Ice Cream Cupcakes

by on Jun.15, 2010, under Yummies

Two of my favorite desserts have been combined…and my brain threatens to explode from the sheer awesomeness contained therein.

That’s right, you read correctly. Ice Cream + Cupcakes. Much like peanut butter and jelly, chips and salsa, and Sonny and Cher (oops!), this is a pairing of epic proportions. A combination to rival all such unions. One that will go down in history as a top desserts, bar none. Okay maybe that last bit is a trifle exaggerated…but not by much 😉

Joy the Baker has posted not one, but two versions on this delightfully delectable decadence (like what I did there??). I can think of nothing more refreshing (that does not involve an adult beverage) on a hot summer day then popping one of these gems into my mouth.

And for the brownie lover’s out there…

If your feeling really industrious, you could even make your own homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream as featured by our friends at Foodwhirl.

I will accept thanks for sharing this awesomeness with you via gifts. Preferably gifts of ice cream cupcakes 😀 Seriously, I’m not kidding. Make these and I will come visit and help you eat them!

This is a visually appealing and very simple craft project that could be easily adapted to a variety of holidays or special occasions. I made this for Easter, and I couldn’t find a suitable bowl, so I just decided to buy a cheap indoor plant pot and I think that carried the bouquet theme even further.

My Easter Cupcake Bouquet:

You’ll notice I had to fill in the top with some silk flowers that I thankfully had left over from another project. My recipe for 24 cupcakes did not quite make 24 for some reason.
