Tips to Make Ninja Decorated Cupcakes
- Start with your favorite vanilla cupcakes. I always break out my recipe for Lazy Girl Cupcakes–because it’s no-fail and just consistent. And it calls for pretty standard stuff, nothing weird that I might not have on any given day.
- You can absolutely use canned fondant–I do it all the time. But if you’d rather make it homemade, I found this super quick and fun recipe to make your own homemade marshmallow fondant that’s so tasty, it’s amazing.
- Never, ever ice your cupcakes without waiting for the cupcakes to cool completely. Any amount of frosting and warm cupcakes just makes a mess. So, let me say it for the folks in the back–wait for the cupcakes to cool.
- Definitely let the kids help you make these cupcakes. They’re super simple and really you don’t have to have “neat” frosting. Plus, it’s super simple to put the eyes on and the ninja mask. Let the kids help–this is the cupcake you want them to help with.
