I was so excited to make these as soon as I had the idea for them! Again, I used a Betty Crocker boxed mix. This time I used regular white cake mix and the whipped icing. It was a nice crisp white (rather than the off-white of the regular vanilla frosting) and had a fluffy texture so it really looked like whipped cream, which was perfect for these cupcakes.
I baked and iced, and then decorated using sprinkles...

Marachino cherries (my fave. I could eat them all day long)...

And then a cut up a bunch of drinking straws into little 2 inch pieces and stuck them into the cupcakes! (I only used red ones).
Next time I want to find/find a way to make cupcake-sized waffle bowls so I can make little icecream sundae themed cupcakes!
Note: I had to use stock images for this post (besides the picture of the actual cupcake, which I took) because I got too wrapped in actually making them I forgot to take pictures of the process!
