Oh me. Oh my. It’s a blissful sugar high when you bite into these round (yep, I said round) Pokémon Cupcakes. Encased in a crunchy candy shell, this pokéball is layered and filled with a dark chocolate cake surrounded with a buttercream icing.

It’s a ‘cram ya face’ guarantee to be a Pokémon GO! for your next Pokémon Party and with this tutorial I’ll show you how simple it is to make these pokéballs.

Yours truly has a Pokémon obsessed grandson with a group of buddies who are fixated around the status of evolving the thousands of little creatures that pop-up on the phone to be caught and eventually hatch to grow into more powerful beasts.

And It’s difficult to impress Pokémon enthusiasts but with these Pokémon Cupcakes, I am proud to proclaim that I’ve evolved my Pokémon status to….Mega GlamMa.

And here’s where to find the supplies for the Pokémon Cupcakes: Silicone Mold, Cookie Cutters, Plunger Cutters & the RV hand grater.

The Small Batch Chocolate Cupcake recipe is perfect for these Pokémon Cupcakes and buttercream topped cupcakes too. This recipe was created by me for smaller parties & celebrations.

And when using King Arthur’s Measure-for-Measure flour the cupcakes are equally as decadent to make Gluten-Free. I love to make a batch of gluten-free for the guests who are so gracious to celebrate the occasion, yet the majority of the time can’t enjoy party sweets.

The recommended cocoa for the recipe is King Arthur’s Black Cocoa. I’m in love! It makes the BEST chocolate desserts that require cocoa…EVER! You’ll be in love, too.

I’m also in love with Lauren Kitchen’s Buttercream recipe and if there is any icing (we lick the bowl for proof checkout Instagram) that’s leftover…freeze. Just use Google. Trust me, cakers abound are on the LK Buttercream train.

For an excellent resource on modeling chocolate and candy clay swing by Kara’s Couture Cakes.

Pokémon Chocolate Cupcake Recipe Yum
Gluten or Gluten-free, this rich, dark chocolate batter for these small batch of cupcakes makes life a little bit sweeter. To make these cupcakes Gluten-Free, use King Arthur's Measure for Measure flour. (No other gluten-free flour has been tested.) If using the recommended flour the only slight difference will be with the doming of the cupcakes. ~Recipe by: BB Bakes Sugar Art
