Tasty Tuesday- Cupcake Poppers

I saw these first on Crazy Domestic. As soon as I saw them I knew I HAD to make them.

I looked through my cabinet and I had everything I needed so I finally made these this past weekend.
And all I can say is YUM!!! :)

They do take some time but they are fabulous!

Cupcake Poppers

-1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist White Cake (or your favorite brand/recipe)
(I thought I had a plain Vanilla cake mix but it was Funfetti so that is what I used and it worked just fine.)
-Food coloring, liquid or gel
-Vanilla Frosting
-Mini cupcake pan

Mix the batter as directed on the box.

Then separate into 4 different bowls, about 1- 1 1/4 cups batter in each.
Add 5-6 drops of food coloring to each bowl and mix well.

Spoon batter into mini cupcake tins and bake @ 350° for 8-10 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test.

While the cupcakes are baking, separate frosting into 4 small bowls, and add 5-6 drops of food coloring to each and mix well.

Once the cupcakes are cool, cut off tops with a serrated knife.
You can eat those bottoms if you just HAVE to try the cake for a taste test. (HIGHLY suggested.)

Spread some color coordinated frosting onto the underside of one of the tops and then sandwich another top of the same color on top.

I then placed them into mini cupcake liners to prevent them from sticking to the bottom of my pan and so you can pick them up easily.

  1. Holy cow, those look sooo good! And of course, you always need to taste test. ;)

  2. How adorable are these?? I love to make rainbow cupcakes and just do a few spoonfuls of all different colors in each cupcake. They turn out super cute.

  3. Yum, I just did color burst cupcakes the other day with my little girl!!! I love the solid colors. So much fun.

  4. So fun! So what is your super secret to having the cupcakes not stick to the pan?

  5. oooh great idea! thanks for sharing i think i;ll just have to do this for my sons bday

  6. Allison, these look delicious and crazy - just right for my gang.

    Just want to tell you I've been enjoying your blog. Lots of great ideas. Did you decide on a color for the frames yet from your post the other day? I know you want to stay away from green (my fav color) but how about a mixing it up a little and trying both brown frames AND some burnt umber frames(or some other deep brownish orange). Just for you to mull over... ;-) ~Lori

  7. these look so good! how did you know i was craving cake and frosting?!!! :)
    I have missed your blog! I noticed that when I converted to my own domain I lost many of my favorite blogs because my gfc reader didn't transfer and my blog roll didn't transfer either...so now that I found you I will put you back on the blog roll so I can read your posts regularly. I ADORE your new blog design. So cute:)

  8. Do these not look good?? Making some pink or red for Valentine's Day would be fun, too!


I love to receive and read your comments. It just makes my day! :)
