Bubblegum Cupcakes

I was inspired and intrigued by this photo. When I was younger, I was in love with this blue bubblegum flavored ice cream at the nearest waterpark. It had real gumballs throughout. So naturally when I saw a bubblegum cupcake, I wanted to create it myself!

Whenever I make cupcakes now,  I put my batter in piping bags so that I don’t make a mess when filling my liners. A big ziploc bag would work too, just cut one of the corners.

The actual cupcakes didn’t come out as pink as I wanted, but at least I had good pink liners on them.

Look how pink I got my frosting! I used my normal buttercream recipe, but substituted half of the vanilla for bubblegum flavoring.

I had to get gumballs to decorate them. Apparently it’s hard to find gumballs in all the stores around here. This is how I had to buy them.

They turned out pretty cute. Too bad I work during all daylight hours and couldn’t get better lighting for these photos!

The taste? Exactly like bubblegum. It’s good. A little weird because it’s so much like bubblegum, that you expect what’s in your mouth to be chewy. Very strange sensation, worth a bite!
