How To Make Captain America Cupcakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a 12 count muffin tin with cupcake liners

the 1/2 cup softened butter, 2 eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder and milk, mixing well.

Bake the cupcakes for 18-20 minutes.

Around 18 minutes, insert a toothpick into the cupcakes and if it comes out clean the cupcakes are done. 

Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool completely.

Once the cupcakes have cooled, gently roll out the red fondant to about 1/8″ thick.

If the fondant starts to get sticky, use a little bit of powdered on the rolling pin and rolling surface. 

Use the largest 2.75″ cookie cutter to cut out the red fondant.

Frost the top of the cupcake and place the large red fondant circle on top.

Next, roll out the white fondant and use the 2.25″ cookie cutter.

Apply a small amount of frosting on the back of the white fondant and stack on top of the red.

 
 
Next, use the 2″ cookie cutter on the red fondant, apply frosting to the back of the circle and stack on top of the white fondant circle. 
 
Next, roll out the blue fondant and use the smallest 1.5″ cookie cutter to cut a blue fondant circle. 
 
Apply a small amount of frosting to the back of the blue fondant and stack on top of the other colours. 
 
Lastly, use the small star cookie cutter to cut out a white fondant star and stack on top of the cupcake. 
 
Repeat with all cupcakes.
 
 
This recipe makes approximately 12 Superhero cupcakes. Enjoy!
