Quick poll: Is baking nerds into a cake too extreme? Yes or yes?
Hey, Nerds! Did you know you can mix Nerds candy into your favorite cupcake batter to make an even better version of confetti cake? It’s true! Just mix up a basic vanilla batter (my recipe is here), and then stir in 3/4 cups Nerds candy. Fill your cupcake tins 3/4 of the way full and bake for about 23 minutes, until they’re golden brown and the cake springs back when you gently press your finger into the top of it. I finished mine off with vanilla buttercream and an extra sprinkle of the dangerously crunchy candy. CUTE!
