Cupcake Sundae




Introduction: Cupcake Sundae

About: I'm a Designer, Creator, Inventor. #1 Hobby - brainstorming. I invented the Unicorn Poop cookie, as published here on instructables. And now I am a metalsmith. <3
I am not a big cake or cupcake fan, but I love sundaes, so I thought of upgrading and finding out what the taste would be like!  It was pretty good, and my husband gave me the funniest review!  He was eating his and I was walking by, he looked up really quick and said "this is REALLY good"  as if he were trying to convince me of something.  Not the usual "hey, pretty good".  So my response was just to laugh, because it was so innocent, how it came out.  

As long as you like cupcakes, ice cream, bananas, chocolate and will liiiike this! :D

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: What You Need!

Cupcake mix, or cake mix
Food coloring
Long spoons to serve them with
These cool sundae glasses (thrift store, $1 each.)
Ice Cream
Hot Fudge topping
Banana or more
Red edible glitter
(Your choice toppings)

Step 2: Baking Your Sundae.

Mix your cupcake batter of choice, color if desired.

Layer your batter in a very thick glass (traditional sundae cup/glass), and only fill about half-way, for the batter to rise in the oven.  I wouldn't grease or PAM the glasses because you won't get the pretty display of color, once it's been baked.  When you bake in glasses like this, and they are slicked inside, the cake will separate from the glass and make it look strange.  

So, your layers are looking good, your oven is preheated to 325 degrees, all that you have to do now, is put the glasses on a pan and leave them in the oven for 18 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Put the glasses on a wire cooling rack, away from heat and then into the fridge to chill.

Step 3: Toppings!

You can top these Sundae Cupcakes however you wish, but here is how I did it!

I cut up a banana, which worked for both Sundaes, put them around the top, inner edge of the chilled glass, very fancy!  Then I took a scoop of vanilla ice cream and used my finger to make it look more smooth and round.  I made a finger dent in the top, for the cherry to sit pretty.  Before the cherry, drizzle with chocolate (heated in microwave, glass jar).  Then I used red edible glitter over the chocolate and the cherry on top.  It was very pretty to look at, tasted good and it was fun to make.

I suggest these if you are having a date night in, or you want to have a fancy desert for guests, or even for someone's birthday.  Just go to thrift stores and collect the glasses.  Mine were $1 each.  :D
