Kentucky Derby Cupcakes

Pin It Kentucky Derby Cupcakes

Happy Kentucky Derby Day! I made 2 dozen cupcakes to celebrate this grand event. Too bad it is gloomy in Kentucky Derby land but that won't damper the excitement of the day. Which horse is your favorite? I don't have one in mind but I do enjoy watching it. I hope the weather improves out there.

For this recipe, I used Pillsbury Moist Supreme Devil's Food Premium Cake Mix, and 1 container each of Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy Dark Chocolate and Duncan Hines Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting. If you have more time you can use your favorite cake and frosting recipe. When time is short this is a great alternative that tastes great. For other Kentucky Derby recipes, check out my Kentucky Butter Cake Cookies; Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pie and Kentucky Butter Cake.

Kentucky Derby Cupcakes; love the candy decorations
I found some cute edible decorations online of a cowboy hat, horse head, horse shoe and also some cupcake picks with a horse head and horse shoe design. These were fun to put together. I let the frosted cupcakes set overnight in the fridge in a cupcake container. This morning I added the decorations gently pressing down on the frosting.

Love the designs

I had 2 cupcakes for breakfast and the devils' food cake is moist and very rich from the dark chocolate frosting. The tang from the whipped cream cheese frosting balances the sweetness of the cupcake.
