Bitches Be Baking: Butterbeer Cupcakes.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone I care about smile.

Yesterday, I surprised my leader Brandi (that’s what we call mangers/supervisors at my job) with a plate of butterbeer cupcakes.

What’s butterbeer you ask? It’s just Harry Potter’s way of saying butterscotch!

Brandi & I have been talking about cakes & she told me how her favorite flavor is butterbeer,

so I decided to make her some for Christmas.

Stick around to see how these little beauties were made!

1 Box of Vanilla Cake Mix

2 Eggs

1/2 Cup of Vegetable Oil

1 1/2 Tablespoons of Butter Flavored Extract

1/2 Cup of Cream Soda

1 Cup of Water

1 Bag of Butterscotch Chips

1 Cup of Heavy Cream

Buttercream Frosting

Before we start I want to show you guys these cute little cupcake foils that I’m using!

These adorable little gingerbread themed foils were a gift from none other than #Bae.

Oh also, I know what you’re thinking,

“Another boxed cake recipe?”

The only reason why I didn’t make this one from scratch because I made these at about 11pm at night before work the next day.

I promise my next excursion into baking will be scratch made, just for you guys. 🙂

Okay, so start off by combining the cake mix in a bowl with the oil and water & mixed until that absorbs.

After that, add the two eggs & the butter extract & mix that as well.

So, about the butter extract: it’s very important to have for this recipe.

It gives the cupcakes a buttery taste that won’t be there if you use actual butter.

I found it right next to the vanilla extract in Meijer.

After that is done, add the cream soda to the mixture as well.

I then used an ice cream scoop to plot the batter in the cupcake foils, then bakes them for about 15 minutes on 350 degrees.

Once those are done baking, let them cool so you can frost them.

While the cupcakes were cooling down, I started on the butterscotch.

I used the double boil method (a pit of boing water underneath, a bowl on top of that) to melt the butterscotch, & added heavy cream & stirred that together.

Once everything was done, I frosted the cupcake (well, Wonda did) & I drizzled the butterscotch on top.

Brandi L-O-V-E-D them!

And I was beyond happy to see her happy.

Can’t wait to make these again!
