My daughter Courtney is a regional manager for a company called Sodalicious and they had their annual Sodaprom this weekend. She asked me if I would make 200 mini cupcakes and 200 brownie cups for the prom so I of course said yes!
You can find the recipe for these, which are formally called Tuxedo Brownie Cups, here. They are pretty easy to make and they are always a hit, one of my most popular and requested treats.
The cupcakes are straight from a box mix, the mint frosting is from my favorite buttercream icing to which I added 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract and a generous squirt of green gel food coloring to get it a soft mint color and then topped with a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips.
These guys started with a white cake mix to which I added 1/2 tablespoon of vanilla extract, frosted with my fav buttercream icing with a teaspoon of coconut extract added in and then topped with toasted coconut.
And finally these babies who started with a yellow cake mix, frosted again with my fav buttercream icing with some salted caramel flavoring added in from the Wilton Treatology Flavor System and then topped with a mini pretzel.
There weren’t any left over so I’m going to say it was a success!!
