I know you all have been missing my cupcake posts and I am sorry I have kept you waiting……well wait no longer!
Cherry and Blueberry Pie Cupcakes! Here is what they are supposed to look like;
First you need A TON of M&M’s in Red and Blue. I bought 2 bags and separated the 2 colors.
I liked that these cupcakes used just a few ingredients and I almost had everything in the house already.
and I pretty much love anything by this chubby little bastard
I had to make the frosting a light brown color so I used a few drops of yellow food coloring and a spoonful of cocoa powder.
These cupcakes a really simple too. You just need to frost the cupcake and add the M&M’s
The cupcakes need to be covered with a little edge left on the outside. If there are any spaces you can put frosting on the M&M and fill in the holes. That will also give the cupcake a little more depth.
Then I filled a piping bag with the frosting and cut the tip of to make the crisscross of the pie shell.
I bought a new tip for the crust of the pie
The crust was fairly easy to do.
I always make a mess when doing cupcakes, this time was no different.
You really need more M&M’s than I actually had. The 2 big bags only made about 11 cupcakes.
I brought them to Ron’s family BBQ and they were a big hit!
