How To Make Circus Balloon Cupcakes
Are you looking for an easy Circus Cupcake idea? Well, look no further. These quickie cupcakes will be done in no time at all and are as easy as icing, sprinkles and colorful balloon cluster cake novelties. They're perfect for a First Birthday Circus Party or a Whimsical Carnival Party for tots. You can use a box mix to make these treats and store bought icing. But, we have to admit, we're partial to our Vanilla Cake Recipe and Brenda's Bakery Buttercream for a more homemade taste.
Recipe Note: We recommend adding the balloon cupcake novelties right before presentation rather than traveling with them inserted.
STEP 1: BAKE CUPCAKES IN RED AND YELLOW CUPCAKE LINERS
Bake your cupcakes using a box mix or our Vanilla Cake Recipe.
STEP 2: TINT ICING LIGHT BLUE AND PIPE CUPCAKES
Tint your store bought or Brenda's Bakery Buttercream light blue. Use a piping bag fitted with a plain cupcake tip to pipe a swirl on top and then add the primary colored confetti sprinkles.
STEP 3: ADD NOVELTY BALLOONS
Use scissors to cut the balloon clusters different heights. Insert the balloons once the cupcakes are where they will be served.
