Banana Split Cupcake Kabobs

What better way to have a traditional a banana split, than by serving the dessert with a fun, melt-free twist... introducing the banana split on a stick, aka Banana Split Cupcake Kabobs!

Banana Split Cupcake Kabobs

  • Mini Banana or vanilla Cupcakes, baked without cupcake cupcake liner)
  • Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
  • Rainbow Sprinkles
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Banana Slices (optional)


Frost 1/3 of your cupcakes with chocolate frosting, 1/3 with vanilla frosting, and 1/3 with strawberry frosting (homemade or store bought). Top each cupcake with rainbow sprinkles.

Using a piping bag fitted with a small start tip, or a plastic sandwich bag with the corner snipped off, and pipe a small swirl of vanilla frosting on top of each cupcake.

Drain and dry maraschino cherries with a paper towel.

Skewer your strawberry frosted cupcake down a wooden skewer, leaving about one to two inches of the stick at the bottom. I got a pack of 100 skewers for .99 cents at my local grocery store.

Next, skewer a cherry down the stick, on top of your cupcake. Make sure your cherries are dried thoroughly so the juice does not leak onto the white frosting.

Next skewer your vanilla frosted cupcake gently down the stick, followed by another cherry.

Repeat this process with your chocolate cupcake. You can add a banana slice to the top and bottom of your kabob if desired, just before serving to avoid browning.
