw the mini peanut butter cups in the Easter section and inspiration hit. Why not put a mini cupcake on top of your cupcake? That's exactly what I did. The cupcakes were a big hit, so I thought I would share them with you all.

Ingredients:



1 Box cake mix
1 Container whipped white icing
Sprinkles
Mini peanut butter cups

Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the cupcakes according to the instructions on your box of cake mix.

Step 2: Ice your cupcakes. Be sure to use plenty of fluffy icing or your peanut butter cups will slide right off.


Step 3: Place a mini peanut butter cup on top of each cupcake off to one side.


Step 4: Ice the top of your mini peanut butter cups.


Step 5: Add sprinkles to brighten up your cupcakes.


Do you have any quick and easy cupcake decorating ideas to share?
