Rockstar Cupcakes

Check out some cute manly cupcakes I made for a Rock ‘n Roll birthday party for a totally rockin’ dude. I used my chocolate cupcake base with a vanilla buttercream frosting. I topped each cupcake with a skull and crossbones made from royal icing, and drew on their little, precious manly faces with edible marker.

I love how the primary colors pop between the dark cupcake and the white skull. (The color palette was suggested by the birthday boy’s equally rockin’ girlfriend.) I achieved the stripes in the swirls by painting icing gel on the piping bag before I filled it with frosting. I’m hoping to have a royal icing tutorial for you all sometime soon, but until then feast your eyes on these:


  1. These are freaking adorable…echhem…I mean manly. 🙂 Looking forward to an icing tutorial!

  2. now thats pretty cool! you rock! why dont you try adding some black parallel lines for the teeth?

    I feel like I am at a KISS concert (or I should be)
