Pinterest is killing me.

Cupcake Fondue I

Really it is. My demise has began.


It’s making me sit on my rear for hours at a time and skip workouts and go to bed at a highly unreasonable hour and make things like this cupcake fondue. All signs point to a heart attack if you ask me.

Why didn’t someone warn me just how addicting it was is? Why doesn’t my home look like any of the ones I pin? Why does it make me want to stand in front of the stove all day like it’s 1955? Why haven’t I ever made cupcake fondue in my incredibly deprived life?


And more importantly, why didn’t anyone tell me that wasabi peas were so… wasabic? My tongue hurts.

[As a side note, how cute are my little cupcakes’ brightly colored unmentionables way up there? Heather sent me those a while back. I love cupcake liner lingerie.]

Remember when I gave you a sneak peek of these pictures on Facebook yesterday and you all thought I made brownie pops? Tricked you, didn’t I?

You should be glad.

This is soooo much more exciting.

Funner. Prettier. Fancier. Sparklier.

So awesome that I make up words to describe them.

Not only are they super fun, but they are 100% customizable. Unless you want to make some sort of vegetable cupcakes and dip them in some sort of something not sweet at all. Not allowed. That is unacceptable.

Cupcake Fondue

idea from pintsizesocial via bakeitpretty


for the mini cupcakes: Easiest would most likey be a boxed mix of your choice, but I used this white cake recipe.

for the “fondue:” You can use either melted white chocolate, vanilla cream glaze, or any other frosting of your choice of course. I think it would be great to have multiple fondues (chocolate, vanilla frostings) but I’m not sure how realistic it is – it wasn’t for me!

toppings: various sprinkles, shredded coconut, mini chocolate chips, crushed cookies, etc.

This is really so simple. All you need to do is prepare your frosting or melted chocolate of choice (if it is a glaze/melted chocolate, I suggest keeping the heat on under the fondue pot. If it is frosting such as buttercream (which is possible but would be challenging for “dipping.”) keep the heat off under the fondue pot. Assemble small bowls with your toppings of choice. Bake your cupcake flavor of choice in mini liners and serve!

Now here’s a serious question: I bet you didn’t think I liked sprinkles this much, did you?

    I think I’ve realized what I’m going to eat for my 18th birthday/graduation celebration. The adorable sweetness of cupcakes with the communal awesomeness of fondue? Perfection!

    Perfect timing. I was invited to a cook out yesterday (4/30/11). I had been requested to bring cupcakes. Since the cook out was for children, I thought this cupcake fondue would be perfect. I brought several types of regular cupcakes but, the fondue was a big hit. One adult demonstrated the “how to” to make their own little creation, the children could not wait to take their turn. It was so much fun. Thank you for sharing this post. Everybody
    should try this, is was great.

    This is perfect for my next dinner party! What a great idea! Do you ever have trouble losing the cupcake in the glaze fondue? I feel like thats the first thing that would happen to me. haha.

    I love this idea. I think I know what we are going to do for our next Spring Tea Party with our kids. This looks like so much fun and your pictures are fantastic. Now if I can just get my cupcakes to look like yours when they come out of the oven.
