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
3 eggs

Cupcake Ingredients:

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


  1. hmm... cake mix hmmm..

    nevertheless they look pretty and i'm pretty sure no one would say no if this is in front of them. i don't have a sweet tooth but i want to rape these cupcakes.

  2. Hello, Ziggy! Yup mao na' akong reaction w/ cake mix before. My food blogger friends convinced me to give it a try, and it's pretty good.

    Thanks for the visit!=;)
