Good things come in small packages. Mini cupcakes are no exception. I think there is a guilt-less factor in eating mini cupcakes; at least until you get to the 4th or 5th one.
I have seen tons of businesses built around mini cupcakes, which are usually so gorgeous. I LOVE mini cupcakes, but they have their challenges. They are easy to over bake and limit your decorating options, plus I think they take a little bit more work because there are more of them.
I wanted to try something different with these minis. First, I baked them without a liner, then I dipped them in white chocolate, rolled them in sprinkles and topped them off with cake batter frosting. My friends inhaled them by the handfuls.
You can do this with any flavor of cupcake and colored sprinkles, but I chose pink, red and white since Valentines Day is coming up! First things first, bake yourself some mini cupcakes (without the liners) and be sure to grease your pan. You can check my previous post for tips on cupcake baking.
