Dirt And Worms Cupcakes


Cupcake Ingredients - 1 box of chocolate cake mix (measurements for the eggs, oil and water will change based on which brand of cake mix you purchase) * 3 eggs * 1/2 cup oil * 1 cup water

Frosting Ingredients - 1 cup unsalted sweet cream butter, softened * 2 1/2 cup powdered sugar * 1 tsp vanilla * 3-5 tbsp heavy whipping cream * 1/4 cup cocoa powder * ground oreo cookie crumbs * mini sour gummy worms


Cupcake Instructions - Preheat oven to 350 f. Place the cupcake liners into the cavities in the cupcake pan. Place the cake mix, eggs, oil, extract and water in a medium bowl and mix until combined. Use a medium ice cream scoop to place the batter into the cupcake liners, filling each about 3/4 of the way full. Place the cupcakes in the oven and bake for about 21 minutes. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and place aside to cool.

Decorating Instructions - Place the butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla and heavy whipping cream into either a standing mixer or a large mixing bowl. Mix on medium speed until stiff peaks form. If the frosting is soft, add 1/4-1/2 cups powdered sugar until the frosting is thick. Scoop the frosting into a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Frost the cupcakes and sprinkle the oreo cookie crumbs onto the icing. Place the worms randomly into the icing.
