Mardi Gras Cupcakes

Time is passing by so quickly … Fat Tuesday is next week … the beginning of Mardi Gras, Carnival and Lent.

I whipped up these cupcakes very quickly … you can too 🙂

This is what you will need …

  • Cupcakes
  • Yellow frosting in a pastry bag & tip #1M
  • Yellow candy melts (yellow chocolate) & a squeeze bottle
  • Wax paper
  • Purple & green sprinkles
  • Toothpicks with frills
  • CK American Gold Disco Dust

Make the masks –  I drew a mask “pattern” as a guideline (I’m no artist), covered it with wax paper and laid the toothpicks in place …

Use the melted yellow candy in a squeeze bottle to draw the masks … make sure that the candy goes over the toothpick …

Sprinkle gold disco dust … I dip a brush in the disco dust and tap the brush …

Let the candy harden up.  Do you see the mask without disco dust?  I made a little boo-boo … the candy can be melted and used again …

Frost your cupcakes …

Add the purple (bad photo, they’re not blue) sprinkles … Go Lakers! (sorry, I couldn’t resist) …

And the green sprinkles … now they are looking like Mardi Gras cupcakes …

Add a mask and they are complete …

Enjoy a cupcake … and maybe have a Hurricane with it …

I ♥ your comments …

  1. Great looking cupcakes; very enpressive.
    Can a person get the disco dust in craft stores by cake decorating supplies or just on line.of which I don’t do.
