My daughter really, really LOVES the movie "Tangled".
She owns all the dolls, sings all the songs, quotes all the lines,
and can tell you who does the voice of every character.
When "Beauty and the Beast 3D" came to theaters, she HAD to see it...
because there was a new "Tangled" short before the movie.
We just celebrated her birthday, and you can guess what theme she chose.
I created these Rapunzel tower cupcakes for her party.
I was inspired by these cupcakes at Confessions of a Cookbook Queen.
Want to make some too?
What you will need:
Flat bottom ice cream cups
Your favorite cupcake recipe
White and purple candy melts
Yellow, green and pink frosting
Yellow moldable candies (Laffy Taffy or Starburst work great)
Mix up your cupcake batter.
Place the flat bottomed cups in a muffin tin.
Fill the cups only 1/2 full with batter (this is important!).
Bake as your recipe directs.
Melt your candy melts on 50% power in the microwave,
stirring at 30 second intervals until smooth.
(I used mostly white, with a few purple thrown in to make lavender.)
Use a pastry brush to coat the outside of each sugar cone.
Place the cones on a sheet of wax paper and let dry.
(I forgot to take a photo of this next part.)
Pipe yellow frosting on top of the cupcakes,
making sure to cover the entire top, all the way out to the edge.
Place a sugar cone on top of each cupcake, pressing down into the frosting.
Pipe some green leaves on your tower (Wilton tip #67).
Add a few pink flowers among the leaves (Wilton tip #16).
Microwave your yellow candies for 5-10 seconds.
Flatten them with a rolling pin and cut out window shapes.
Put a little frosting on the back of each window, and attach them to your towers.
Since we had to transport these cupcakes to the party,
my husband created a custom cupcake carrier (similar to this one)
using a thick cardboard box.
Best. Birthday. EVER!
