How to Make BBQ Grill Cupcakes


  1. bake cupcakes as directed and allow to cool
  2. frost cupcakes with the chocolate frosting
  3. sprinkle on the yellow and red sprinkles to look like hot embers from a grill
  4. use black writing icing to apply grill slates across the cupcake
  5. get creative with adding candy "meats" to the cupcakes. The black food coloring is used on a toothpick and you will want to drag it across some of the caramel candies to create a "charbroil" effect. You can shape the caramels by cutting and rolling them.
  6. To do the kabobs, just take a toothpick and cut the candy fruits in half and place on toothpick.
  7. be creative! There are so many options here!
