While I love spending time in the kitchen, I’ve never been much of a baker. That’s why I was so excited to receive Batterbox which includes simple instructions that anyone can follow. The March shipment arrived in a branded box with the contents carefully wrapped instead. This month’s featured recipe is for Surprise Vanilla Springtime Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. Yum! Let’s get to baking…
While the subscription box included most of the ingredients to make the cupcakes, there are a few items that I purchased separately including milk, eggs, butter, and shortening.
First, I preheated the oven and linted a cupcake pan with the cute yellow cupcake liners.
To make the cupcake batter, I whipped the room temperature butter with the sugar then added the wet and dry ingredients. Once the batter was ready, I filled each of the cupcake liners and popped the pan into the oven.
After 20 minutes, the cupcakes were ready to come out. They were a perfect golden color and smelled absolutely amazing! Ater letting the cupcakes completely cool, I cut a small hole in the center of each of them.
I placed two Jordan Almonds in each cupcake and start preparing the buttercream frosting. I’ve never made my own frosting before and it was surprisingly easy to do! After mixing the ingredients together, I added a few drops of food coloring to give the frosting a bright green hue.
The subscription box included a piping bag and tip for easy frosting. This was my first time using a piping bag so my piping skills weren’t the greatest. The frosting still has a great texture and look to it.
For the final touch, I added a marshmallow Peep on top of each cupcake. Super cute!
The best part of these cupcakes is the surprise almond “eggs” in the inside! The cupcakes were super moist and delicious.
As someone who doesn’t bake, I was really pleased with the way my cupcakes turned out! The recipe itself was really creative and very easy to follow. My Surprise Vanilla Springtime Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting looked great and tasted even better. While I really enjoyed my baking experience with Batterbox, the box itself is a bit expensive for what’s inside. If you have some extra funds and want the convenience of a service that makes it easy to create fabulous desserts, then Batterbox is for you.
