Mashed Potato Cupcake Recipe

Mashed Potato Cupcakes. The newest trend in cupcakes is here!

Last night I decided to put my old piping bag to healthier uses.  I used to love decorating cakes…but my kids wouldn’t eat them.  In fact one birthday I was prepared to make an awesome cake (since I had just finished the Wilton beginners class), when my son announced he didn’t want cake for his birthday. Instead he asked for these:

But onto why you are really here, and it’s not Twinkies!

This simple presentation of mashed potatoes was a big hit!

All we did was make mashed potatoes.  I use 1 potato per person eating (so I boiled 5 chopped potatoes)

And piped them into my favorite silicone muffin cups (other uses for the muffin cups):

As I was falling asleep last night I was thinking… this would have been gorgeous with sweet potatoes!  Or to blend orange and white potatoes together!. or my husband thought I should have made them green for St. Patrick’s day!  Woulda, coulda, shoulda. Oh well!

WARNING: If you are to try this at home..  I actually had a super difficult time getting the mashed potatoes through the #20 Piping tip.  My mashed potatoes, although I blended them really really well, were still somewhat chunky.  And the potato chunks got stuck in the tip.  I ended up prying the prongs of my tip open just a little bit wider.  If you have a bigger tip, it would be wise.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY

Those are so cute!

Ooh, I’ve done this, but I baked individual meatloafs in the muffin tin, and then “frosted” with mashed potatoes. So super cute!

Mashed Potato Cupcakes! Yum. I think I would actually prefer them to regular cupcakes. 🙂

Rebecca says:

Sounds exciting and yummy!

[…] Mashed potatoes are a great way to prepare potatoes. They are considered a vegetable and most kids like them! […]
