Tangled Inspired Cupcakes!

Tangled came out on dvd here in the UK last week :) None of my family had seen it so we all watched it on Saturday night :) They laughed ... they cried ... and they loved it :D
I made these cupcakes during the day to munch on while we watched it :)
After all, you can't have a movie night without munchies! :P

I found this gooorgeous pic of Rapunzels hair when it's in braids with pretty flowers in it :) and thought I could make cupcakes iced yellow with pretty flower designs on them!

And here's what I ended up with!

And here's how I made them! :)

These were super super easy to make, I just had to find the right decorations!

I used ready made chocolate chip cupcakes (shh!) because I didn't have a lot of time that day! But they were Bakin' Boys so it's cool :P For the yellow icing I used Betty Crocker vanilla icing ( this stuff is amaaaazing! lol! ) and added some yellow food colouring.

For decorations I used Dr Oetker Wafer Daisies ( no I don't know what a doctor is doing selling wafer daisies either :P ) and some Asda Daisy Swirls! Both found in my nearest Asda :)
You could use any kind of flowery decorations you can find though :) Or even just draw on your own using coloured icing tubes! 

I also tried filling in the petals on the white daisy swirls using icing tubes to make them more colourful :)

I iced the cupcakes one at a time - this was important because I had to add decorations while the icing was still wet so that they would stick really well :)

Then I added some detail with different coloured tube icing - this part was fun! :)

I just made up cute flowery designs as I went along :)

I also tried a couple with some yellow lines to look like detail in her hair :)

Tah Dah! Some cute Tanlged inspired cupcakes!

These could probably be used for any sort of Princessy occasion :) Or like me, for just sitting at home watching Tangled on the telly :P

Have a Happy Tuesday everyone! :)
