I think I might be a cupcake genius.
Oh yes. I made Banana Split Cupcakes.
They were all kinds of awesome.
Banana cupcakes, filled with strawberry preserves, topped with vanilla butter cream, hot fudge, rainbow jimmies (sprinkles if you’re not from around here), with a cherry on top.
As Emeril would say – BAM!
I used this recipe from Betty Crocker (minus the chocolate chips, plus one box instant banana pudding) for the banana cupcake batter. I had my handy dandy cupcake plunger to make room for the strawberry preserves, and I used my small scoop from Pampered Chef to make the icing look like scoops of ice cream.
If you’re looking for a butter cream icing recipe this is my go-to.
If you’re looking for one of these cupcakes you’re out of luck. We ate them all.
