Everyone makes their Interactive Tasty piñata cupcake recipe differently. Choose from all 16 interactive recipes of this epic take on the piñata cupcake – which one will you discover?
All of our Interactive Tasty piñata cupcake recipes start with the batter – should you use cake mix or make your chocolate cupcakes from scratch? The choice is completely up to you but using cake mix can save you a lot of time, and it often turns out just as delicious.
As you’re filling the cupcake liners with the batter, make sure you keep them no more than 2/3 full. It’s easy to be tempted to fill them to the brim, but that will make your cupcakes mushroom out over the sides and turn out crispy and uneven, rather than light and fluffy.
The best way to add the piñata cupcake filling is after the cupcake is baked and has cooled down. Carefully cut a hole into the top of the cupcake, either using a cupcake corer or a knife, and then fill it with whichever sweet surprise you’re craving. Chocolate chips are delicious, but if you’re baking for a party it’s hard to beat sprinkles, with their blast of festive color.
From there, it’s time to show your artistic side with the toppings. Chocolate sauce, whipped cream, cherries, blueberries, sprinkles? Follow our recipes above for ideas, but feel free to experiment with your own personal touch. The best cupcake recipe is the one that you designed yourself.
