Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries

Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. For the cake portion, I chose a One Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe because 1. it's quick 2. it is easy, and 3. it fits my prerequisite for a light ending on date night. I should say, a light ending provided you don't eat too many. The cakes are just sweet enough, and have a light, fluffy crumb - the perfect vehicle for rich chocolate buttercream. Notes for flaming strawberries:Any alcohol below 80 proof will not ignite well. Shaina made a margarita version of this on Babble Food.

My own children were amazed at how real these little cakes appeared. They were almost too cute to cut into and eat but everyone loves a fresh peach right? I had spotted these in a magazine years and years ago (maybe Southern Living?) And just today thought to make them. A piece of cinnamon stick and a peppermint leaf complete the finishing touches.

So when it came time for our school’s bake sale a week ago, I thought Rainbow Cupcakes would be fun for a change.

I was right, they were the first ones to go because children cannot resist color and lots of it. They even beat out the luscious chocolate cupcakes I made. It is Rainbow Cupcakes from now on! This is simple to do by dividing the batter equally among six small bowls- I used yellow cake mix for deeper hues. Color each bowl of batter a different color. Layer colored batter in the order of a rainbow’s colors into cupcake liners and bake according to the package directions. I wanted the frosting to go in a swirl of rainbow colors too so I used a technique Ma taught me years ago from her cake decorating classes. Unfortunately I did not have jewel toned frosting colors to match the cupcakes, so I did mix jewel tones with pastels.

At the bake sale we placed each cupcake in a 9 ounce plastic punch cup and invited the children to decorate the cupcakes they had purchased. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough + Cupcake = The BEST Cupcake. Ever. Recipe. 20 Most Inventive Cupcakes Known To Man.
