I am one of those crazy pregger ladies who needs to sleep with a notepad by my bed, because I wake up several times in the night thinking about something I need to get done. One night, a few weeks ago, I woke with some new ideas for the Sweetsy Bar
Notepad in hand I wrote down the makings of Funky-Fetti (My spin on the good o' box of Funfetti cake) cupcakes with (drum roll please)...Tie Dye Frosting. In my head it was fantastic, but I didn't know if it would actually work, until I executed it (oh, like 20 minutes before we rushed out the door to the party. No big deal).
OMG. presh-fest 2012...
First, you need to make my no fail buttercream frosting.
It is ridiculously easy and oh so tasty! I then sectioned off
a bit of frosting in 3 bowls and added food color gel (primary colors)
Side note: a (very) little goes a long way in the color gel department.
I loaded a pastry bag, sliding the 3 colors into the bag
in 3 sections with as much order as I could manage. As you can see
in the photo, it was a borderline hot mess (bhm), but view on...
this bhm went on to do some pretty amazing things
Stop it, huh! I mean, really? I still can't stand it!
The Funky-fetti cupcakes, with a few
of the other goodies that made their
way to the Sweetsy Bar (TM).
Can someone go ahead and (TM) that bad boy for me?
