"Ice Cream" Cupcakes

cupcake with 'ice cream' icing


This is not actually a bowl of ice cream, it just looks like it! :)

Nope... it's a delicious, and more durable, cupcake. I didn't know quite what to make of these when I saw them in the case in my local Whole Foods, other than I had to get one!! There is some serious buttercream on these guys.

And the chocolate shell was delicious ;)

No recipe this time, since it's more about the decoration, but I would love to see if anyone gets around to making some like this!! I also wanted to leave you all with something sweet, since I'm heading out on vacation for the next couple of weeks. I'm sure I'll have a bunch of food pics to share when I get back!! :)

Wow! This is Alex, married to Liz from www.cupcakes.gr (or here: cupcakesgr.blogspot.com) and I must say, I've never tried the ice-cream cupcake. I'm off to show her your post!

Here in Nafplio (about an hour out of Athens, Greece) I'm guessing this baby will be absolutely fantastic (but then again, where wouldn't it?)

Thx!

Too cute, but what a load of frosting to eat!

Katie said...

That looks really delicious but I don't know if I could eat all of that buttercream.. it would definitely take a couple days! :P

I've got around making something like this too but it's not quite exactly this. I've made a cappuccino ice cream cake that resembles a cuppa cappuccino with froth and spoon here:

Is that considered? Haha!
