Moana Birthday Cupcake Cake

This Moana cake was made for a birthday party. It’s made with 36 cupcakes, 12 each of red velvet, chocolate, and vanilla. The frosting is butter cream and the flowers and leaves are all hand made with butter cream frosting. The lettering is made of strawberry flavored candy melts.

Vanilla Cupcakes with Blueberry Frosting 

Using blueberries is a natural way to get a beautiful color frosting. The blueberries also give a very flavorful and fruity taste to the frosting. To make the frosting- I placed about 1/2 cup of  blueberries in a small saucepan on medium heat. I added 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch and let it simmer until it thickened. I let it cool while I mixed together 1 cup of softened butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 2 cups of powdered sugar and beat until fluffy. I then put the cooled blueberries in a food processor to make a sauce. I added the sauce to the butter mixture and beat until blended. I had previously made the mini flowers and leaves and kept them frozen for use when needed.

Golden State Warrior Cupcakes 

These cupcakes were made to celebrate the birthday of a big fan of the warriors. They are vanilla and chocolate cupcakes topped with butter cream and chocolate frosting.  I made the toppers using Avery labels and tooth picks.

Sweet Potato Cupcakes

These cupcakes are moist and delicious. I have finally settled on one recipe to use. When I pulled my recipes, I found that I had 5 different recipes. There were a couple that called for 3 eggs and a couple that used oil rather than butter. I decided to go with the butter and the results were perfect. I may make one slight change and cut the sugar by 1/4 cup next time. The taste was good but a bit sweeter than I prefer. I topped these cupcakes with a maple cream cheese frosting and sprinkled them with cinnamon sugar.
