iTwixie’s BFF Cupcake Recipe!


It’s sooo easy!  Grab a parent or your BFF and make these!  Then send in a picture so we can all see your beautiful BFF Cupcakes!

Heat these in a saucepan ’til butter is melted and the cocoa is mixed in:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/8 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup water

Mix these in a bowl and then add to the saucepan mixture and mix in:

  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 cup sugar
Mix these in a bowl and then add to saucepan mixture and mix in:
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg, beaten first
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Spoon the batter into cupcake tins with cupcake papers, when it is nice and smooth.  Fill each cupcake about 3/4 full.
Bake at 350 degrees Farenheit, for about 20 minutes.
Make a glaze while the cupcakes are baking, by mixing these ingredients together:
  • 1 Tablespoon of butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon of milk
  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
Lightly cover each warm cupcake with this glaze to seal in the freshness of the cake.
Now, the fun part!  Make the pretty “frosting” STAR!

Mix in a bowl:
  • 1 egg white, beaten until frothy (use a pasteurized egg white or cook it over a double-boiler)
  • 1 cup almond paste
  • 1 or more cups of powdered sugar — keep adding a little more until mixture is a paste
  • use a drop of food coloring that you like!
Roll this paste out and cut into stars for the top of the cupcakes.
Voila!  BFF Cupcakes!  Aren’t they beautiful?  Send YOURS in for us all to see!  Do you have any fave food gifts to make?
