A couple months ago I splurged and bought myself a Babycakes Cupcake Maker. I originally had wanted to purchase the Babycakes Cake Pop Maker, but it wasn’t in stock I didn’t want to go home empty handed, so I went ahead and bought the mini cupcake maker. Since then, I have been trying to come up with fun ways to make cupcakes.
Last week I was looking through the pantry and seen a box of blueberry pancake mix. I thought it would be interesting to make some mix and put it in the cupcake maker to see how they would come out. When I made the mix, I followed the directions as if I was making waffles. They ended up coming out delicious and I had to put a little twist on them with some homemade blue frosting.
For those that have never made homemade frosting, all you need is some confectioners sugar, milk and maybe some vanilla extract. Put about a cup of confections sugar and pour just a teaspoon of milk in at a time until you get the frosting consistency. Then add a drop or two of food coloring.
