Cupcake Cocktail

Cupcake Cocktail
I invited a few friends and a few of my blogging friends over for a dessert themed brunch last Saturday. I thought I’d better serve a cupcake cocktail to top it all off! It was supposed to be a cupcake martini but I don’t own any martini glasses!
Cupcake Cocktail
I bought a bottle of Pinnacle whipped cream vodka while I was in the US. I wish I’d been able to find the cake vodka though. I topped off the drink with some brightly colored sprinkles! Sprinkles or frosting on the rim would also be a nice touch. 
I bought a cocktail shaker and jigger to measure everything. 
Cupcake Cocktail
makes 1 cocktail
50ml vodka (Cake or whipped cream vodka if you can get your hands on it. Vanilla vodka would also do.)
50ml milk
50ml single cream
1 tbs white cake mix
sprinkles for topping
Ice cubes
1. In a cocktail shaker mix the ice, vodka, milk and cream and shake vigorously. Pour into a glass and top with some sugar sprinkles. 
Enjoy your liquid cupcake! Thanks to my girlfriends for coming and to Andrea, Sarah and Jayne.

All I have to say is that these are awesome. Is it a donut? Is it a muffin? It’s a baked donut in the shape of a muffin that tastes like a donut…Whatever it is it’s fun and it’s tasty!

I wanted to make something really fun for national cupcake week but also quick since it’s a weeknight! I decided to try out the “Perfectly Chocolate” Hershey’s cupcake recipe. It’s essentially a one bowl recipe and I was curious to see if it compared to the Martha chocolate one I’m fond of.
