Double Birthday Cupcakes (Decorating technique)

Last week I made these cupcakes for my sister-in-law and dear friend Becky (and the BEST mom to twins everrr) for her birthday.

Sometimes recipes like this from Pinterest just keep nagging at me until I make them.

Also I won't ever say no to a reason to buy a whole bag of mini peanut butter cups.

These are super fast and easy and you can use any cupcakes or frosting you like.  Plus they're almost husband friendly.

(As in... there's only so many ways to screw up putting a peanut butter cup on top of a cupcake and adding sprinkles. So you can totally request these for your birthday.)

Did I mention you get to eat all the extra peanut butter cups?

Double Birthday Cupcakes

Put frosting in a piping bag and use a 1M tip to pipe a swirl on each cupcake.  (One low swirl will do.  If you try to pipe two or three layers so it is tall, it will just get smushed when you put the peanut butter cup on, so don't bother.)

Add an unwrapped mini Reeses cup (brown wrapper still on, but foil off) to the frosting and pipe a smaller swirl with the same 1M tip.  Top with sprinkles and a Sixlet for the cherry.

Pin It!
