Fourth of July Sundae Cupcakes
Its been a dreary, rainy day. If it rains too much longer I may just float away. I mean really what's up with all the bad weather?
The kids are all stuck inside.....driving each other nuts. Before they killed each other and I had to clean up all the blood (no fun at all), I decided to cheer them up with dessert. After all dessert makes everything better......RIGHT?
Off to the kitchen I headed to make them something cute, yet easy.
I made them these super easy sundae cupcakes.
Use your favorite cake recipe. I used the Wilton jumbo cupcake pan (the sundaes call for the King sized cupcake pan but I just used what I had)
Bake according to your cake directions.
Allow to cool on a wire rack.
Starting at the outer edge of the cupcake, using a 1M tip, swirl the top of the cupcakes working inward.
Then make a second swirl smaller than the first, starting inward a bit. Stop at center and pull up.
Place candy cherry bomb or red fondant rolled in a ball on top of swirl.
Sprinkle with red, white and blue sprinkles.
Insert candy stick if you have available. If not use a candle and insert it upside down as I did here.
It's very easy and will be sure to brighten your children's day when they are stuck inside.
