Banana Sundae Cupcakes


Banana Sundae Cupcakes

I love making these cupcakes, not only do they taste amazing but they are super cute! The mini bananas are made from fondant icing but you could use the mini foam banana sweets if you can get some!

You could even make some cute peeled banana decorations, I have to give the credit to my boyfriend for thinking of this idea!

Once golden brown, remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow to cool. Make your buttercream while they are cooling (by mixing together Icing Sugar and Butter).

Buttercream icing

Spoon your Buttercream / Frosting over the cupcakes using a spoon. Use the back of the spoon to smooth the icing out, using circular movements to create a swirl.

Sprinkles and Marshmallows

Now for the fun part! Melt your chocolate and get the Vermacelli and Mini Marshmallows ready, along with the fondant bananas or foam bananas.

Banana Decoration

Place a banana and a few mini marshmallows on each cupcake.

Then drizzle a teaspoon of melted chocolate over the top, sprinkling over a few more marshmallows and vermicelli before it sets!

Peeled Banana Decoration

If you’re thinking of making these cute peeled banana decorations, then put the melted chocolate, marshmallows and vermicelli on the cupcake first, then the banana!
