BBQ Grill Themed Cupcakes

Next on my list to make for the End of Year BBQ was some fun cupcakes.  I had so many plans, let's just say they did NOT go as planned so I went to plan B.  I did find a fun idea that ran with and made my own, was these super cute BBQ Cupcakes on Two Busy Blondes.  She pipped chocolate to make the grills, I was pressed for time so I just used some gel and made my grills.  See below on what I did.


What you need:
Cupcakes frosted
Black Gel Frosting (Or make with chocolate)
Candy or Candy Clay for top of grill

I made a batch of Moist Fluffy Vanilla Cupcakes found on Life, Love and Sugar and frosted with my Sturdy Buttercream Frosting.  I used my frosting knife to smooth the frosting down. I used my Wilton Glitter Black gel to make a circle with lines going down to look like a grill on a BBQ.  I had some left over Candy Clay I made to make the items on top of the grill.

Candy Clay:
12 oz Candy Melts (In the color you want)
1/4 Cup Light Corn Syrup

Melt the chocolate until it's smooth, mix in the corn syrup.  Once it's all mixed up and sticking together wrap in plastic wrap (lay it flat).  I found mine had to sit overnight to harden up and work it to what I needed.  A little powder sugar helps it not stick to the counter and mold it to what you want.

For the cupcakes I used brown candy clay to make burgers.  Orange candy clay for cheese, if I had yellow I would have used that instead (I used what I had on hand). I used red, green and orange on a toothpick to look like grilling peppers :).


I made a few fun cupcakes to match the swim theme also!
