Hello, cupcake. Meet Pinata!
Who does not love a cupcake? Moist and delicious. Topped with a swirled pile of buttercream frosting and sprinkled with a rainbow of confections? How about taking the cupcakes we love to a whole new level? Filling them with surprises ~ like jelly beans, and M & M's and mini marshmallows or creams?
I had the fun pleasure of not only presenting the new Love Baking Company Pinata pan on QVC last week, but I was also asked to bake for the appearance, as well.
So here is the concept.
The pan has two pieces - a top and a bottom. The goal here is to create a bottom cupcake with a well that you fill and then a separate top. They lock together. When baked and cooled, you use a spatula to scrape off any cake that has baked thru the vent holes. Open and separate the two pans. Fill the bottoms with anything that you like. You can see, I used all kinds of colorful candies, but I also filled with cheesecake, carmel sauce, hot fudge. I made cupcakes, but also tried brownie and cornbread cups and they baked beautifully. This takes one box of cake mix for about 9. Once they are filled, ice around the cake edges and gently push on the dome top. Ice and decorate. FUN!!!!! #lovebakingcompany #MrsFields
