I think you all know that we’re big Avengers fans here. We’re big Marvel fans. I gasped when I saw Stan Lee go by me in his wheelchair last summer. I couldn’t think of a single thing to say! We see ALL of their movies in the theater, and I was so happy last year when Thor: Ragnarok came out and it was the first time we saw a Marvel movie as a family of four. In the past, we had gotten a sitter for both kids, or for the last couple of years, a sitter for Des. He loved the movie! It has some darkness and it’s long and the only way we could get his morale up was to tell him that Hulk was going to be in the movie.
He is a fan and I am a fan! These Hulk Smash Cupcakes would be perfect for any superhero party or movie night. We are SO excited to see Avengers: Infinity War and we have our tickets for Friday. It’s actually a big week for us, and I’ll be talking on my blog tomorrow (tonight at midnight, actually) about one of the most important topics in my entire life, if not THE most important one. So I hope you’ll tune in! It’s a personal one. Anyway, it’s time for the cupcakes. Don’t they look smashing?
Avengers Hulk Smash Cupcakes:
1 box of white cake mix, any brand
1 1/4 C. water
1/2 C. vegetable oil
4 egg whites
Green gel food coloring
Purple gel food coloring
White frosting, any brand
12 oz package of Wilton green candy melts
Wilton 1M star frosting tip
Disposable piping bag
Avengers silicone mold (I suggest purchasing 2 in order to cut down on the candy making time)
12 count muffin tin
1 – First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the cupcake liners into the muffin wells
2 – Then combine the cake mix, water, vegetable oil and egg whites, and mix well
3 – Add in the several drops of the green gel food coloring and stir to combine
4 – Fill each cupcake well about 2/3 full and bake for 18-20 minutes
5 – Insert a toothpick into the cupcakes around 18 minutes. If it comes out clean, then the cupcakes are done!
6 – Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool
7 – Pour the Wilton green candy melts into a microwave safe dish
8 – Heat in 30 second increments, stirring occasionally until melted
9 – Carefully spoon the melted chocolate into the Hulk fist section of the mold
10 – Place in the fridge to set about 20 minutes
11 – Remove from the fridge and gently pop the fists out of the silicone mold. Repeat this process until you have 16 fists total
12 – Add a few drops of purple food coloring to the white frosting and stir to combine
13 – Attach the star frosting tip to the disposable piping bag and fill with purple frosting
14 – Gently squeeze the frosting from the bag and onto the top of the cupcake in a circular motion
15 – Lastly, place a Hulk fist on top and repeat with all cupcakes
*Makes approximately 16 cupcakes
