Sugar Swings! Serve Some: Summer=Fla Vor Ice!

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Summer=Fla Vor Ice! i'm a bit obsessed with colors...and multiple colors of the same thing...always have been and always i *had* to get the kids ice pops for the summer cuz that's the thing to do (ya ya i know artificial flavors and colors....yada yada yada, i know but as long as it's in moderation ...)......and i've always loved the rainbow colors fla vor ice comes in (blue being my absolute fav) i was thinking....what about cupcakes with ice pops as the flavoring?...googled it but didn't really find anything so had to wing it....this is based on a boxed recipe...

You'll need these:


1 box white cake
1 box of vanilla pudding (probably not needed but wanted to try it to see what the pudding did for the texture/flavor)
4 egg whites
1/3 cup oil

mix and divide equally (i eyeballed it) into 6 bowls...add one ice pop (unfrozen) to each of the bowls and mix (FYI 1 "giant" flav or ice is almost 40 mL):

and bake (aren't the colors pretty?!):

....i used a syringe and injected about 1.5 mL of flav or ice into each cupcake to give additional flavor....then iced them...i used homemade vanilla buttercream i already had made and used about 30 mL of flav or ice to tint/flavor the icing...

...i really love the subtle color and ice pop-y flavor these have...there is tropical punch, berry punch (or blue!), grape, strawberry, lemon-lime, and orange....yum! They were pretty good and the pudding made them really moist.
