In celebration of Marvel Studios: Black Panther release of 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On-Demand on May 15 we are making Black Panther Vibranium Cupcakes for our home viewing movie night. During our party, not only did we eat the cupcakes but also enjoyed some popcorn, playing Black Panther bingo, and cuddling up with a comfy Black Panther plush throw.
There are so many things I love about the movie Black Panther from the powerful message it sends to all, costumes, history, scenery and some kick-butt characters. All the reasons to watch this movie when it becomes available on May 15th. In the meantime enjoy this recipe for Black Panther Vibranium Cupcakes!
Black Panther Vibranium Cupcakes
- Chocolate cake mix, prepared as cupcakes
- 2 cups purple candy melts
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 cup purple sugar sprinkles
- 2 sticks butter, softened
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 3-4 tbsp milk
- 4 drop violet gel food coloring
Ensure cupcakes are completely cool before decorating. Line a baking sheet with wax paper. In a bowl, microwave purple candy and coconut oil in 30-second intervals until completely melted.
Pour melted candy on lined baking sheet. Top with sugar sprinkles and let set in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
Using a stand mixer, beat butter, powdered sugar, and milk on medium. Gradually increase the speed to high. Stop the mixer to add food coloring and then mix on high again. Your buttercream will form stiff peaks once it’s ready.
Using a piping bag, frost each of your cupcakes. Remove sprinkled candy from the refrigerator and break off into small pieces (they don’t need to be uniform). Place a few candy pieces on each cupcake and serve.
