Sweets for the Sweets ... Sweet 16 Cupcakes (Hot Pink Zebra)

Next on my list for Birthday Dreams (Charity delivering Birthdays to Homeless Kids) was for a 16 year old girl.  She requested Zebra and her favorite color was Hot Pink.  I did some google searching and came across a few different ideas.  I found this idea on Flickr and ran with it.


I picked up a Wilton Sugar Sheet in Zebra Print.  I happen to buy a sugar sheet cutter earlier in the year when Michael's had them and the inserts marked down on clearance.  I tinted the frosting to hot pink.

What you Need:
Baked Cupcakes (see Recipe below)
Frosting (I used my sturdy buttercream)
Hot Pink Coloring (Americolor Electric Pink)
Zebra Print Cupcake Liners

I took my Sheet Punch with the sugar sheet to make different shapes and sizes to punch out the toppers.  I used one sheet and was able to cover almost all the cupcakes.  To finish them off I used some White Candy Clay (click for recipe) and some silver shimmer dust to mold 16.


 Ingredients

1 2/3 cups (240g) all purpose flour
1 cup (200g) sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup butter (170g), room temperature
3 egg whites
3 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup (120ml) sour cream
1/2 cup (120ml) milk
Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and baking powder in a large mixing bowl.
3. Add butter, egg whites, vanilla, sour cream and milk and mix on medium speed until smooth.
4. Fill cupcake liners a little more than half way.
5. Bake 18-20 minutes.
6. Allow to cool for 1-2 minutes, then remove to cooling rack to finish cooling.
