Neapolitan Cupcakes

Do you remember neapolitan ice cream?

That seemed like the standard served at parties when I was a kid because it had the three basic flavors to serve to all the kids.

Chocolate ~ that would be my choice
Vanilla ~ I tend toward this more now
Strawberry ~ sweet and delicious

As I was baking for this weekend I found that I had some remaining batter that needed to be used so I tried something new.
Vanilla almond sour cream was the base and then a dollop of triple chocolate right in the middle. I also had some strawberry filling left over so once the cupcakes were cooled I filled the cupcakes with strawberry filling!

But that wasn't enough ~ I had all 3 flavors in buttercream icing so I thought I would replicate the neapolitan profile on TOP!
Chocolate ~ Vanilla ~ Strawberry

Isn't it cute in it's little cup?

Carefully unwrap your you can savor this dessert.
I have a set of these dessert plates that we use on birthdays here at the house ~cute huh!?!

Finally I thought I would show you the cut through!

I guess the only thing missing is the ICE CREAM!
