I made a regular chocolate cake recipe and filled mini cupcake lines with the batter.
The kisses were plopped on top and pressed ever so slightly.
And I just baked them normally. The cupcake puffed up around them beautifully.
Using a regular (and delicious) chocolate buttercream, I piped spikes on top and asked my sister to toss a few green jimmies and some white nonpareils on to make them even cuter.
Don’t you love the carriers?
Each box was only about a dollar (and they’re reusable!) and it did an excellent job protecting the cupcakes while I was on route to the delivery site. In fact, these pictures were taken after a bumpy car ride and even the peaks still look beautiful.
