  • 1 box 200g Maya Party Cupcake Mix
  • 2 tsp. Ube extract
  • 2 tbsp. Canola or vegtable Oil
  • 1/2 cup Water or Milk
  • 1 med Egg at room temperature


  • 1/2 box 100g Frosty Whip Cream Powder
  • 1 tsp Ube extract
  • 1/3 cup Icy Cold Water


  • 2 tbsp. white sprinkles

You also Need:

  • 15 pcs cupcake liners 2oz.
  • 15 pcs. cupcake toppers optional


  • Preheat Stove-Top heavy-bottom Casserole or any similar cooking ware over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  • If using a heavy bottom casserole, put just enough salt to cover the entire bottom to avoid browning the pan and helps stabilize the heat evenly.
  • Place fitted wire rack in the center and cover with a lid. The lid hole should be sealed with a foil so the heat can’t escape.
  • Line muffin tins or silicon molds with same size cupcake liners.
  • Mix all ingredients until smooth, at least 25 strokes or less, do not over mix according to package direction.
  • Fill each tins/molds up to 2/3’s full or divide the batter into 15 cupcake liners.
  • Cook the cupcake in a preheated casserole for about 7-8 minutes.
  • Keep an eye of your cupcakes because we may have different kinds of stove and the heat varies.
  • To check, insert wooden stick in the center and if comes out clean or a few moist crumbs, its done.
  • Repeat process for the second batch. Fire off and let it cool completely on a wire rack, before frosting.

Lets prepare our frosting:

  • I’m using 100g of Frosty Whip Cream Powder that would be ¾cups FWCP and to that we are going to add about 1/3 cup of super cold water.
  • Moistened the cream powder first before whipping. When it’s fully whipped and aerated, you can add ube extract and violet food color and mix until well combined.
  • Transfer in a piping bag with your favorite nozzle tip and we are ready to frost.
  • Let’s frost our cupcake, just pipe a good amount of frosting on top of each ube cupcake.
  • (Press, Swirl and Release) Top with sprinkles of your choice and a cupcake topper.
