macy's cup o' m&m's cupcakes


It's Loopy's bud's birthday... Macy is fifteen. We invented a whole new cupcake concept in her honour. 


Get a load of this... piled high with the buttery-est buttercream and then filled with mini m&m's. Filled, I tell you. It's like a bowl made of icing and then filled with candy coated chocolates.
 
Wanna know how? I'll tell ya.


Using a batch of my delicious, softest buttercream (the recipe is in the sidebar) I piped a sort of inverted tornado on the top... creating a bowl or pit to collect the candy.


Then I just simply spooned in the mini's until they were pretty much spilling out over the top. 


The best part... one good bit into these bad boys, and the little m&m's spill out like confetti. It's literally like a cupcake pinata.


Make sure you store these cupcakes in a cool spot and then set them out at room temperature an hour before serving. There are so many candies stuffed in there, you don't want them to topple right over.

My almost 5-year-old son just asked me if I could take one of those cupcakes out of the "omputer." LOL
He loves M&M's. These are right up his alley!!

the treat girl said...

oooh!! I'll be tucking that one into my cupcake arsenal for a try soon.....I'm SURE the girls loooved them!

Saucy said...

Oh and I have something else to say about m&m's in the icing: they get a little soft shell, so they don't crack open when you bite into the cupcake, which I rather like. You don't have to worry about breaking a crown if you let these sit for a while before serving!

Store in an airtight container in cool area but set out at room temperature for about an hour before serving.
