Baking date: March 3, 2018
My good friend Rebecca was having a birthday party at Hot Fired Arts for her daughter Sami. We’ve been friends for close to a decade and even though I don’t have a daughter, Rebecca asked if I would join the party and bring cupcakes for the birthday girl.
Using the invite theme of a heart and multi-colors, I decided to use a rainbow of sugar sprinkles to decorate the requested chocolate cupcakes. The recipe for the cupcakes was one bowl chocolate cake. I used a canned white frosting.
The colors of sugar sprinkles I used were pink, yellow, royal blue, orange, purple, gold, pastel green and pastel pink (from Betty Crocker, but couldn’t find a link to it online). I topped the cupcake with the white frosting, then dipped the cupcake into a plate of the sprinkles, pressing all areas to ensure coverage of all the frosting.
To top each cupcake, I created a candy heart in bright white. Before pouring the bright white candy melt into the mold, I added some sugar sprinkles in the mold, so they would match the sugar sprinkles on top of each cupcake. Once the candy melt had set, I then “attached” the heart with a bit of the white frosting.
Here are the cupcakes:
And a couple up close (in her favorite colors, purple and pink):
Happy Birthday, Sami! So glad I got to spend the afternoon with you, your friends, and all the moms crafting some pretty cool stuff!
