It was my aunt's birthday so I decided to make her some cupcakes. I am really not a baker so I was excited when I found THIS recipe on Pinterest that claimed to make a box cake mix taste like scratch.
I had also seen THIS pin for edible glitter and wanted to try it out as an alternative to sprinkles. While I was at it, I found THIS pin for cream cheese frosting.
Here is a picture of the three piles of "glitter" that were different shades of blue. It looked absolutely nothing like the picture in the pin...although I used sugar instead of salt considering I didn't want my cupcakes to taste gross!THIS pin as a guideline for filling the tins.
The cupcakes were VERY light and airy...probably too light and airy for most people's liking. I personally prefer dense, moist cupcakes, and these were not. I don't think I'll be using this recipe again. Next time, I'll just stick to following the directions on the box. No need to pretend to be something it's not!
Here's the ombre effect of the three different shades all on one tray:
