Squashies Cupcakes – The Baking Duck

Squashies Cupcakes

Cupcakes = yum. Drumsticks – yum. Drumstick Squashies = yum. I love drumsticks they are so good, and they have this chewiness that makes your teeth stick together. New to the drumstick family is squashies

I’m not sure how to describe them if you haven’t had them before. They are like marshmallows that taste like drumsticks but require slightly less chewing and they don’t stick to your teeth.

These come in the normal drumstick flavour of milk and raspberry and you can also get them in the sour flavour of drumsticks which is cherry and apple flavour.

These can be brought at most supermarkets; I got both bags of mine from Aldi. I originally brought my bags for cupcakes for my boyfriends’ birthday back in January but due to being very busy and not having time to make them, he never got his cupcakes.

These cupcakes are just plain vanilla flavour topped off with a drumstick squashie. Sometimes simple cupcakes are always a good way to go but topped with something a little extra.

I used both the normal and sour drumstick squashies as I wanted a mixture of both flavours. I did six cupcakes with the milk and raspberry squashies and the other six with the cherry and apple sour squashies.

I am always one for simplicity when it comes to my cupcakes because I think something so prefect does not need to be over the top.

A simple rose was piped on to each of my cupcakes and ended each rose with a sweet. These cupcakes went down a treat at work and didn’t last long.
