Bubble Gum Cupcakes

               I had a little girl's party to go to recently, and I offered to make the cupcakes.

So I asked her what flavor she wanted, thinking it would be like, ya know, vanilla or

something.  Clearly I do not know little girls.

She looked up at me, and yelled "Bubble Gum!"

"Uh, OK" I responded all stupidly, thinking, 'How am I going to make bubblegum cupcakes?"

The answer presented itself to me smack-dab in the middle of the baking aisle in Market



I couldn't believe I had forgotten about this stuff!

Tell me you've heard of the Duncan Hines frosting creations.

This stuff has been all over the Internet, and I can't believe I had forgotten about it!

They have soo many flavor choices, my favorites being Cotton candy, cinnamon roll, and

mint chocolate. I can't wait to try them all!

And of course, they also had bubble gum!


Isn't it purdy?

Also, I had to make these gluten-free to accommodate everyone at the party, and this week

was too busy to make my own cake from scratch, so  I did some searching and found this:

Stonewall Kitchen Vanilla Cupcake mix!

I would have preferred a white cupcake for these particular cupcakes, but I had to make do

with what I had.

The cupcakes worked perfectly with the frosting!

I personally loved the frosting. It tasted just like bubblegum!
