Bubbly Baby Cupcakes for Oh Joy Digital Baby Shower – Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking Ep. 36


(Music) Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking
Bubbly Baby Cupcakes Hi Bold Bakers! This week, I’m teaming up
with some other great YouTube Channels to bring you a digital baby shower for Joy Cho
of Oh Joy! If you’re not familiar with Oh Joy! I strongly
suggest you subscribe to her channel. Joy creates beautiful videos covering parenting,
DIY, fashion and food. And she is having a baby girl. My contribution to the baby shower are Bubble
Baby Cupcakes. And be sure to stick around to the very end of my video so you can see
all the other great videos in the playlist. So let’s get baking! You’re going to start out by making your cupcakes.
In a previous video for Cupcake Bouquet, I showed you my master recipe so you can use
that or you can use any of your favorite recipes. A nice extra is you can use pink and blue
cupcake liners and if they’re keeping the sex a secret you can use yellow or any color
you like. Now that our cupcakes are organized, we’re
going to make sugar cookies to make the little babies’ faces. In a food processor, we’re going to add in
our flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix these ingredients together until combined. To the dry ingredients, add your butter. And put on the lid and pulse until it resembles
bread crumbs. And that just takes around 5 seconds. After a few seconds of pulsing, this is what
your butter should look like. Nice big chunks. Now add your whisked eggs and vanilla. And then on with the lid again and we’re going
to pulse again until it just comes together. It only takes a few seconds. Ok. This looks perfect. You want to mix it
until it just forms a dough. We’re going to turn out our dough onto a floured
surface. Wrap it in cling film and chill it in the
fridge for around an hour. While our sugar dough is chilling, we’re going
to make the vanilla buttercream frosting to make the bath bubbles for our cupcakes. In a stand mixer or you can use a hand mixer,
add in your room temperature butter. We’re going to cream this on medium speed
for around 1-2 minutes and just let it loosen up. Once your butter is creamed, we’re slowly
going to add in our icing sugar on low speed. When all of the sugar is in there, go around
the bowl with a spatula just to make sure everything was combined. Now we add in our vanilla. Then turn the machine back on high speed then
cream this until it becomes really light and fluffy. This takes around 6 minutes. A lot of you have questions about buttercream
and this is what a good one should look like. Mmm. Yum. And it tastes great. We’re going
to set this aside and let it chill and we’re going to roll out our sugar cookies. Our sugar dough is nice and chilled and ready
to roll so let’s make our baby faces. Roll these out on a well floured surface because
they can be kind of sticky. You also want to work fast. This is my favorite sugar cookie recipe. And because Christmas is coming up, I highly
recommend you add it to your repertoire because it’s a real crowd pleaser. Make sure not to roll your dough too thin.
You want them kind of thick.Then just cut out your little faces. Place your cookies on a tray lined with parchment
paper. Now we’re ready to pop these little guys in
the oven. Bake your cookies at 325 degrees F until
lightly golden brown. While your cookies are baking, we’re going
to whip up our glaze really fast to color in the babies’ faces. In a large bowl, we’re going to add in our
confectioners sugar. To this we’re going to add drop by drop of
water until we get the consistency we want. Add in a tiny bit more water. And this is the consistency you’re looking
for. Not too thin because you want it to coat your cookie. Now with our glaze, we’re going to color it. Kind of a peachy color for the skin and then black for the eyes and mouth. I’m going to put the colors I used along with
the recipe for this video in the description box below. Our sugar cookies are out of the oven. They
look really good. We have to let them go totally cold before we glaze them. This is the first part of assembly for the
cupcakes and it is decorating the baby faces. Just use a small spoonful of your glaze and
spread it around your cookie with a spoon. And go all the way with the edges. As you can see the glaze is nice and smooth
on top of the cookie and that’s what you want. So you want that little bit thinner than usual. Now we want this glaze to set before we pipe
on the eyes and mouth. So that will take around 10 minutes. Now with your glaze set, pipe on your sweet
little baby’s face. Just cut a small hole in a piping bag so you
can make a big smile. Repeat with all your other cookies until you
have a nursery of happy babies. This is the best part bringing everything
together to make our bubble baby cupcakes. To pipe your bubbles, it’s really easy. I’m
not going to show you any difficult techniques. All you need are two round nozzles. One a
little bit bigger than the other so you get different size bubbles. Simply go around the cupcake piping big circles. You do not have to worry about being messy.
Being messy will probably give you the best result. Go back with your smaller nozzle and we’re
going to fill in the gaps. Then just keep on piping bubble after bubble
and it all builds up and you can see this lovely little bed where we’re
going to put our cookies. If your frosting has little peaks, don’t worry.
Just dip your finger in some water and just push them down. Then create more big and small bubbles on
the rest of your cupcakes. Now it’s time to put your baby in the bath. And top off it’s little head with more bubbles. I’m adding a few decorative pearls to give
this guy an extra lift. Now everyone can enjoy their own BIG & BOLD
Bubble Baby Cupcake. They’re perfect for any baby shower or special
occasion. Congratulations Joy on the impending arrival
of your baby girl. Don’t forget to watch all the other great videos in this playlist. Please don’t forget to subscribe to my channel
and I’ll see you back here again next Thursday for more Bigger Bolder Baking.

  10. Thank you for this recipe! I absolutely love the way it looks when it is all put together. We will be using this at our baby shower to present the baby's gender (making the cake pink or blue!) I love your channel.

  11. Hey Gemma you got a huge variety of recipes made in microwave please show me how to make cupcakes in microwave

  12. hi…i've done some of your recipes and outcome was wonderful..i want to make this cookie but i have no food processor..what other way to do it? hope u answer back..thanks

  13. Any tips for a 10 year old girl on baking? I love baking but I'm only 10 so usually my dad won't trust me with baking utensils.

  14. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipes and ideas for using a toaster oven! My son is away at college and I wanted to send him a "Mama loves you" care package filled with his favorite sweets! You've given me so many lovely recipes to send him. Please, keep making toaster oven and microwave recipes for your fans!!

  15. I love watching you make different things that look like it took forever to make but a simple, easy techniques to use. I'm going to try these receipes but I'm pretty sure they won't look like yours! I'm a sweet-a-holic and I go crazy if there's anything sweet around to eat. Love you Gemma and to Kevin and Waffles too.

  16. Gemma do you need to use a food processor to create the cookie dough? And does the butter need to be cold? I'm thinking of baking your sugar cookie recipe but I have no food processor, nor blender therefore I can't get the butter mixed while its cold. Is that going to affect the result of my cookie? If so how??

  17. Oh Gemma, these are the most precious things I have ever seen👶! I have never seen any cupcake like it. I just love it! It's so beautiful. Thank you for explaining it so nicely that someone like me who has been in the past just a home Baker can attempt to do it. You really are a good teacher. I'm sure your friend loved These. Oh and I promise to stop making comments now LOL XO it's just that your page is my go to page for all things wonderful and cheery 🙂 I do think I will make these for my niece sevda because she is in a phase where she is just loving babies. And just a fun fact( well for me it's a fun fact lol ) the name sevda means love. Sorry I can't help thinking of the meaning of her name when I see these cupcakes. Keep baking and thanks as usual XO

  18. Hi, Gemma. Those little cupcakes look so cute and adorable, just like you, my lovely Irish friend. What did you enjoy about making monster cookies? Take care of yourself, cutie pie. I'm looking forward to your No Bake Orange Crème Cheesecake. <3
