Day 328 – Ice Cream Cupcakes

24 Jun

Well.  It’s officially summer.  No denying it.  Now, not every day has been roasty toasty, but we’ve definitely had a couple (I’m sure you have too).  So why not cool down a bit with these Ice Cream Cupcakes (recipe below from Bubbly Nature Creations)?

The cupcakes are very dense and really chewy. They have a plain but sweet taste. No distinct flavor, just sweet.

Whipped-Topping

The frosting is soft but stable. It is pretty much whipped cream. In taste and feel. It’ll last a little longer than regular whipped cream (thanks to the added gelatin). But it doesn’t change the flavor. Sweet, vanilla cream.

The ice cream plus the freezing makes the cupcake quite tough. But, the ice cream and whipped cream really lighten it up. The strawberry ice cream seems to come out as the strongest flavor overall. And the sprinkles (both in the ice cream and on top of the cupcake) add a nice texture balance. This is a sweet, sticky, fun cupcake. Very bright and colorful. Good for a party. And you can vary the ice cream flavors, depending on your preference!
