Keep Calm - Have an Ice Creakm Cupcake (Recipe)

Updated on December 15, 2014

A cupcake is the closest thing to heaven...

Cupcakes are just delightful, little packages of sweet therapy just for you, imagine a cupcake made with ice-cream.....

Whether you are looking for creative cupcake decorating ideas, cupcake recipes, or even a special or unique present for someone who you know loves cupcakes. Then this page is dedicated to you.

I love cupcakes and I love a little saying that comes to mind.

''Life is short -- have your cupcake and eat it too.''

Cupcakes are wonderful, you do not need to have a masters degree in baking to make these, even the most kitchen-challenged can create delightful little surprises, we sometimes will bake special cupcakes for relatives putting them into a lovely decorated box.

This is a picture of my daughters birthday cake, however these little gems are our favourite.

  • Prep time: 10 min

  • Ready in: 30 min
  • Yields: 12

Ingredients

  • 2 cups premium vanilla ice cream very soft
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

      There is no junk food in our house right now and I think that a cupcake would be the perfect treat. I'll have to try the ice cream cupcake. It looks sooooo good.

      I love to look @ cupcakes. I love the idea of them. But, being a recovering perfectionist, the peeling the paper and all the little crumblies drive me crazy (thus the present tense of recovering rather than past tense). ;) Great cupcake & "love of cupcake" lens!
