Popsicle Cupcake Minis

Pin It
Summer is my fave!
Flip flops, evening bike rides, garden fresh veggies, pool time and popsicles.
Yay summer!

I decided to make mini cupcakes to celebrate the warmer temperatures and I have to say I think
these may be the cutest cupcakes I have ever made!
I love them!

To make the popsicles I cut toothpicks in half and stuck them into Mike and Ike candies.
The Tropical Typhoon colors are perfect for summer.

I would not recommend serving these to children, but if you do, make sure to remove the toothpicks first.

Popsicle Cupcake Minis

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a mini cupcake pan with liners.

Make your favorite flavor of cupcake using a box mix or homemade.
Bake cupcakes for 10-12 minutes.
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Vanilla Buttercream

3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 cups confectioners sugar
1 T milk or heavy cream
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

In the bowl of your stand mixer add butter and beat for about 1 minute.
Add confectioners sugar one cup at a time.
Add milk and vanilla extract and beat until light and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes.
Place frosting into a piping bag and pipe frosting onto cooled cupcakes.  
Top with sprinkles and a candy popsicle.

Enjoy your spring and summer my sweet friends!
