Fruity Pebbles aka The Troy

I wanted to do a cereal cupcake but couldn't decide which cereal to use. My brother, Troy, is obsessed with cereal so I thought he would be a good person to pick. Troy picked Fruity Pebbles. I haven't had Fruity Pebbles in a long time- I forgot how good they are! I used my basic vanilla cupcake batter and mixed the cereal with it and baked. The fruity pebbles actually float when they bake so when you bite into the cupcake there is a nice crunch. Then I used my classic vanilla buttercream frosting and garnished with the pebbles. All in all- it's a delicious fruity sweet cupcake that takes me back to my childhood. I named this "The Troy" because he is one of the few adults who is still a child at heart. Troy and I are 2 years apart and we were always close growing up. We shared friends and he drove me to school every day the first 2 years of high school. We lived across the courtyard from each other in our apartment complex in college and he is the only reason I passed accounting in college. Troy- you might not be able to taste your cupcake for a while (being in London and all) but I know others will enjoy them! Introducing "The Troy"! Love you bro!
