Devil Cupcakes

Yields: 12 decorated cupcakes

Ingredients:

Chocolate cake box mix + all the ingredients indicated on the box to make cupcakes**

1 stick butter (approx. ½ cup), softened

2 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 tbsp cocoa powder

1 ½ tbsp milk

½ tsp red gel food coloring

4 oz. black fondant

 

 

Directions:

Prepare cupcakes according to the mix’s directions. Bake and allow to cool completely before decorating.

 

In a large bowl, add butter, confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder and milk. Use an electric mixer to beat until completely combined and smooth.

 

Add red food colouring to the buttercream mixture and beat until completely tinted.

 

 

Scoop red buttercream into a piping bag with round Wilton icing tip #12. Frost each cupcake.

 

 

Divide the black fondant into ¾ inch spheres – you will need 24 of them.

 

Shape each sphere into a cylinder, about 1 inch long and ½ an inch wide.

 

 

Point one end of each fondant cylinder and then give it a curve upwards.

 

Place two black fondant shapes on each cupcake – these will act as the devil horns. You will want the pointy side always sticking out of the cupcake.

 

Serve and enjoy!
