    The Caramel Cracker Jack cupcake has my name on it too. Can’t wait to make it.

  2. Just a few quick questions. I’d like to make the Guinness cupcakes for an upcoming party. The cupcakes are listed as chocolate in the title, but there’s no chocolate ingredient listed – how much is needed? Also, how long and at what temperature did you put these in for? I don’t make cupcakes often enough to know. Sounds fantastic, though, and it’s breaking my husband’s heart to know we have to pick up his favorite beer to make these. : ) Thanks!

    1. Chelsie- Yes, there is chocolate in this Guinness recipe. Full ingredients and instructions bellow:

      Ingredients:
      1 cup Guinness Stout
      10 tablespoon unsalted butter
      2/3 cup sour cream
      3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
      2 large eggs
      1 teaspoon almond extract
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      2 cups all purpose flour
      2 cups granulated sugar
      2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

      Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
      Sift dry ingredients (flour and baking soda). Set aside.
      Combine sour cream, eggs, and extract. Set aside.
      Combine Guinness and butter in a medium sauce pan. Heat until butter is melted. Over medium heat, whisk in the cocoa and sugar until combined. Remove pan from heat. Mix in the sour cream mixture into the butter/cocoa/sugar. Whisk in the dry ingredients until smooth. Scoop batter into cupcakes liners and bake until centers are done (about 17-20 minutes).

      Enjoy!!

  3. for the cracker jack frosting, do you just mix all of the ingredients at once? Or is there a sequence?

  4. Amelia Darby says:

    These recipes look amazing!! I am making the ice cream sundae ones for my husbands birthday. I realized there is no instructions on how to make them, just the materials needed. Is there a place that I can find more details?
    Thanks

  5. Yes, I’m with Amy S… I’d like a little more guidance for the caramel buttercream… Would hate to waste all of those ingredients on a ruined batch of frosting! Thanks!

  6. Hi Jessie, thats a really levloy card, love the papers and your image is so cute, not seen a snowman angel before, but I suppose theres always a first time. With love and hugs Shirleyxxx

  7. Do you happen to still have links to the recipes for the cotton candy and Cracker Jack cupcakes?

  8. its sounds like the flour and powdered sugar should be sifted after measuring. is this true, or should i sift before?

  9. Where can I find the complete recipes for the Cracker Jack and berry cotton candy cupcakes!!!
