Zoolander Movie Snacks!

So...what do you make to bring to a Zoolander movie night??

Or...if you're like me and you are worried an actual frappuccino would melt before you arrived you bring Orange Mocha Frappuccino CUPCAKES!! :)

Orange Mocha Frappuccino Cupcakes

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsps apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tsps pure vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup special dark baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Blend the sugar, coffee, oil, eggs, vinegar and vanilla until well mixed
Sift the flour, baking cocoa, baking soda and salt together in a small bowl
Add the flour mixture to the coffee mixture and stir until combined

Grease 12 muffin cups and fill each one 2/3rds of the way with batter
Bake at 350 degrees F for about 22 minutes

For the Frosting
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tbsps fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 1/2 tsps pure vanilla extract
Add all frosting ingredients to the mixer and beat on high speed until smooth and fluffy!

Once cupcakes are cool, pipe the frosting on top with a piping bag (or a plastic baggy with a corner snipped off) 

You can also embellish your cupcakes with printed Starbucks labels and straws if you want to get a little fancy :)
