Banana Split Cupcakes

Have you seen this recipe on Pinterest?  I thought it would be the perfect treat for guests at Ephraim's party.  Not everyone prefers fondant Angry Birds...

I went ahead and just made this recipe for the party without testing it, and it turned out beautifully!  The cupcake uses a banana cake recipe, filled with sweetened strawberries and crushed pineapple.  I used whipped cream for the frosting then put them in the fridge for about an hour.  After I made the ganache, I let it cool for about ten minutes, then carefully drizzled it on top of the whipped cream.  I sprinkled on the jimmies and added the cherry!  (a note about the cherries-make sure you open the jar and lay the cherries out to dry a bit on a paper towel.  If you don't, the cherries will bleed red cherry juice all over your frosting.)

Have you found any good recipes on Pinterest lately?


  1. Watch out cupcake wars!!! Those look terrific!!!

  2. Oh wow. Lovely cupcakes. I have found a few keeper recipes on pinterest and a few that I've deleted b/c they were that bad.
