Firecracker Cupcakes

And for a cupcake for our 4th of July Party I found on Oh Nut's Firecracker Cupcakes. I took her cupcake and made it my own, I'm a use what you have on hand type of girl .. lol.

What you Need:
Red Melts
Black Licorice
Frosted Cupcakes
Sprinkles (blue or red, white and blue)

Melt your red melts in the microwave (mine takes 1 min 30 secs - check after 1 min). Once melted (be-careful not to burn) dip your marshmallow into the melts. I used my candy melts spoon to get the marshmallow out. I placed onto parchment paper to dry. I had on hand black licorice (you can use black licorice wheel also). I cut my licorice into 4 pieces and then cut one end to look like a firework exploding! I took a plastic tooth pick to make a whole in the marshmallow and then pushed the licorice into the hole. I placed in the fridge to harden up.

I did a small amount of frosting on the cupcake and rolled in blue sprinkles. I then placed more white frosting on top of that. I then placed a marshmallow firework on top. I wanted a red, white and then blue look with the layers. 

LESSON LEARNED: Washington was having a crazy HOT day we hit around 98+ degree's we are use to high 70's. SO by the time I got to the party my cupcakes were melted ... LOL. Next year if it's this hot I'll skip the cupcakes.


Thanks for Stopping by!
