Neon Striped Cupcakes Tutorial

Zinnnng! I just zapped you with outrageous neon colours. No, I didn't. But I did create these neon striped cupcakes for you. They are cute and not really that outrageous at all. 

If I had piled on neon buttercream and a bunch of neon fondant doo-nads on top of each one and then dipped the whole shebang into a bucket load of rainbow sprinkles, that might be outrageous. These are more ... subtly neon! 

Perfect for an 80s themed party, a circus themed party, a primary colours party, a tight and bright party, a Pride party... oh, the list goes on. 










I used these cute little cupcake separator thingies that worked pretty well! They are made of food safe plastic and they nestle into your cupcake liner so you can pour the batter in stripes. Neat, right? You can find a link to the batter separators, called Batter Babies by Kimberware, here. 

Happy stripey times, cake pals!

Such a cute tutorial! Totally shared it on twitter. Wonder if it will work with veg. based colorings (like beet juice).
