Cupcakes are usually sweet & innocently delicious desserts. These cupcakes add a little pop with rock candy on top. They are a fun easy twist to cupcakes. The rock candy toppping is a sweet surprise alternative from sprinkles. You can add interesting flavors with the candy as well: bubblegum, rasberry, strawberry- so many possibilities.
- cake of choice (vanilla shown here)
- rock candy (bubblegum shown)
- frosting of choice
Directions: Bake cupcakes as directed. Let cool and frost. Break up rock candy off stick and mix into a bowl. Sprinkle on top- it should stick easily to the frosting. For a cute extra- you can put some rock candy or a bubblegum in the middle of the cupcake for a sweet surprise.
One thought on “Rock Candy Cupcakes”
Neat! They look so pretty. I bet the textures would be interesting: crunchy from the rock candy contrasting the soft cupcake.
