I cannot believe its Feb. Another month started into the year, another mortgage payment due…and Mardi Gras this week. Its like my life is flashing in front of my eyes. And because of the new month, I know there will be a lot of celebrations to come. If not this month for you, sometime during the rest of the year, so I wanted to provide a really fun way to create cupcakes in a cone, perfect for birthday and classroom parties, that we have aptly named Unicorn Poop Cupcakes.
Why unicorn poop? Cause unicorns poop rainbows. Duh.
And cause my kids think its funny as heck.
“You want a unicorn poop cupcake?”
Now this recipe is two fold, like any good cake. You have to create the cake and the frosting to get the rainbow look, but overall it’s really easy and is a splash for your guests. Let’s get started!
Unicorn Poop Cupcake Cones
Ingredients for cupcakes:
- 1 package white cake mix
- 1 cup water
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- Red, blue, yellow and green food coloring
Ingredients for frosting:
- 2 sticks (1 cup) of butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp milk
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- Red, blue, yellow food coloring
Directions for Cupcakes:
- Combine your cake mix, water, eggs and oil into a bowl and mix until together. Then add into an electric mixer for 2 minutes on medium.
- Now separate your cake batter into four bowls for four colors (change varying on the colors you are using)
- Add red, green, yellow and blue food coloring separately to each bowl to create 4 different batter colors.
- Set your ice cream cones into a cupcake/muffin tin
- Alternate batter colors into each cone until you have about 1 inch room left from top, which allows for the cupcake to bake up.
- Now add your cupcake in the oven, taking care not to spill. The cupcakes are done when a toothpick comes out clean, which is anywhere from 20-25 minutes
- Cool completely before decorating
Directions for Frosting:
- Add your butter into your mixer on medium until it’s fluffy. Then add your vanilla, milk, and sugar.
- Mix together on low until its all together
- Separate your frosting into diff bowls and tint the colors you are going for. I used pink, yellow, and blue.
- Fill your 3 piping bags and cut off tip of each one.
- Attach a circle tip #1A to a separate bag with a coupler on the end and cut.
- Put 3 bags of colored frosting inside the coupler bag with the coupler so that the tip of each bag is in the circle tip, creating one frosting bag
- Swirl and Frost cupcakes into your unicorn poop!
Done! This is what you get!
Ooey, gooey, beautiful rainbow cupcakes!
