After our success with our Strawberry Buttercream Frosting, we wanted to put it on everything.  Laurie had the brilliant idea of taking our Halloween Brownie Cupcakes and combining it with our Strawberry Buttercream Frosting and voila … Neapolitan Brownie Cupcakes.

How to make Neapolitan Brownie Cupcakes

You will need:

  • Brownie Mix – Small Box (for an 8″x8″ pan)
  • White Cake mix – Regular Box
  • Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
  • Cupcake Liners
  • Pastry Bag
  • Wilton 2D Decorating Tip

Brownie Batter for Neapolitan Brownie Cupcakes

First mix up a batch of brownies.  We used Ghiradelli Chocolate Supreme Brownie Mix.

Second, mix up a box of White Cake Mix.

Creating the Brownie Cupcakes

Add a spoonful of brownie mix to the cupcake liners.  The brownie batter should only go about 1/3 of the way up the cupcake liner.  You want more cake batter than brownie batter for these cupcakes. Then cover the brownie batter with the white cake batter.  Bake the cupcakes as you normally would, 16-18 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  You can make approximately 22-24 Brownie cupcakes.

The Brownie Cupcakes will look like this when they come out of the oven. If you want people to see the brownie/cake layers – use a light colored cupcake liner. We used white cupcake liners for our Neapolitan Brownie Cupcakes.

Strawberry Buttercream Frosting - super yummy and so very easy to make.

Make a batch of our Strawberry Buttercream Frosting to top your Neapolitan Brownie Cupcakes.  It is easy to make and so delicious.  You will find the recipe and detailed instructions on how to make it here.  We used a pastry bag and a Wilton 2D Decorating Tip to swirl on the frosting.
