1
Recipe of your favourite Cupcakes, baked and cooled
Frosting:
1 cup
Unsalted  Butter
4 - 6 cups
Icing Sugar
5 Tbsp
Tonic Water
1-2 Tbsp
Vanilla
Glow-in-the-dark Icing Dip:
1
Small Box Lime Jello
1 cup
Boiling Water
1 cup
Tonic Water

Prepare your favourite cupcake recipe,

Frosting:

Beat butter until smooth, gradually add icing sugar alternately with the 5 Tbsp. tonic water. Stir in vanilla. (Frosting should be stiff for these cupcakes.) Frost the Cupcakes, using lots of icing and swirling to make high peaks. Place the frosted cupcakes in freezer until ready to dip.

Glow-in-the-Dark Icing Dip:

Mix jello and boiling water, stir 2 minutes until dissolved. Add the 1 cup of tonic water and stir. Place the bowl of jello in a large bowl of ice water and stir until jello is cool to the touch. Continue to stir. You want the jello to cool down, but not begin to set up. When the jello is cool to the touch, remove it from the ice water.

Remove a couple cupcakes at a time from the freezer and dip in jello mixture.

Place the dipped cupcakes back in freezer; repeat this dipping and freezing process 4-6 times.

To serve, display your Cupcakes under a black light for an extra glow.

Helpful Tips:

Be sure to stir the jello each time and watch it so it doesn’t start setting up. If it does get thick, dipping the cupcake 4 times will work as well, but 6 is better.
