Mary Poppins Chocolate Cupcake

These cupcakes are a practically perfect dessert for your Mary Poppins Returns Movie Night. Inspired by the delectable Mary Poppins chocolate cakes in Disneyland, I made them into easy to eat cupcakes. All you’ll need is a spoonful of sugar and all the ingredients below. To make it in a snap, you could substitute the cake recipe below with a boxed mix of chocolate cake.

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


For the Cake:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

½ cup cocoa powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 egg

½ cup milk

¼ cup vegetable oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ cup boiling water

For the ganache topping:

4 oz dark chocolate chip morsels

¼ cup heavy cream

For the Marshmallow filling:

1 cup marshmallow crème

½ cup powdered sugar


Marashino cherries, drained and dried

Daisy fondant pieces (I got mine from Hobby Lobby)


Directions for the Cake:

Preheat your over to 350 degrees. Prepare a cupcake pan with liners and set aside.

Add all dry ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer. On low speed, add in all the wet ingredients except for the boiling water. Once all of the wet ingredients are combined, add in the boiling water slowly! Slowly increase the speed to high and mix for about 2 minutes.

Fill each cupcake liner with batter, about 2/3 of the way. Bake for 15 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

After five minutes, remove from pan and place on a cooling rack to cool completely. Set aside while you make the filling.

To make the Ganache:

Melt chocolate morsels and cream in small saucepan on low heat. Stir constantly to prevent scorching. Remove from heat when all morsels have melted and combined with cream.

Filling Instructions:

Add marshmallow crème into the mixing bowl with a paddle attachment and mix until light and fluffy. Slowly add in the powdered sugar. Mix on high speed for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Place in icing bag with wide cut for easy use.

To complete the cupcakes:

Once the cupcakes have cooled, take an apple corer and take a small piece from the center of the cupcake. Fill the whole with the marshmallow creme mixture, and replace the top. You will have to cut of a bit of the bottom for it to fit back correctly.

After you fill the cupcake, turn it upside down and dip it into the ganache. Place cherry and daisy in center. Set aside to allow the ganache to harden.

Keep them in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  1. I have a lot of sentimental attachment to the first Mary Poppins movie and loved the second. I was in Disney World a few years ago and don’t actually remember Mary Poppins cakes. Anyway, your Mary Poppins cupcakes look really charming and sound like they would taste good too. 🙂
