(Well, what that ended up looking like.)
Luckily, they didn't end up looking like that at all! You put melted ice cream into your cake mix and mix it all up. It was really thick batter, but they came out nice and dense. It would make a great layer cake. Can you imagine the possibilities?? I can't wait to try more out!! Here they are:
They came out with a lot more of the green color of the ice cream, but not so much in the picture. And apparently someone ate all the chocolate chips from this one... So they were definitely not the mint julep cupcakes we set out to make, but that just means we have another one to try another week.
