It’s blog hop time agai! I’ve teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers to give you “All Things Spring.” I’ve got something a little different today – sour nerd cupcakes. I know, right? Sour nerds… in a cupcake? Bear with me…..
I went to a candy tasting party at Blickenstaff’s a few weeks ago and I was literally BLOWN AWAY with all the amazing candy they had. Old, new, vintage, and all delish. One thing that Handsome and I particularly loved were these sour nerds. Needless to say, we were all on a sugar buzz, but these little sours kept coming back to us and we thought, “What if we made a sour nerd cupcake?”
Would it be weird?
Would it be good?
Would the crunchy texture of the “nerd” hold inside the cake?
And because I always wanted to make a mess – I had to take one of these shots. I’ve got some room for improvement, but for my first intentional “spill?” Very fun.
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 c. sour nerds
- Stabilized Whipped Cream
Prepare cake mix as directed.
Once it is well blended, gently fold in the sour nerds.
Bake as directed on the box mix.
Frost with stabilized whipped cream.
Top with sour nerds.
And you’re done. SUPER easy. Again – I’d recommend using the stabilized whipping cream option for frosting. TOO easy and super yum.
