Let me just start off by saying how much I love whoppers. Not the burgers, but the chocolate covered malt ball candy. They’re delicious! It only makes sense to use them in just about every dessert I can think of. The only problem with that is if they are left out or in the wrong temperature, they gradually become stale. Oh well, that doesn’t stop me from baking with them.
The problem with this cupcake was that I couldn’t really get it to be “cupcake material.” The texture was off and they weren’t as light and fluffy. They sank in in the middle and didn’t seem to cook all the way, even though they were. As for the frosting, I’m an impatient girl and although heavy whipping cream always intrigued me, I’d rather not wait ten minutes to fluff up some frosting, only to have it sink back down later on. Despite all the trouble, my brother was the first one to take a taste and said, “Kimmy, out of all the things that you have baked, THESE are my favorite. They’re DELICIOUS!” Now, he has tried basically everything that I have baked and I bake A LOT, so that’s quite a bold statement. Nevertheless, they still turned out pretty and the batter was delicious.
