Alma says: 'I chose acid oranges, to recreate the acid-sweet taste of lollipop'


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

  4. Fill the cupcake cups (up to 3/4) with the batter.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean).
  6. Remove from oven. Once the cupcakes have cooled, decorate with icing and mini Chupachups.

To make the buttercream:

  1. Place all the ingredients in the bowl of your mixer. Mix all ingredients for 4 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  2. Spread buttercream over cupcakes and decorate with lollipops.
