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?
