Here's what you (mainly I) have been waiting for...I made and tried the new cupcake wellingtons Cupcake Project came up with just a few days ago! It's actually very easy to do:
First, take your favorite cupcake and unwrap it. I used my all natural banana cake.
Next, I cut each cupcake in half and filled their centers with marshmallows. (You can certainly skip this step, or used a filled cupcake.)
Then, I put their tops on and piled on the dark chocolate chips. (Cupcake Project used a frosting to top hers, so feel free to do that...or come up with your own idea!)
Lastly, I wrapped the cakes up in prepared puff pastry, slapped on a little egg wash for color and sprinkled them with sugar crystals so they'll shimmer! They went into a 400 degree oven until the pastry was cooked and golden brown.
Now...the best part of all...The Tasting!
Mmmm, mmmm, mmmmmmmmm! Talk about something spectacular!! These little treats are warm, gooey, chocolaty and pretty much scrumdibiliumptous! I served mine with ice cold milk- there may quite possibly be nothing better than this...I will say, the marshmallows melted to the point of nonexistence, so that was a little disappointing. But, one thing that surprised me was the cupcake did not dry out...I was a little worried about it being baked twice! I don't know if "every cupcake should be wrapped in puff pastry," but overall, this was a fabulous way to change it up a bit!
