My BFF’s birthday is today! Happy Birthday, Bethany! Unfortunately, Bethany lives in Boston and I live in Milwaukee. I wish I could celebrate with her [with cupcakes and beer and all things photography] but this post will have to suffice. Aren’t these cupcakes cute? A mini cupcake (actually it’s a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup) on top of a full-sized cupcake.
1 box cake mix (plus required oil and eggs)
Black or brown cupcake liners
1 bag mini Reese’s peanut butter cups
1 batch of buttercream icing
Sprinkles for decoration
1. Bake cupcakes according to box directions.
2. Frost the cupcakes with the buttercream icing. I used a large star tip. Top with sprinkles of your choosing.
3. Unwrap the peanut butter cups from their foil wrappers but leave the brown liner intact. Place a bit of frosting on top of each mini Reese’s peanut butter cup. Top with sprinkles.
4. Place the mini peanut butter cups on top of each full-sized cupcake.
