Fla-Vor-Ice Cupcakes

...made with these.....!

....for Sweetest Kitchen's Mystery Box Cupcake Challenge - actually the flavor is a "childhood memory" going with the flav-or-ice cupcakes from the summer!...i so loved ice pops when i was a kid, maybe it was the colors they came in, maybe they just tasted so great in the blazing heat, maybe it was the combo of the crunchy ice pop and drinking the juice as it melted in the plastic (admit it you loved that too!) or maybe i loved seeing everyone's colored tongues after eating them, whatever it was they still make me smile....didn't get them all the time either, so when we had them it was a order of pref for flavors was blue (i'm sure it's some sort of raspberry flavor, but it was always called blue...then lime, grape, cherry, and orange came dead last for me....figured the flavors could fit with cupcakes....and they did--very pretty pastel colors and subtle ice-popy flavor.....added one "giant" flav-or-ice (unfrozen) in place of the liquid in vanilla cupcakes and added almost one pop to some vanilla buttercream icing....also "injected" some of the liquid into the cooled cupcakes as well....and here they are:

...and some of the process...divided the mix (without liquid) and then added an ice pop to each could add more coloring to get the colors more like the ice pops themselves, but i kinda like the subtle pastels they came out.....

...don't mind the old cupcake pans...they are super old....i think they were my moms....

...didn't get any pics of it, but injected some ice pop into the centers to give it a little more worked pretty well....

...then frosted with the flavored buttercreams.....yum.
