Pink Princess Cupcakes #2- Frosty Ice Cream Sandwich

Frosty Ice Cream Sandwich
This is #2 of 28 different Princess design ideas that I am making from the Pink Princess Cupcake Book. To view the other Pink Princess Cupcakes from the book that I have made, click HERE!
 
This Pink Princess Cupcake idea is very simple to make.
Start with your favorite chocolate cupcakes, or the recipe from the book. This is a great time to use the cupcake liners that are leftover from other occasions, you know the ones! Once the cupcakes are fully cooled, peel off the wrappers and cut the cupcake in half like you would a burger bun. If the cupcake is too soft to do this you may want to put it in the freezer for about 10 minutes before cutting.
 
While the cupcake is cooling, prepare the ice cream circles: Carefully remove the ice cream from the carton in one. Slice the ice cream into about 1/2 inch slices and use a circle cookie cutter similar to the size of your cupcake to make the ice cream circles for the centers of your cupcakes. You can also just smash the ice cream into the cookie cutter, that works well too! Depending on the weather and how temperamental your ice cream is, you will probably need to put your ice cream circles back in the freezer to firm them up again for 1-2 hours.
I found this sprinkle set at Party City to help me along my Princess adventure!
 To assemble the cupcakes, place one ice cream circle in between your cupcake "bun" and roll the side in pink jimmies, sprinkles, or whatever else looks fun and princess-like! Insert through the top a plastic wand, cute princess pick, or nothing at all. My wands did turn out to be too long, but I didn't want to cut them since my princess would be playing with them later. Ideally the star on the wand would only be about 1/2 to 3/4 inch above the cake. These cupcakes could be personalized for a boy as well using different picks, a toy sword, or just different colored sprinkles.
