ABC Block Cupcakes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Place 1/4 cup frosting in a decorating bag fitted with a small star tip; set aside. Place 1-1/2 cups frosting in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) about 30 seconds or until just melted. Frost the cupcakes with the melted white frosting. Divide remaining frosting into three portions; using paste food coloring, tint each portion a different color. Place frostings in separate pastry bags fitted with small round tips, or place in resealable plastic bags and snip off a small piece from one corner of each bag. Pipe colored square outlines on tops of cupcakes. Pipe white stars in corners; pipe dots in centers of stars.
  2. On a surface lightly dusted with powdered sugar, divide fondant into three portions. Tint each portion a different color with food coloring. Knead each portion until evenly colored.*** (Work with one portion of fondant at a time and keep fondant covered when not using.) Roll out fondant to 1/8-inch thickness.
  3. Use 1-1/2- to 2-1/2-inch alphabet or number cookie cutters to cut out shapes. Place the letters on frosted cupcakes. If desired, use frosting in a pastry bag fitted with a small round tip to pipe outlines on the letters with frosting. Makes 12 large or 24 small cupcakes.

From the Test Kitchen

*Test Kitchen Tip:

Square muffin pans vary in size. For 12 large cupcakes, use 2-1/2-inch square muffin cups that are 1-1/2 inches deep. For 24 smaller cupcakes, use 2-1/2 inch square muffin cups that are 7/8 inch deep, spooning 1/4 cup batter into each. If you do not have square muffin cups, use 2-1/2-inch round muffin cups lined with paper bake cups.

**Test Kitchen Tip:

White rolled fondant can be found in the cake decorating department of most hobby and crafts stores.

***Test Kitchen Tip:

If you like, wear plastic gloves to keep from discoloring your hands.
