I hadn’t had pie in awhile, so I decided to change that. Apple pie sounded good, but peach pie sounded even better.

These caught my eye yesterday because they’re a little out of the ordinary for Jelly Belly. One of my favorite things to see on a fancy schmancy dessert are raspberries. Want something that looks like it was made by a French chef? Put a raspberry on it. These would be good to keep around in case timing for fresh berries on the spot can’t happen. Or if you just happen to like Jelly Belly candy.
It’s funny, I was trying to figure out the plural of “Jelly Belly,” and the Jelly Belly style guide says it’s against the rules! So instead of saying “Jelly Belly’s” or “Jelly Bellies,” I had to say “Jelly Belly Candy.” Well, I didn’t have to. But I thought I’d overshare with everyone.
I’ve seen this style of cupcake in dozens of different variations. Basically, any kind of cake will do. Then you usually ice the cupcake with white frosting to imitate ice cream. In this photo, it’s obviously imitating Neapolitan ice cream. You then drizzle the tops of your cupcakes with chocolate syrup or melted chocolate. You can also add chopped peanut toppings, chocolate chips, pieces of waffle cones or sprinkles. (Chopped nuts really give it that ice cream sundae feel.) I’ve also seen these topped with Reddi Wip instead of frosting (if you’re in a hurry and the cupcakes are being eaten soon).
And finally, you’re absolutely required to top it with a maraschino cherry.
