Ice Cream Sundae Cupcakes

Ingredients

Yellow Cupcakes

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup milk

Fluffy Marshmallow Icing & Decorating

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened at room temperature
  • 13-ounce jar Marshmallow fluff
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Multi-colored nonpareil sprinkles
  • Optional: maraschino cherries and/or large bubblegum balls

Instructions

Cupcakes

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F and grease muffin pans or line pan with paper cups.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar. With an electric mixer on medium speed, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes).
  4. Add the eggs to the creamed butter, one at a time. Mix well after each addition.
  5. Stir in the vanilla.
  6. Using a mixer on low speed, add half of the flour and then half of the milk. Mix until well incorporated. Repeat with the remaining flour and milk.
  7. Fill each muffin cup 2/3 full and bake for 20 - 22 minutes or until golden brown and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes then transfer cupcakes to a wire rack to complete cooling process. Frost with icing when completely cooled.

Icing & Decorating

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, add the softened butter and vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until blended.
  2. Add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, and mix on medium speed until the frosting becomes light and creamy.
  3. Add the marshmallow creme and mix until well incorporated.
  4. With a Wilton icing tip (I used size 1A), frost each cupcake.
  5. Shake the nonpareil sprinkles on top of each cupcake, covering the marshmallow icing completely.
  6. Top each cupcake off with a maraschino cherry or bubble gum ball.
