My Little Pony Cutie Cupcakes

 

Today I made My Little Pony Mrs Cake Cutie Mark Cupcakes with my special guest Austin Mahone! I really enjoy making nerdy themed goodies and decorating them. I'm not a pro, but I love baking as a hobby.

Yield: Makes about 24 cupcakes

 

Things you'll need

Ingredients
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Sugar
  • 1 jar Maraschino cherries
  • 1/4 cup Vegetable shortening

  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 5 egg whites
  • 1 Stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup Milk

Let's get started!

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the vanilla and almond extract.
  4. Add the egg whites one at a time beating well in each addition.
  5. Place your milk in a measuring cup and add the cherry syrup until it reaches 1 cup.
  6. Alternate adding the dry ingredients and the milk into the wet ingredients, starting and ending with the dry.
  7. Scoop the batter into decorating bags and fill the prepared liners.
  8. Bake at 350F for about 11 minutes. Let it cool completely.

Time to decorate!
