Ideas For Icing A Cupcake/waffled Cake Sandwich?

Okay, I know it's weird, but bear with me. These are for a charity bake sale.


My thought was to appeal to kids. Make cupcake waffles in my animal shaped waffle iron (which will make a thin, elephant/lion/giraffe shaped waffled cake). Turn them into "sandwich cupcakes" by topping one with frosting and then placing a matching shaped cupcake waffle on to, a la sandwich cookies like oreos, except with cupcake waffles and frosting.


Am I making sense?


Anyway, I am unsure what type of filling/icing to use. Do you think a standard buttercream will hold up? Or should I look for something else? (Like a cookie filling recipe.)

I understand what you are going for and I think it's a nifty idea!  I would go for a relatively thin layer of crusting buttercream.  That way you still get the cupcake "cake and frosting taste" but they can be wrapped if needed and frosting won't get all over the place or squish out when the kids bite. I know regionally sandwich style desserts vary, but biting in to a whoopie pie full of a thick layer of frosting just grosses me out.  


Maybe you could also roll it so the filling had sprinkles or mini chocolate chips on the outside.  Or maybe mix that in the frosting.  Just a thought!

I am in love with all things waffle iron recently so your idea is very interesting.  Having a hard time this afternoon replying to this thread and posted one of my pics so I could attach it for you.  Hope you can actually see it!


Anyway, my tip for you is to keep all waffles on a wire rack to keep the bottom from getting all soggy for as long as possible.


Good luck!
