80’s Cupcakes – Rubix Cubes and Gold Stars

25 Jan

We were asked to create 80’s cupcakes for an event this past week.  I went to the drawing board and wanted something different.  SO many people do the ghetto blasters, pac man, MTV logos, etc… what could I do that would be different?  And then it hit us!  Rubix Cube Cupcakes (Chocolate Cupcake w/Chambord Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting) and Gold Stars Cupcakes (Chocolate Cupcake w/Almond Cream Cheese Frosting).  And to top it off, I decided not to do fondant rubix cubes, but to actually put real miniature ones on top so they could play with them!

I have to say, I think they look fabulous and I got a little taster in from some mini’s I made on the side and boy were they yummy!

    These are so cool. I love the idea of using the real Rubix Cube! The shocking pink frosting is fab. How do you get that nice big, soft looking swirl on top? I never can manage that.

      Thank you! I use the biggest round tip I can find and make sure the frosting is very creamy! 🙂
