You may have seen a video on TikTok showing a person cutting a cupcake in half and putting the bottom half on icing. While this seems impossible, it’s actually quite easy! Just slice the vanilla cupcake in half, and place the bottom half on top of the icing like a sandwich. This results in a mini icing-filled dessert that’s both delicious and healthy. The video has been viewed more than 550,000 times and has received positive reviews.
TikTok cupcakes are a trend
If you’ve been following the TikTok trend, you’ve probably seen a video or two related to TikTok cupcakes. The app allows users to make short videos and share them with the world. The cupcake trend has become so popular, that hundreds of thousands of videos have been tagged with the hashtag. Many of the videos relate to fellow users, and some are even comparing hairstyles of celebrities such as actor Chris Evan. A popular hashtag, #likeyouhaveacupcake, has received over 3.5 million views. The popularity of the hashtag is largely down to the fact that it compares the likes and dislikes of each user with the childhood favorite.
They are a cupcake sandwich
A video of a cupcake sandwich on TikTok went viral in 2021, and the idea caught on with food bloggers in Australia. The idea was then shared on Reddit, where comments from foodies flooded the post. The secret to these cupcake sandwiches is that you get both the cake and icing in every bite.
The idea of putting two different flavors into one cupcake makes the dessert taste more delicious, and the frosting sandwich keeps kids clean. This cupcake is a clever idea, but we wouldn’t recommend putting Oreos and Mac and Cheese in it. Instead, use carrots, blueberries, or pineapple in a creative way.
They are topped with thick icing
While you might think tiktok cupcakes are just plain vanilla cupcakes topped with thick icing, they are actually a unique kind of cupcake that is made with a unique method. In this recipe, the bottom half of a vanilla cupcake is cut in half and placed on top of the icing. Once cut in half, the mini dessert is then cut into two pieces. The resulting creation looks like a mini icing sandwich.
