I knew when I saw these super cute Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes over at Living Locurto, I HAD to make them for an upcoming birthday. So flippin’ cute and clever!!
Want to make some too? Here is what you do:
First, you need to find youself some ice cream cups. They found their ice cream cups HERE. YIKES! Expensive, huh? I put my super bargain finding skills to work, and I found the ones pictured above at Michael’s craft store for only $1.99 (Plus, I had a 20% off coupon to boot!). The ones I found were smaller, and they fit the cupcakes perfectly.
Next, you will want to make some cupcakes. I just used a boxed cake mix, so it was super simple. I baked them in regular cupcake liners and then once they were cooled I added them to the ice cream cups.
The frosting comes next! It looks just like ice cream, doesn’t it? You will want to head on over to Living Locurto for the frosting recipe. Make sure you refrigerate it first.
Next melt some chocolate candy melts, these work better than just regular chocolate chips because they set up nicely. Then you will want to add some sprinkles.
Lastly, you will want to add a “cherry” on top. I used Gobstoppers, you could also use Gum Balls or any other round red candy.
I wrapped one up in cello, and made a card with the Silhouette SD Machine. Perfect to give to a friend for their birthday. I can see working a whole birthday party theme around these cute little cupcakes.
A big HUGE thanks goes to Living Locurto for the inspiration and recipe!
