Blow Pop Cupcakes

Blow Pop Cupcakes with a Blow Pop Topper

So the other day I went to the supermarket with my friend.

It was a quick trip in and out only to grab the essentials.

We had just come out of the gym where I had been lifting 7 lb weights like a stone cold machine.

When I got up to the front of the line I realized that I forgot to grab lentils, the item that I initially went in to buy.  Of course.

My friend came to the rescue and said she would grab them for me while I checked out.

So I politely said to the cashier, “Where are the lentils?”

No response. Eyes Shift.

“Excuse me, where are the lentils?”

Mumbles

“The LENTILS, where would I find them?”

{Small voice} Aisle 4.

My friend retrieved the ever-important lentils and I paid for my items as planned.

On our way out to the car my friend turned to me and said, “You are kind of intimidating.”

She actually said that to me.

I’m all, “WHAA?!?  Are you joking?”

She said that I basically intimidated the cashier into a mumbling mess.

Now for 3 days straight I have been obsessing over whether or not I am an “intimidator”.

A lentil intimidating fool.

Did I use a devil voice when asking for the lentils?  Did my bulging 7 lb pumping biceps scare the cashier into a shifty pile of mumbles?  Did the thought of someone eating lentils disgust her into not wanting to speak?  Maybe I had crazy hair after my low-impact workout and she mistook me for Medusa.  That, certainly, would explain her lack of eye contact…I mean, the fear of turning to stone can do that to a person.

So I did what we all know I shouldn’t do.  I asked my husband.

He promptly agreed with my friend.  And by agree I mean, not answer but give me a deer in headlights stare.

A man intimidated.

I just don’t see how anyone who invents such things as Blow Pop Cupcakes could be menacing or formidable.

So I am basically working everyday now, trying not to scare cashiers.  It’s my new thing.

Maybe I will just carry cupcakes around and pass them out so people won’t be frightened.

Yeah, that’s what I will do.

So let’s begin.

Blow Pop Cupcakes…or more specifically, Strawberry Marshmallow filled Strawberry Cupcake with Bubble Gum Marshmallow Buttercream.  That’s a mouthful, literally and figuratively.

First you need to get to the store and buy some of this stuff…

Have you seen it?  It’s a powder they sell down the baking aisle that you can add to frosting to flavor it.

You Duncan Hines people are pretty smart.

I chose Bubble Gum flavor…the least intimidating of the bunch.

You can certainly add this to canned frosting…actually I think that’s the whole idea…but you know how I feel about canned frosting, so I whipped up some of my own.

Just toss the contents of the packet into your frosting and mix away…

This is what it will look like…

Gorgeous, pink and packed with bubblegum flavor.

Next I baked up some Strawberry cupcakes…using a box mix.

Say something, I dare you.

When the cupcakes were cooled I cut out a hole in each and stuffed a big strawberry marshmallow into each.  Boo-yah!  (Do people still say boo-yah?)

I may or may not have eaten the scraps.  It’s what intimidators do.  They eat the scraps.

Then I filled a piping bag (fitted with a Wilton 1A tip) with my delicious bubblegum frosting and piped away.

Finally I stuck a Blow Pop up in there.  Just in case it wasn’t sweet enough 😉

And in case you’re interested, here’s the internals…

The strawberry marshmallow on the inside is a fun surprise.

Kid food at its finest.

    You could definitely see your enthusiasm within the article you write.

    The arena hopes for more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to say how they believe.
    At all times follow your heart.

  2. Loved your cupcake recipe and marshmallow frosting recipe. One question re the frosting. One recipe calls for butter and marshmallow fluff only. The other calls for butter, shortening and marshmallow fluff. Is this an error, or are these 2 different recipes?

    1. These are two different recipes.. I made the alteration with the addition of the flavor packet ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Just made these … Amazing! I used about 3/4 of the bubble gum packet for a lighter taste and added a tablespoon cream cheese to cut the sweetness a bit.. Also left out the marshmallow center but they were so awesome! Thanks of this great idea and helping me find this awesome frosting flavoring! Bubble gum yum!

  4. Your cupcakes look wonderfully fun! I have been using kool aid for years to flavor frostings but did not realize that bc had come out with these.

  5. I think because you posted these on my BDAY that it’s ok for me to tell you that
    you are after my own heart! I bought some of that Bubble Gum flavoring but haven’t tried it
    yet only because my kids are bigger now and I think I’d eat the whole batch myself!
    Thanks for the inspiration!
