Today we have a nice idea to surprise a friend, girlfriend or mom for Women’s Day! 😀 Why should you buy flowers, when you can prepare yourself a dessert that remembers mimosas? So here’ve got the mimosa cupcakes, flavored with vanilla and orange blossom 😀 .
The Mimosa cake traditionally requires a custard filling… But to make it easier, we decided to omit the custard and replace it with a frosting. In short, you have no more excuses, you’ll prepare these cupcakes with orange blossom, in less time than you would need to go and buy the mimosas, and they’ll be much tastier! 😀
If you try one of the recipes on the blog, take a photo and publish it on Instragam with the hashtag #fratelliaifornelli and tagging our profile @fratelliaifornelli.
- 120 g of soft butter
- 100 g of sugar
- 120 g of flour
- 2 eggs
- 60 ml of orange blossom water
- 1/2 vanilla bean
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
For the frosting
- 250 g of Philadelphia cheese
- 70 g of softened butter
- 80 g of powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons of orange blossom water
Mix the butter at room temperature with the sugar until the mixture is smooth.
Add the sifted flour, baking powder, salt, orange blossom water, vanilla and eggs.
Pour the mixture into 12 muffin molds and bake at 180 °C for 20-25 minutes.
For the frosting
Whip the philadelphia with softned butter, icing sugar and orange blossom water.
Let the frosting rest 10 minutes in the refrigerator, then fill a piping bag.
Once the cupcakes have cooled, pick one or two, perhaps the ugliest ones and cut them into regular cubes with a knife. These cupcakes are very soft, to cut them more easily you should place the condemned ones in the freeze for 10 minutes before cutting them.
Decorate the remaining cupcakes with piping bag, making small spikes of frosting all over their top, then attache the small cubes onto the frosting. Repeat until you've decorated all the mimosa cupcakes.
