Pin It One of the mom's at Cole's school asked me if I would make cupcake for her son's upcoming birthday party. I said no problem I would love to, then came the theme. Most theme's don't stump me but when Tron came back I did do the Scooby Doo .. Rut Ro. I hit up Pinterest and sadly it was very limited. Thankfully he liked a simple theme of just the circle logo.
Sunday I made the cupcakes, I found a really yummy Yellow Cake on Can You Stay for Dinner (another amazing site for recipes). It is a very simple recipe to follow and the cake turned out super moist and yummy! Click the link above for her yummy recipe.
Now to the Tron Design:
Next on my list was to make the tron cupcakes. I saw a few different versions on Pinterest but I'm not a fan of black frosting. So I though I'll frost the cupcakes then I'll make black round disk (using my silicone cupcake pan) and then melt aqua melty to do the circle inside.
What you need:
2 Bags Black Candy Melts (Wilton)
1 Bag Blue Candy Melts (Wilton)
Frosting (You can use can or make Buttercream)
For the Black disc I melted the melts in the microwave for 1 minute and then put a spoonful into my silicone cupcake mold. NOW when it is all set take a knife around to loosen and then carefully pop out. Believe me my first batch broke because I didn't do that!
For the Blue I melted the melts in the microwave for 1 minute and then put into a pipping bag with a small tip to make my circles. I put back into fridge to harden up and then I frosted my cupcakes and added the disk on top. That way people could take them off if they didn't want to eat and they didn't get a mouth of black frosting which I think taste gross.
