Princesses need their sugar fix, just like the rest of us! I can’t think of a better cure for a sweet tooth than a lovely sparkly cupcake – can you?

What you need:

  • Cupcake Mix
  • Colorful frosting
  • Sugar (*See below)
  • Liquid food coloring
  • Edible decorative sprinkles
  • Optional: Fun cupcake wrappers!
Someone is really, REALLY excited for cupcake time – and she had just woken up.

Step 1

Grab your favorite, easy-as-pie cupcake mix from the store (or if you’re a baking master, whip one up from scratch!). We chose my childhood favorite – Funfetti! Woohoo!

Funfetti, yum!

Step 2

Let your mini princess pick out her favorite princess frosting. Hazel zeroed right in on her go-to color – purple! You can also make your own shade using white frosting and food coloring.

Step 3

Whip up some edible sparkles to put on top:

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid food coloring
  • *You can use granulated white sugar or any of the crystalline sugars. Avoid brown sugar (too moist) and powdered sugar (not sparkly). Use liquid food coloring because paste coloring is more difficult to mix and may discolor when baked.
  • Mix together the sugar and food coloring.
  • Bake the colored sugar in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes.
  • Store the sugar glitter in a sealed container, to protect it from moisture.
  • Side Note: These pretty sparkles will dye little (and big) fingers! You may want to use a spoon to sprinkle on.

Step 4

After your cupcakes cool, have your kiddo help you frost them with their handpicked frosting.

Step 5

Sprinkle on the edible glitter, as little or as much as she loves! Finish by arranging the edible sprinkles on the top.

Try to eat just one. I dare you.
