Coolest Bonfire Birthday Cupcake

by Hillarie
(Uniontown, Pa USA)

I started by making 24 yellow cupcakes. I then began to make chocolate and peanut butter icing. They are both my regular buttercream icing recipe just tweaked.

The recipe calls for 1 cup crisco, 1 tsp salt, a bag of domino's power sugar, 2 tsp of a flavoring and water.(almond, butter or vanilla) With the chocolate you add 1/2 cup of hershey's cocoa and for the peanut butter you do 1/2 cup crisco and 1/2 cup peanut butter.

I put the crisco, then salt, the flavoring and then the powder sugar in my kitchen aid mixer and then I add water (no set amount just til you get it to the consistency you like) on top and mix for 4 minutes and scrape the sides and mix for another 4 minutes. I arranged the cupcakes on the cake board in a rectangle, put a dot of icing on the bottom of each one and then filled in the holes with icing. I then put a thin layer of chocolate icing on one side and iced the other in peanut butter. A couple nights before i had made a batch of fondant. I added brown coloring so I could roll it out and make a long strip to make the fire ring and I made about 7 logs as well.

I place the ring on top and then I put a mound of icing and brought it up sorta like a teepee. I then got my airbrush out and did red at the bottom, then sprayed orange, I placed the logs on at that point and took the icing bag and pulled some tips of icing out of the logs etc to make it look like flames and then I used yellow to top off the flames. I mixed green coloring into the chocolate icing for the green grass on the left, and I added green and a little brown to the peanut butter icing to get the same green as the chocolate and iced the left side.

Wrote Happy Birthday Emily in the grass in green and that finished Bonfire birthday cupcake!
