You've been tasked with creating a "cupcake pie". What do you envision it would be?

i would start with a base of cupcake bottoms. next would be ice cream (pick your flavor) followed by some sort of topping - nuts, candy bar, fruit (if you're lame). Next would be the cupcake tops, lightly frosted, with sparklers.

I would totes steal Beenu's Car Bomb Cupcake recipe, trademark it as my own, and then expand it to a pie-size with a delicious butter-cream frosting and green sprinkles to support the Irish in their quest for independence from the Irish.

P.S. my word verification for this post is "porks." Janice would love that.

wouldn't that just be a cake with a crust?

That sounds like some sort of sexual request...and I can't envision what it would be

i have been thinking about this a lot since leslie first posted the idea of a cupcake pie in her chattus. and i've come up with a few options.

1. using pie crust to line the cupcake tin instead of cupcake papers.

2. making a pie sized cupcake with the aforementioned pie crust idea.

3. a thin layer of cake substituting for the pie crust, then some kind of pie filling your choice, then a top layer of cake and then frosting. sprinkles optional.

4. a cupcake sized pie with cupcake frosting so you wouldn't know it was a pie instead of a cupcake until you removed the wrapper.

i hope the curbside cupcake van comes by today...

a pie made out of cupcakes, duh

I have made these. Cup-pies to be technical. I lined cupcake tins with pie crusts, blind baked them, filled with my filling (I think I did sour cream blueberry) and baked.

Cute.

A pie-shaped cupcake would probably be good in ratio of cake to frosting -- bake a cake in a pie tin and make it mound up in the center (I think you can do that with oven temperature) and then frost & sprinkle.

Ive been watching "Cupcake Wars" on the Food Network (yes, I know, pathetic). But I would make a s'mores cupcake pie! it would have a graham cracker crust, chocolate cake, and a marshmallow fluff-like topping that I would torch and make look like a toasted marshmallow.
Damn, now my raisin bran sounds unawesome.
