Rapunzel Cupcakes

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we adore having little mini-parties for the kiddo. Turning a playdate into a party is just kind of our thing. And there’s nothing more fun than throwing a party with your kiddo’s favorite Disney princesses.


That’s why, when she asked for a Tangled party, I just couldn’t say “no”. And these Rapunzel cupcakes she helped me make?! WOW! Just so cute! They were hard to eat, they were so adorable. But, they tasted awesome, so…

If you’re ready to make some Tangled cupcakes for a Rapunzel party, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Tangled Cupcakes

  • Start with your favorite vanilla cupcake. I like to use my Lazy Girl cupcake recipe. It’s no-fail fluffy-and-light-cupcakes anyone can make, as long as you follow the directions.
  • Don’t get too hung-up on making each Pascal perfect. He’s a chameleon. And this is just one of the edible party favors. It’s not like he’s something the kids can even take home. Trust me. He doesn’t have to be “perfect”.
  • When swirling your cupcake icing, go slow. That way you can turn it while you’re moving and give it that extra twist. So much prettier that way.
  • Don’t be Mother Gothel. Let the kids help decorate these easy princess cupcakes. They can put the flowers on, they can put Pascal’s eyes on, they can help curl his tail. There’s just so much they can do–and have fun doing!

Tips for a Fun Fairy Tale Party

  • If you want to do something fun as an activity like making floating lanterns that the kids can send off, that would be a perfect Rapunzel and Flynn Rider activity for the birthday party! You can DIY your own with this awesome pattern, or I found some cute paper lanterns here that I’m thinking of getting. Kind of an essential party supply, if you ask me.
  • To decorate the table, I’m thinking of getting some yellow yarn to represent Rapunzel hair that we can drape over the whole party table. I’m also going to set out a frying pan and some hoof prints like the guards horse just trotted through. Not trying to make it Disney World here, but plans…

Anybody could make these easy Rapunzel cupcakes for a Tangled party. They're so simple, but they're really fast and simple. Seriously.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 6 of your favorite vanilla cupcakes
  • 1/2 can of your favorite vanilla frosting
  • 1 cup marshmallow fondant or white modeling chocolate
  • Green GEL food coloring
  • NEON Purple food coloring
  • Gold pearl sprinkles
  • Flower with Pearl Sprinkles (a mix I found at the grocery store)
  • 12 candy eyeballs


  1. Break your marshmallow fondant into one quarter-sized portion. 
  2. With 10-15 drops of green GEL food coloring, work that into the larger portion of marshmallow fondant.
  3. With the smaller portion of fondant, work in 20-25 drops of green GEL food coloring.
  4. Using the lighter of the two marshmallow fondant portions, break it up into 6 equal portions.
  5. Form each portion into a ball, then lengthen and extend one end to form a tail, round the center to form Pascal’s body, and gently roll the other end to form a head.
  6. Curl the tail end up toward the body.
  7. Using your fingernail or a spoon, press into the lower portion of the center body area toward the tail to form the shape of a back leg, then repeat to form the general shape of a front leg.
  8. Pinch at the top of the back of the body, from the head to the tail, to form the crest along his back.
  9. Press a candy eyeball on each side of Pascal’s face.
  10. Using the darker of the marshmallow fondant portions, pull off a very small portion and roll it in your hand to form a very small cylinder. Place one cylinder on top of each of Pascal’s eyes to form eyelids. how to make rapuzel cupcakes for a tangled party
  11. Place all the Pascals in the refrigerator until you’re ready to put them on the cupcakes.
  12. Using your fingernail or a spoon, press into the front of Pascal’s face to form a smile.
  13. With your largest decorating tip, press into the top of the cupcake off-center, creating a well. Save hole tops.
  14. Place 1 tablespoon of gold pear sprinkles inside the well in the cupcake.
  15. Replace hole top on each cupcake.
  16. Mix 10-15 drops of neon purple food coloring into your vanilla frosting, stirring until the color is consistent.
  17. Place star tip in piping bag and fill with frosting.
  18. Frost each cupcake in a swirl, turning the piping bag as you pipe.
  19. Place 3-4 pearl sprinkles and a flower sprinkle on top and to one side of each cupcake.
  20. Place a Pascal on each cupcake on the other side. how to make tangled cupcakes for a rapunzel party
