Makes a dozen Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Cupcakes
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Wisk and set aside. In another bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs, mix until combined. Alternate adding dry ingredients and milk, mixing between each addition.
Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full. Bake 18-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt your candy melts in the microwave on 30 second intervals.
Add melted candy melts to a piping bag, and snip off the tip. Fill the letter molds with candy melts- whichever letters you’d like to use on your cupcakes. Put the letter molds into the refrigerator.
Then, in a large bowl combine butter, cream cheese, and vanilla, mix well. Slowly add powdered sugar and mix until icing forms and is mixed well. Set aside.
Allow your cupcakes to cool completely before frosting. Frost cupcakes and top with a palm tree and candy letters.
