Beautifully piped Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Frosting on homemade Chocolate Cupcakes. Add the broken waffle cone to look like ice cream, but it tastes like a delicious creamy buttercream frosting!

INGREDIENTS:

1 BATCH CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES (2 DOZEN)

FOR THE VANILLA FROSTING:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 Tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla

FOR THE CHOCOLATE FROSTING:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 Tbsp chocolate syrup
  • 4 waffle cone bowls, broken in pieces

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Prepare cupcakes according to recipe (or box mix). Cool completely.
  2. For the vanilla frosting, beat butter in an electric mixer for 3-5 minutes, until fluffy and pale in color. Add in powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Beat an additional 3-5 minutes until frosting is fluffy, and desired consistency. Set aside.
  3. For the chocolate frosting, beat butter in an electric for 3-5 minutes until fluffy and pale in color. Add in powdered sugar, milk, cocoa powder, and chocolate syrup. Beat an additional 3-5 minutes until frosting is fluffy, and desired consistency. Set aside.
  4. Spoon each frosting into a separate piping bag (no tip). Snip off the tips of the bags. Add both bags to a large decorator bagwith a Wilton 1M tip attached.
  5. Using a constant pressure, pipe on the outside edge of the cupcake with the piping bag held straight up. Squeeze and begin the swirl around the outside edge of the cupcake.
  6. Continue squeezing while you create another layer of frosting as you spiral towards the center. Add your piece of waffle cone to the top and repeat with the remaining cupcakes.
  7. Store cupcakes in airtight container for up to 3 days. ENJOY!
**frosting recipe makes enough frosting to pipe large swirls of frosting onto cupcakes. If you don’t like as much frosting as pictured, cut recipe in half!
