I got a hankering to make this monochromatic/combined frosting design i found HERE . I finally made them! Made these cupcakes for a co-worker who just graduated from high school.
I first thought of food coloring but then it'll make the cupcakes ordinary, so i decided on nutella and peanut butter. I love both plus i know it will be a perfect color combination with out compromising the flavor. The end result? PERFECTION. Oh did i mention i used cake mix? Yes..i did!
1 Yellow cake mix box
1 C water
1/3 C softened butter
Follow the cake mix box instructions
** 1 box will yield 24 cupcakes.
2 C confectioners’ sugar
8 oz cream cheese, softened
5 T unsalted butter, softened
1 t vanilla extract
3-4 T smooth peanut butter
4-5 T nutella
Mix and beat the first 4 ingredients on medium speed for at least 5 minutes or until all are incorporated.
Divide the frostings into 2.
1st half- mix in the peanut butter. Set aside
2nd half- mix in the nutella. Set aside
Put the peanut butter frosting on one side of a piping bag.
Then put in the nutella frost on the opposite side
