Neapolitan cupcakes w/ cream cheese frosting

Share

So I was originally planning on posting my painted rug and new chest today…BUT cute little Emme “painted” over my new rug with liquid foundation. If you follow me on facebook or instagram you saw the damage. :( I’m thinking I’ll paint over it again because that makeup is not coming out. SO hopefully I can get that done today, so you can see it tomorrow. :)

As for today… I’m going to share these yummy neapolitan cupcakes I made for my friend Kristyn’s Birthday party this past weekend. They were super easy to make and turned out delicious. The strawberry + brownie combo = yummo!

  10. E DIFICIL,PARA MIM,ENTENDER,PERFEITAMENTE,TUDO ,MAS ,Acho que entendi o seu proposito e achei muito solidario . QUE DEUS ABENCOE VOCES POR ISTO ,POR SE PROPOREM A COMPARTILHAR COM OUTRAS PESSOAS COISAS TAO BELAS E INTERESSANTES. PARABENS E MUITAS ,MAS MUITAS REALIZACÓES ,VOCES MERECEM. OBRIGADA .MAGALI.

  11. These look amazing! Just to confirm, I fill 1/3 of the cupcake liner with brownie mix and top with cake batter (all uncooked and together), right? By doing that, do they still stay separated? Will they cook evenly? Or do I have to semi-cook the brownie, then add cake batter and bake again? 

    • I Heart Naptime Reply

      Right! You do not pre-bake the brownie mix. As long as you spoon carefully, the batters stay separated but cook together to make a wonderful cupcake. :)

  12. How many cupcakes does this make?
