Breaking Bad Cupcakes.

“I am the one who knocks.”

Breaking Bad, Walter White, Season 4, Episode 6


It’s no secret, it really isn’t, I love TV shows. I am absolutely terribly immensely distraught that Breaking Bad is ending. In honor of the end of Breaking Bad I made mini cupcakes. The actual cake is just a normal white box cake but I made coconut frosting and a dyed flavored sugar. (Nut = Jesse, White cake = Walter, get it? GET IT? Ha.) To make the cupcakes make box cake as directed and cool. I also hollowed the center and added the colored sugar to the middle of each cupcake. The frosting was intentionally made messy, just like Jesse would have done it.

For the frosting you will need:

1½ cups granulated sugar
6 egg whites
1½ cups unsalted butter, at room temperature, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
⅔ cup coconut milk

coloed sugar

For the sugar:

1/2 Cup of Sparkling Sugar

 1/4 tsp. of Cornstarch

Food coloring or Food gel

Zip-lock bag – try to make sure it is thick, or double bag the sugar before mixing.

What To Do:

Pour sugar into zip-lock bag add a few drops of food coloring or gel color. Depending on the color you need add a little at a time. You can mix food coloring to make colors as well, and shake, shake, shake! Make sure you press out with your fingers any clumps that may happen. If you want to flavor the sugar you can add 1/2 tsp. of extract of vanilla, coconut, mint, etc. and continue to shake and press out clumps.  Add the 1/4 tsp. of cornstarch to keep sugar from feeling “sticky”, if you added extract you may need 1/4 tsp. more of cornstarch.

PS – Like my football nails? Super easy to do, just saying.
