Banana Split Cupcakes

DSC_0763x900Useless and random fact: I’ve never had a banana split. I know, I know, what kind of American am I?! Cause if there’s anything America loves, it’s treats in large portions — and the banana split is just that. But I’m always inclined to choose other things over ice cream treats that involve fruit. These cupcakes were just too cute not to make though! The decorating/presentation was inspired by A Happy Food Dance — and that link features an entirely homemade version of these cupcakes. I used box muffin mix and store bought frostings because sometimes that all I’ve got time for.

Hope you enjoy!

You’ll need:
Banana muffin mix (plus required oil, eggs)
Vanilla frosting (I used store-bought)
Chocolate frosting (I used store-bought)
Strawberry frosting (I used store-bought)
Maraschino cherries
Cupcake liners
A large, round pastry tip + a pastry bag

1. Make the banana muffins according to box directions and allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
2. Using a large, round pastry tip, pipe little blobs (very technical term, I know) of each kind of frosting onto the top of each muffin.
3. Garnish with sprinkles and a cherry.

Recipe yield will depend on what kind of muffin mix you use; I made 12.
