The Cupcake:

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Easy Cream Cheese Frosting

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Line a standard 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, butter, eggs, and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and mix until incorporated.
  3. Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack and let cool before frosting.

The Frosting:

Ingredients

  • 1 8-ounce bar cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

Directions

  1. Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Add the sugar and beat until fluffy. If necessary, slightly chill the frosting to stiffen it before using. Use with Easy Yellow Cupcakes.

Finally, turn your cupcake into a FLUFFCAKE! Make sure you only put very little icing on the top because as the icing is not the sole topping for the cupcake, but rather is used as edible glue for your Fluffpop topping! It’s the perfect alternative to having icing on a cupcake since it adds the unique element of texture and color! We believe the perfect flavor(s) to pair with a yellow cupcake is our sparkling strawberry or butterscotch flavor!

Make sure you order either of these flavors to top any of your favorite desserts! Order ‘The Mini Mason’ Fluffpop for your next event at www.theminimason.com.
