galaxy cupcakes.

My friend (Laura!) and I made cupcakes and they turned out not bad! ๐Ÿ™‚ Which was good because we were sharing these at the Galaxy Grandma shower we threw.

We made a batch of chocolate and a batch of vanilla. To make the cupcakes galaxy themed we made purply-blue buttercream and topped them off with a sprinkle assortment.

We painted our makeshift piping bags with food gel, filled with buttercream, and piped on.

It was our first time using food gels, but we followed tips from Sweet and Savory Meals which made it super easy and less stressful. The gels were relatively simple to use, just a bit messy. It helped to cover our work area with parchment before opening any of the food gels.

Our test cupcake above. ๐Ÿ™‚ We got sprinkles from Fancy Sprinkles. OMG they are so fancy. I’m obsessed and excited to make more sparkly treats after the way these cupcakes turned out!

After our taste test, we decided on adding less buttercream for the ‘real’ cupcakes. We ended up smoothing out the buttercream with a spoon after piping since we weren’t using as much to get that swirly buttercream look. To finish off, we topped each cupcake with an iridescent star topper.

Local markets are my kind of tourist attraction. Crafternoons are my favorite. Good food makes me dance.
