Tips to Make Prank Cupcakes
- I decided to start with my favorite (all time, seriously) easy vanilla cupcake recipe. This fast and no-fail cupcake is soft, moist, tasty and makes the perfect base for any cupcakes you can imagine – even broccoli-topped cupcakes for April Fool’s Day.
- However you decide you want to top your prank cupcakes, be it cream cheese frosting, buttercream or canned frosting, you are going to want to add a bit of powdered sugar to it to make the frosting more lumpy. I’ve included a recipe for making the lumpy frosting – but you can certainly use any recipe. Just make it lumpy like mashed potatoes and you’re golden.
- No matter what you decide to frost your cupcakes with, never ever put icing on cupcakes until they’re cooled completely. A warm cupcake is absolutely one of the most fantastic confections, and frosting is so much awesomeness, too. But bringing those two together is asking for the frosting to melt and turn your whole confection into an icky mess, so let those prank cupcakes cool!
