Entenmann's Cupcakes and Frosting

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
When I was pregnant with my second child in 1986, I followed an Entenmann's delivery truck at 6AM because I had a craving for their Hallween cupcakes. (Entenmann's is a east coast baking company that supplies boxed baked goods to supermarkets.) The cupcakes are yellow cake with fudge frosting, with a ring of orange buttercream, and candy corn sprinkled on top.The fudge frosting on those cupcakes is thick and rich and gooey, and I love it. For many years, I've been trying to find a recipe for a fudge frosting that resembles Enenmann's, with no luck. I have tried numerous so-called "fudge" frosting recipes, but they don't even come close. Does anyone have an "Entenmann's" fudge frosting recipe?

ohhh that sounds good about now... even after culinary school, and being a scratch baker, I can NEVER turn down a piece of entenmann's marshmallow iced devil's food cake!

<---wonders if anyone uses REAL ingredients anymore--sugar fruit nuts, cream, butter etc--instead of flavoring chemical cream from a bucket with pudding & jello and calling it "mousse"

You're a Jersey girl! You KNOW Entenmann's!!!! Their cream-filled chocolate chip cake is another favorite of mine. I grew up in a house with a scratch-baker Mom, so store-bought cakes and cookies were a treat! How pathetic is that? But I'm still looking for that fudge frosting recipe.

I love Entenmann's too and I grew up in IN and it was a big deal when I was 10 they came out our way.
Remember the Seinfeld episode where Elaine switched the cake that Peterman had won at auction that was supposed to be the Duke & Duchess of Windsor? The guy who was the "cake expert" said it was an Entenmann's.

I did'nt know Entenmanns made anything other than coffee cake!!! I've been deprived!
We have it here in tx and but I've only ever seen their coffee cakes and struedals.

I have'nt tasted their frosting but Martha Stewart has a fudge frosting thats really good, its basically whipped ganache but it tastes just like homemade fudge. I'll try to find it , my books are packed away but its worth digging around for.

Fellow Entenmann's Lovers!!! So happy to meet you all! I didn't realize their products were sold as far west as Texas! I'm sorry you Texans only get the coffee cake!
Chasebrad, thanks for the recipe. I hope to give it a try soon.
Gingodies, I WISH I had one of those cakes now.
I just got home from a wedding that served an inadequate wedding cake. It was lovely to look at, but had my least favorite flavor.....rum. I was so disappointed. To me, rum flavoring ruins the cake. So now I really wish I had an Entenmann's box in my kitchen!

Update: I'm on my second box of Halloween cupcakes. I am pitiful. These cupcakes are only sold in October, so I must eat them when I can! Most of Entenmann's other holiday cupcakes are not as good.

Does anyone remember the Entenmann's cupcakes that were like the Hostess Squiggle Cupcakes (but without the squiggle)? They were chocolate cake, with cream filling and thick, fudgy frosting, and not holiday cupcakes. They were discontinued some years ago, but I still harrass the Entenmann's delivery guys about them.

OMGosh! Entenmann's mini chocolate chip cookies and chocolate covered donuts! I didn't realize I missed them until I saw this post! I'm originally from Massachusetts but now live in Colorado. We do get Entenmann's coffee cakes but not the full line. I used to use their pound cake to make my strawberries and cream trifle but now I have to make my own since no other store bought comes close!
