Super Easy!!!!!!Glowing under black light cupcakes: Glaze

Stuff you will need:
10oz clear piping gel
4Tbs Tonic water with guinine
1tsp unflavored gelatin

Neon colored edible glitter

Step 1: In a safe microwave safe bowl heat up the piping gel in microwave for 30 seconds take out and stir then heat again for 15 seconds. Should have a runny consistency.

Now all you have to do is coat your cupcakes with the mixture and sprinkle with edible glitter.

Coating your cupcakes:
There are a few ways you can do this. 

One: you can freeze your icing coated cupcakes. Once frozen dip them in the above mixture. I read about this method on another blog. Here is a picture of what your cupcake will look like using this method:

Two: You can use a crusting butter cream for your cupcakes and lightly brush on the above mixture coating the tops of your cupcakes.

Three: You can just drizzle the above mixture on cupcakes. This is the method I used because I didn't want to freeze my cupcakes. Here is what your cupcake will look like using this method:

There you go!

  1. this is THE coolest thing I have ever seen in the baking world!!!!!! ahh can't get over these amazing cupcakes. They are so adorable and perfect for places where its dark (duh) so you can see what you're eating!! AHHH

  2. The look is very Wow! The neon colored edible glitter looks like Disco dust. It's the samething?

    Thank you

  3. Hello Thanks! Yes you can use a neon disco glitter.

  4. Hii I jst try this effect last night n had no success.. :( wat did i do wrong.... my mix after a while went from liquid to jello... does this effect last long or its asoon as u mix n then gone plz help... i measured and followed xactly as u said

  5. I am sorry to hear you didnt have any luck with this recipe. I am not sure why it didn't work. I just made this again 3 days ago and it worked fine and the black light glow effect lasted until they were consumed(6 hour party).
    Yes the liquid does turn into thicker consistency over time but you should have plenty of time to put this liquid mixture on your cupcakes before it thickens.

    Did you use a colorant in the liquid mixture? I know when I was experimenting I added a colorant and it didn't glow.

    1. thanks soo much , i believe tht was the problem i added color to the liquid mixture... how do u add the color to the cupcakes? and does this work fine on a cake?

  6. There are no pictures to see what it's supposed to look like under your directions like it says...Can you post some so I can see what it looks like?

  7. Any chance you could post the pics as its supposed to look like? I can't see them where they say they are supposed to be! Thanks so much!
