Susie s Mishap

So, I was preparing for my Iron Cupcake: Milwaukee competition but, I hit a bump in the road. Milwaukee has a lot of great frozen custard stands and I wanted to do an ode to that great Cream City treat. However, when I attempted to make a cone, this is what came out:

Bummer! Not only is it not the right shape, it's kind of hard to serve in a competition setting. So, you won't see the light of day little cupcake. Ohhhh, I made it cry:-(

But, even my mistakes are yummy!! It ended up being a really tasty frozen dessert! It is a chocolate cupcake filled with chocolate frozen custard frosted with whipped white icing and dipped in milk chocolate. So, get a fork and a knife and eat fast!

Susie's Smashed Frozen Cupcake:

Cake and Filling:
1 box (10 3/4 oz.) Devil's Food Cake Mix
1 pint frozen custard

3 tbs Meringue Powder
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup cold water

2 cups chopped semisweet chocolate
3 tbs vegetable oil

1. Prepare cupcakes according to the package directions. Cool completely.
2. While the cupcakes are baking, prepare the frosting. Beat powder and water for 4 minutes. In a microwave safe bowl, boil sugar, corn syrup and water for 5 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes. Add sugar to powder mixture and beat for 4 minutes.
3. Prepare dip by melting chocolate and oil in the microwave for 1 minute.
4. To assemble, create a divot in each cupcake with the open side of a cake decorator tip. Fill hole with frozen custard and replace divot to cover. Pipe with frosting and place in the freezer for 15 minutes to set. Once the frosting is set, dunk each cupcake in the dip and place on a wire rack over a cookie sheet to catch any drips. Then, place the cupcakes in the freezer to set, another 15 minutes.
5. Serve cold and freeze any leftovers.

Serves 24

Don't worry, I will publish my actual ICM entry tomorrow:-) Until then, enjoy these:-)

Kat said...

Hmmm...I think I have all the ingredients here. I could have the kids make them. And then when half disappear I can claim aliens visited. right?

Frizzy said...

Are you kidding me? I'm trying to be good and diet here! You're killing me with that picture and then to include the recipe is just MEAN! :) You and the man at Starbucks are out to get me I just know it! He messed up someone's drink and as I passed by he offered me the frozen mocha frap he had accidently made. Somehow I turned it down. Your cupcake on the otherhand would have done me in!

Rachel said...

Laural Out Loud said...

I thought it looked good enough to serve! Definitely good enough to eat. I'll have to file this away for a day when I feel adventurous in the kitchen.

I LOVE frozen custard. I wish we could get it here in California.

Oh, gosh...I'm either gonna have to make your creation, or book a flight to Milwaukee right now! Two things I just adore--custard and cupcakes--in one great creation! On a completely different note, please drop by my place today--we're featuring our regular Silly Sunday Sweepstakes. There are no winners, but it's a whole lotta fun!

Aunt Julie said...

Hmmmmmmmm...I'm one who likes to have her cake and ice cream and eat them, too. This looks perfect! BTW, got a Great New Giveaway going on over at my place, to commemorate my 100th post--please stop by!
