We had a lot of different desserts at our Frozen Birthday Party … Mini Cakes, Rice Krispie Treats, Pretzel Bites, Frosted Sugar Cookies, but no cupcakes! As we were making our Christmas Swirl Cupcakes, Laurie and I said, practically in unison “These cupcakes would look so beautiful in our Frozen Ombre colors.” We were not wrong. I think these Frozen Ombre Swirl Cupcakes are the most beautiful cupcakes that we have ever made. They would definitely be the star at any Frozen Birthday Party! (And P.S. – they are really easy to make!)
How to make Frozen Ombre Swirl Cupcakes
You will need:
- Best Buttercream Frosting
- Americolor Sky Blue Food Coloring
- Americolor Royal Blue Food Coloring
- Pastry Bags
- Wilton 2D Decorating Tip
First, make a batch of cupcakes. These are basic yellow cake cupcakes but you could use white cupcakes or chocolate cupcakes too.
The key to these delicious Frozen Ombre Swirl Cupcakes is our Best Buttercream Frosting recipe. You will find the recipe and directions here. We split the batch of frosting into four equal portions. I left one quarter of the buttercream frosting white. To create the three shades of Frozen blue, we used Americolor Sky Blue and Royal Blue Food Coloring in the following amounts:
- Light Blue – 1 Drop of Sky Blue Food Coloring
- Medium Blue – 2 Drops of Sky Blue Food Coloring
- Dark Blue – 3 Drops of Sky Blue Food Coloring and 1 Drop of Royal Blue Food Coloring
Put the frosting in pastry bags.
Using a Wilton 2D frosting tip, make a full circles of dark blue frosting around the edge of the cupcake.
Next, use the Wilton 2D frosting tip with the medium blue frosting. Apply a second circle of frosting but it should be a little smaller than the dark blue frosting layer as shown in the picture above.
Next, use the Wilton 2D frosting tip with the light blue frosting. Apply a third circle of frosting but it should be a little smaller than the medium blue frosting layer as shown in the picture above.
Lastly, a final circle of white frosting, this time swirling the top up into a peak.
These Frozen Ombre Swirl Cupcakes are beautiful and are perfect for a Frozen Birthday Party!
