Bubble Gum Cupcakes!
I found these here...cookiesandcups.com/blow-pop-cupcakes. (If this link doesn't work, you can access Cookie and Cups by clicking the link on the right side of my screen). I made them for the Bingo/Bake Sale night at our school! The icing tastes just like Bubble Gum! Like the blogger at Cookies and Cups, I made my own Buttercream frosting!! Here is the recipe I used:
Bubble Gum Buttercream
1/2 C. Crisco Vegetable Shortening
1/2 C. Butter, softened
3-4 C. Confectioners Sugar
1 Tbsp. Vanilla
3 Tbsp. Milk
1 Packet of Duncan Hines Bubble Gum Mix In Flavoring (for icing)
Combine Crisco and Butter until combined. Add sugar - starting on low speed until combined and then to medium speed. Add vanilla and milk and mix on high speed for several minutes, until light and fluffy. Add flavor packet and mix on high speed for another minute or so; until well incorporated.
