Then you will love Cotton Candy Cupcakes!! Robyn and I both love Cotton Candy Ice Cream (Kemps), and I got this crazy idea to try and make Cotton Candy Cupcakes! They turned out pretty tasty, although, if I can find the LorAnn Cotton Candy Flavoring...they will be even better!
I used a regular white cake mix- and made according to the box directions.
I then split the batter into 2 bowls and added blue food coloring to one and red to the other to make pink. To the pink frosting, I also added 1 1/2 tsp of Raspberry Extract.
I added a little blue batter to each cupcake liner...
And then topped the blue with some of the pink batter. Bake at 350 for 22-25 minutes.
For the frosting, I used my favorite recipe, Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting.
I then used my mixer to stir about 3 oz of cotton candy into the frosting. And I colored the frosting pink and blue as well :)
I put pink frosting down one side of my piping bag and blue down the other to get a swirl of color when I piped the frosting.
Top with more cotton candy for a fancy treat! These are VERY sweet...and you shouldn't add the cotton candy until you want to serve them, or it starts to dissolve into the frosting :)
