This July marks the final chapter of the Harry Potter saga, and as a long-time fan of the books and films, I wanted to submit a recipe worthy of Potter and cupcake fans alike. After deciding that 'Berttie-Bott's Every Flavored Cupcake' would result in endless cupcake mayhem and serious sleep deprivation from all-night baking parties, the next best thing seemed to be a cupcake modeled after the famous concoction of butterbeer.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup room temperature, unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 tsp butter flavoring (such as butter-buds)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup cream soda
  • Butterscotch chips
  • Cinnamon

Frosting:
  • 8 oz. marshmallow fluff
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • Powdered sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Salt
  • Caramel or Chocolate Drizzle (for decoration)

 
That's AWESOME! Especially love the icing pattern!

PS, If you wanna have a potter feast, I recommend Bertie Boots Every Flavored Beans, and also Chocolate frogs!

As for decor, try LED candles hanging from the ceiling like in the grand hall, and also a platform 9 3/4 screen hanging in front of the door your so your guests can run right in!

Im a Potterhead, sue me! ?

I like it! I'm not so big on the decorating, no offense meant. I'm going to try my own soon. I think I'll make my own butterbeer first and then add THAT to the batter. =)

Its usually in the seasoning aisle.
These look amazing! And it seems so simple. One question, though. Where can I get butter flavouring? I've never heard of it before. Is it something I can buy in my local grocery store? Is it with the extracts?
My dad found it at a nearby grocery store, but unfortunately I'm not quite sure which aisle it lives in.
It's usually right next to the vanilla extract. You can find it at Walmart.
These are so adorable. :D
