Hey there Disney Fans, Steph from Crafting in the Rain here today. Who says only princesses get to have all the fun, right? With the upcoming movie Maleficent, I just knew I had to do something to celebrate the film to share with you. Hence, these Maleficent cupcakes!
They’re super easy, but you can totally tell what they’re supposed to be, right?
- Cupcakes (I used chocolate, baked in purple liners)
- Frosting (I used this frosting recipe from Our Best Bites and added a few drops of mint flavor and 3 drops green food color)
- Black candy melts
- Maleficent horn pattern, printed
- Wax paper
- Sandwich bag
While cupcakes are baking, print out the horn pattern and place a piece of wax paper over the top. Melt some black candy in the microwave and pour into a sandwich bag with a tiny bit of one corner cut off. Squeeze some of the candy onto the wax paper and spread it around with a toothpick, filling the pattern. Try to work quickly so it doesn’t set up on you. Let cool. (Make a few more than you think you need in case some break.)
When cupcakes have cooled, frost them and top each one with a candy horn piece that you’ve peeled off of the wax paper.
So are you excited for the movie too? Wouldn’t Maleficent cupcakes be perfect for a movie night party, or save it up for Halloween?
