How to Make GLOW-IN-THE-DARK Cupcakes | RECIPE


hello everybody welcome back today we are making some glow-in-the-dark cupcake so I saw this recipe for glow-in-the-dark buttercream things like a couple months ago and I thought it would be so cool for Halloween this buttercream is 100% edible you can eat the whole thing you don’t have to worry about it and this secret that makes it go in the door and store go in the dark is actually tonic water strangely enough if you place tonic water under black light it glows so that is what we use in the buttercream to make it glow you are going to need a black light for these they don’t just glow when you turn the lights off but the effect is so cool so if you’re having a Halloween party just place a black light on like the table that you’re serving everything in place the cupcake surrounded and they’ll glow and it’s so cool so let’s get started so first make the buttercream what you want to do is place the butter in a large bowl and beat it with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy add some tonic water and four cups of confectioner’s sugar and mix until combined so either making two cups of confectioner’s sugar and beat well then hop the buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a large brown tip I have a large roll of buttercream onto each cupcake then trance the cupcakes to the fridge for at least an hour or until the buttercream is very stiff in the meantime we’re going to make the glows and darks glaze you want to combine some jello and boiling water and whisk until the jello has fully dissolved so I’m using lime jell-o just because in the recipe that I referred to it said that yellow jello or group so that lime jell-o or lemon jello would work the best probably just because they’re a little bit brighter so I’d recommend keeping within that kind of color range but if your heart is set on another color that’s totally fine try it out I’m not sure if it’s going to glow as much especially if it’s like a darker color but you are more than welcome to try it out and definitely let me know how it goes then add a cup of chilled tonic water and whisk together a vigil to cool to room temperature but not so cool that it starts to set then dental cupcakes into the glaze so that only the buttercream is getting coated and then plays the cupcakes in the freezer until the glaze has set and then you want to repeat this 5 more times for a total of six layers and so six layers is going to make the cupcakes glow the brightest that a lien should do is serve the cupcake under a blacklight and watch them glow how cool is this and you are done so thank you guys so much for watching I hope you like this recipe you can hear the little purring whatever in the noise in the background that’s Paddington he got a new bed and he’s very excited I hope you guys have a fantastic weekend and I will see you on Tuesday for another Halloween recipe bye

  1. Could these work with unflavored gelatin and food coloring??? If you don't want to have lime cupcakes

  2. Key word is blacklight. They won't glow in the regular dark. So, serve them in the night clubs. Then they will glow. Google Tonic in Blacklight and see photos. Feel stupid because I believed that tonic makes wonder. It doesn't.

  3. So you said do this 5 times dunking in jello. My question is. Will the hello set in all that time ? Will I have to keep repeating and making fresh each time ?
