I am not one to usually write reviews but this recipe deserves the time. This is an OUTSTANDING recipe. These cupcakes appeal to all tastes. I made 130 of them for a cupcake tower for my daughter's graduation. They are not fussy however they are special enough. Everyone LOVED them... even the chocolate lovers. I would also like to add that the frosting held up in 90+ degrees in high humidity. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It has been added to my favorites in my collection and already been passed on to several family members.
I'm not sure why it wasn't very goo, but the icing definitely helped a little.
I wasn't too sure about the combination of brownies and cake, but these are incredible! The trio of chocolate, strawberry, & vanilla are just perfect! They are also quite visually appealing. Super sweet, but hey it's a cupcake not a muffin!!
Absolutely wonderful! I wasn't sure how these would turn out, but my anti-sweets husband LOVED them. They do need to stay in the oven another 4-5 minutes so they cook all the way, but they are wonderful.
I tried this yesterday and they were the best cupcakes I've ever made. Very moist, and extrememly delicious! Like other posts, I agree that there is too much brownie mix to cupcake mix. For 24 cupcakes I used a box of the cake mix and only half of the brownie mix... and it came out to the perfect proportions in my opinion. I filled each liner with 1tbs of brownie batter and 3tbs of cake batter. Since this was inspired by the neopolitan ice cream as well... I went ahead and piped my vanilla frosting into a McDonald's styled icecream swirl, adding a cherry on top for extra visual appeal. Definitely will be trying this recipe again!
Love this recipe. Chocolate and strawberry taste so good together and the frosting is perfect. I ran out of the strawberry cake mix after filling 30 cupcakes so I put the extra brownie mix into a small pan and baked it so I have brownies too. I used 2 different types of cupcake pans, 1 Faberware which is heavier and a little darker and my 40 year old Sears aluminum, so 1/2 of my cupcakes were burnt on the bottom. The ones that were not burnt are delicious. Will definitely make these again.
Thanks for the great recipe! These really do taste like neapolitan ice cream and they are so pretty!
I made these cupcakes for work and they came out very soft and everyone loved them!
