I have to make 30 cupcakes for a "Coal Mining Theme" event. I'd like to make the cupcakes black. I am using black liners and frosting them with white and decorating with black sanding sugar and pieces of black candy coal on top.
Does anyone have advice on how to make black cupcakes? Is is possible to make a duncan hines dark chocolate fudge mix (my favorite) and add black paste color? Would you need alot of paste to color them black and would it change the taste of the cupcake? Thanks for any help.
AYou could make them black easily enough - but they will stain everyone's mouth black, and that probably won't be appreciated by most people at an event. Go black liners, dark choc cake, and your decos. Much nicer to eat!
Thank You, they are for young kids at a wrestling tournament. I'll have to find out if the person who ordered them would mind if they stain their mouth!
AThe kids would probably love having black teeth, mouths and tongues! But yes, best to check, and ensure any posed group photos are taken before coal cupcake consumption...
get black cocoa from king arthur flour or somewhere
My plans have changed since I can't find black cupcake liners anywhere. Does anyone know if Michael's sells them? Maybe I'll go with silver
Thank You but I need them by this Thursday.
Hobby Lobby has black cupcake liners. I didn't see any at the Michael's where I live.
I was at Michael's in my area and they did have Black Liners.
