We made a rainbow cake and decided to put the extra baked cake tops to good use. Because we had the most red and blue, it made perfect sense to make something patriotic. So we did. We made patriotic polka dotted cupcakes and they were fantastic.
We used the extra red and blue cake by mashing it into balls about the width of a dime. Then we made a box mix of white cake and layered it in the cupcake liners with the red and blue balls.
These cupcake liners and this pan are from Wilton. They are super fun because they make mega tall cupcakes! You can get them here!
Once the cupcakes were completely cooled, we added butter cream frosting and sprinkles to the tops. To decorate the liners, we tied ribbons and added a hand stamped tag using our stamp from Expressionery! This stamp is called the Cupcake Heart Custom Stamp and we LOVE it. So.Darn.Cute.
When we cut into the cupcake, it was a huge TA DA! Check it out. This one had two red dots and two blue that got put right next to each other.
Go for it. Give it a try. Even if you end up with a red, white and blue mess…it will be sweet and delicious!
