So, this weekend I've been cake free...and for some reason I was missing not having a cake to do this weekend. icon_confused.gif

Anywho, I got to thinking..."I want to make cupcakes for ME"

Hmmm, what kind? I don't exactly want to do plain ole' boring vanilla or chocolate...

Hmmm, my kiddos are munching on mini-candy canes. (lightbulb moment here)

Candy-Cane (peppermint) cupcakes!

All I did, in addition to my regular vanilla sponge cake recipe, I added about 10 beaten-with-a-rolling-pin packages of minature candy-canes.

I ended up with about 18 regular sized cuppies, and about a dozen mini-cupcakes. (for my kids! icon_biggrin.gif )

They're fabulous! Just a hint of candy-cane in each bite, definately not overpowering. And, for a cupcake...they're awfully "refreshing". Heehee.

I topped them off with a vanilla bean buttercream swirl with a dash of crushed candy canes on top. Delish! If anyone hasn't tried this before...DO IT. icon_smile.gif

Those do sound yummy! I only wish I had some candy canes on hand!

I want to do this for my lil and his friends, did the candy cane bits melt down, or did they stay hard?
