What you'll need:

  • - Large round pastry tip
  • - Chocolate cupcakes (store-bought, from a box mix or homemade)
  • - Seedless raspberry jam
  • - Vanilla buttercream frosting (store-bought or homemade)
  • - Small ice cream scoop
  • - Chocolate sauce
  • - Rainbow sprinkles
  • - Whipped cream
  • - Marachino cherries

How to:

  1. Press a large round pastry tip about an inch into the top of each cupcake, then use a small spoon to scoop a piece out of the top to make a small well. Repeat with all the cupcakes.
  2. Spoon about 2 tablespoons raspberry jam into each well, and add the cake "caps" on top.
  3. Top each cupcake with a small scoop of vanilla buttercream using the ice cream scoop.
  4. Decorate the cupcakes to look like ice cream sundaes with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, sprinkles, dollops of whipped cream and cherries on top.

Baking Tip: Mix a teaspoon of espresso powder into your chocolate cupcake batter to intensify the chocolate flavor.
