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.
- Cool completely
- 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.
