Frozen cake decorating is a fun and creative way to add a unique touch to any special occasion. Making your own cupcakes and frosting is a great way to save money, time and make tasty treats for your friends and family. You can make simple frostings for cupcakes using vanilla or lemon extract, or you can create spectacular designs with more complicated flavors such as chocolates, almonds, and dates. The possibilities are endless.
For this project, start by pre-planning the ingredients you will need. Start with a pre-made cake pan or cupcake liner, non-stick spray, and a small assortment of frosting recipes including blue gel food coloring. A good tip is to pre-treat your cake with the food color before you bake it, which will give you an easier time removing the cake from the pan once it is cool enough to be removed. You may also want to pre-heat your oven to prepare your pans.
Prepare your cupcake batter according to the package directions. Using an offset spatula, press the frosting into the cupcake liner. It should be just room to cover the entire top of the cupcake. If you were to bake a regular cupcake, you would not need to cover the top. Once the frosting is in place, smooth it out with a spatula so that it does not stick.
Next, you will need to add the following ingredients. Make sure to include all of the following: two cups of milk, three/4 cup of heavy whipping cream, one teaspoon of vanilla, and approximately three to four tablespoons of powdered sugar. You can find inexpensive dessert mixes at your local grocery store, like vanilla pudding mix or chocolate chip cookie mix. The powdered sugar will help thicken the cake decor when mixed with the milk.
Now it is time to preheat your oven and prepare your cupcakes. Line your cupcake baking pan with unbleached flour, then set the oven to 350 degrees. When preparing your frozen cake decor, you can use a box or tub of gum paste along with approximately three to four eggs, depending on the size of your cupcake pan. Utilize the toothpicks provided with the frozen treat so that your cupcakes will come out clean.
Mix the powdered sugar with the egg whites until they are blended. Now it is time to add the milk, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream. Mix until all ingredients are completely blended. Pour this mixture over the cake that has been prepared and allow for the cake to dry completely before removing it from the oven.
Now it is time to remove your cupcake from the oven. Using a rubber or plastic ring, carefully lift and flip the cupcake over so that the inside is now on top. Carefully slide off the outer edge of the cupcake, so that it can now be inspected. If you see that there is any air in your homemade whipped cream frosting, you can gently pop it back into the cupcake.
Finally, add your unsalted butter and heavy whipping cream. Whichever is the preferred method for you, place the decorations back into the cupcake tin. Cover the cupcake tightly and let it cool until it’s completely set. Once cooled, you can now enjoy your homemade dessert.
Understanding The Requirements
It is also important to set your timer for this recipe so that your cupcakes will bake fast and will be done when you are ready to serve them. When your cupcakes are done, simply run your blender again and whip up another batch of batter. If you find that your frosting is still too thin, you can add additional egg whites, one at a time, until you achieve the thick frosting that you desire. You may also add more heavy cream if you want the finished product to be more luscious.
As always, it is best to start out with the plainest frosting possible. From here, you can choose between plain chocolate, unsalted butter, and even minted or flavored frosting flavors. It is best to experiment with a combination of three or four types of frostings, as this will ensure that your Disney frozen cupcakes are absolutely perfect! At this point, you can decide whether or not you would like to use a basic vanilla flavor, one that has a lot of flavor, or one that is very mild. As a matter of fact, you may even choose to add a pinch of salt in order to bring out the true essence of any particular flavor.
For the final step, you will need to add your wet ingredients, mixing until they are completely blended. Then, you will add your dry ingredients, mixing until they are combined into a batter. The last step is to spoon the batter into your cupcake tin, ensuring that the tops of the cupcakes are covered with the buttermilk. Let the frozen treat be warm in the oven for a few minutes before removing them from the oven and placing them on a cooling rack.
