Servings: 12 cupcakes



  • Before starting the decorating cupcakes, ensure that all of them are cool. It's best to cool them on a wire rack so the frosting won't melt off.
  • In a large bowl, beat together your softened butter, confectioners’ sugar, and milk with an electric mixer.
  • Start on a slow speed and then gradually increase to high speed.
  • Your buttercream is ready once all the ingredients are smooth and form semi-stiff peaks.
  • Divide the buttercream into two bowls.
  • Add red gel food coloring to one and blue gel food coloring to the other.
  • Mix each buttercream well until the buttercreams are completely tinted and well blended.
  • Attach the star tip to the frosting bag.
  • Scoop both buttercreams into a frosting bag, keeping each color on their own sides in the frosting bag.
  • Begin to frost each cupcake swirling out from the center then back up in the center to form the desired design.
  • Top each cupcake with one bubblegum candy.
  • Serve and enjoy!
