While I made this tokidoki unicorn cake that I made for my daughter's 5th birthday party, I still had to make cupcake for her class party at school! And after seeing these neapolitan cupcakes from Cooking Classy, I couldn't get them out of my head! So I of course had to make them for my Melodie!
Two different batters were made for the cupcake - for the bottom a moist chocolate cupcake, and for the top a fluffy vanilla cupcake.
During baking, the chocolate batter must have bubbled up to the top to make little spots in the vanilla batter, an unintentional effect which I actually thought was really cute because it reminded me of leopard spots!
I used this Wilton star tip to pipe on the frosting in a cute and swirly design.
Cut in half, you can see how the chocolate batter must have bubbled up into the white batter. But no matter, I still thought they were adorable.
And the taste? They overwhelmingly reminded me of neapolitan ice cream sandwiches, especially because of the strawberry whipped cream!
Happy birthday my little Melodie! Hope you enjoyed your birthday cupcakes!
