If you are a lover of retro candy then you will just
love this recipe! This is because – as the name suggests – it features that
nostalgic, crackling treat that is popping candy.
Not the first
baking ingredient that might spring to mind perhaps, but if you try this recipe
you will see how well it can work with classic cupcakes. So, let’s take a quick
look at what you are going to need to create these tasty treats:

What you need
Cupcakes:
1 3/4
teaspoons baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/3 cup
vegetable oil
5
tablespoons butter
1 1/4
cups sugar
1 3/4
cups cake flour
2
extra-large whole eggs
3 large
egg yolks
2 1/2
teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup
buttermilk, shaken
Popping candy buttercream:
8
tablespoons unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
2 to 3
cups powdered sugar, well sifted
2
teaspoons vanilla extract
1 to 3
teaspoons cream, as needed
Popping
candy
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cupcake trays.
Sift the flour with the baking powder and salt and put to one side. Then mix
together butter and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy. After that you need to
beat in the eggs, followed by vanilla extract and vegetable oil. Fold in the
flour mixture with buttermilk. It’s now time to fill your cupcake liners three
quarters full before baking for 8-10 minutes.

To make the popping candy buttercream mix together the
butter and vanilla extract until smooth, before adding the sugar to taste. Then,
one teaspoon at a time, beat in the cream. Finally once your cupcakes are iced
sprinkle on the all important popping candy for the perfect finish – then
enjoy!
