Recipe of Bubblegum cupcakes


Inflate several water balloons and close well. Grease the balloons with Crisco and attach them with adhesive tape to a tooth pick. Add 3 table spoons of gelatine powder and 6 table spoons of water to a bowl and stir well until the lumps have disappeared. This is a thick jelly. Heat for about 10 seconds on full power in the micro wave, add some pink colouring and sparkle dust powder to it and stir well. The jelly should be fluid but not too hot!

Tip! It is very important to prepare the gelatine balloons two days in advance, to make sure they have dried well before you will be using them.


Dip the balloons into the gelatin and stick them into the dummy to let them dry well. Make sure they don’t touch each other. When the gelatin gets too thick and it becomes hard to dip the balloons into it, then heat it shortly again in the microwave. Make as many balloons as you need, maybe even a few extra in case some break. Let this dry for at least a full day, but preferably even 2 days.


Puncture the balloon and carefully remove them for the gelatine bells. You may want to cut the edges with scissors a bit to make them look better. The balloons are now hard but still fragile, so be careful with them!


Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C).


Prepare 500 g FunCakes Mix for Cupcakes as indicated on the package. Place the baking cups in the muffin pan and fill with the cupcake batter. Bake for 18-20 minutes and let them cool down on a cooling grid.


Prepare 200 g FunCakes Mix for Buttercream as indicated on the package. Divide the buttercream into two portions and colour one light pink and the other dark pink with the gel.


Fill a decorating bag with tip #1M with both of the buttercreams and pipe a small rosette on the cakes you want to decorate with a gelatine bell and a nice swirl on the other cakes. Sprinkle a mix of pearls and confetti on top of the buttercream and carefully place a gelatine bell on the rosettes. Leave the cupcakes in the fridge until further use.
