{Mix + Match} Neapolitan Cupcakes

Here's a fun idea, inspired by the classic combo of vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate ice cream: neapolitan cupcakes.

I made these for a girls' weekend that took place over the summer, and they were a perfect, pretty, and playful way to add a feminine touch to the occasion. Using a couple of different cake and frosting flavors was an easy way to provide some variety in dessert choices.

For this particular batch of cupcakes, I used box mix and made homemade frosting. I'm a big fan of box mixes for the base because they are nearly impossible to get wrong! Here are some simple recipes for your own mix and match cupcakes:

Although I loved the neapolitan combo, the options here are really endless (think banana + vanilla + peanut butter + chocolate; chocolate + raspberry + orange; or vanilla + oreo + chocolate chip). Just pick a couple of easy base flavors and some fun frostings, and you're on your way!
