After the success of my last flaming cupcakes (also from Sprinke bakes ) I had to try these.
FIRST THINGS FIRST
The cupcakes are the easy part. Although there is a recipe at Sprinkle Bakes, just about any chocolate cupcake recipe that you have should do the trick. I wouldn’t waste too much time here at all. The real fun is the flaming strawberries. However, I did use their recipe for the frosting. It’s a butter, sugar cocoa powder mix (the detailed recipe is below) that we have almost all seen before but for some reason this frosting turned out better then I’ve made in the past.
Now for the fun part. I suggest right off the bat to use Bacardi 151 The recipe says anything 80 proof or higher but I tried a few and the Bacardi by far was the easiest to light.
NOW FUN PART
You have to get the biggest strawberries you can find. I always see these huge overpriced Organic strawberries at ShopRite . The ones’ that I always say are for the rich families. Those. Use Those.
You actually have to hollow out the strawberry. I happen to have this set of small condiment spoons, which I never, ever use for anything, that were absolutely prefect for this. Thank God I didn’t re-gift them. Once you get a nice looking hollow cherry, stick it in the frosting and make sure it’s level and secure. Sit it there and bang on the table a few times to make sure it doesn’t move. Any strawberries that tear, eat them and start fro scratch.
Once you have your little Strawberry cups you can now pour in the bicardi and light it. Viola. It looks so good that you will impress yourself.
