Experimenting with a Mini Cupcake Maker!

By: Christine
I was given a mini cupcake maker for Christmas this year. I knew this little machine would be perfect for making small batches of cupcakes & would be a great way for me to experiment with different recipes and ideas. 
 The mini cupcake maker makes seven cupcakes at a time.
I decided to experiment with making a brownie cupcake so I filled each cavity with brownie batter and baked them for around 8-12 minutes.
After baking, I let these brownie cupcakes cool. I made a peanut butter filling for these cupcakes using peanut butter and powdered sugar. Using a frosting bag & tip, I squeezed the filling into each cupcake. I frosted the cupcakes with chocolate and vanilla buttercream frosting.
These peanut butter filled cupcake brownies were an experiment and since they came out great, I decided to make them for my fiancé's birthday since he loves anything that is chocolate & peanut butter! I made the letters for "Happy Birthday" using red candy melts and placed them on top of the cupcakes!
In the future, I plan to experiment with other flavors and different flavor combinations using this mini cupcake maker!
