MERMAID TAIL CUPCAKES – NERDY NUMMIES


(Nerdy Nummies Theme) Hey guys, it’s Ro. Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies. I got so many request from you guys to make something mermaid theme And I realized that we have never made something mermaid before… This was a code red because I love mermaid and they’re in so many fantasy stories and films that I love Today, we are gonna be making Mermaid Theme Cupcakes Lets get started! Today we’re gonna be making a salted caramel cupcake recipe (Yum!) The things you will need, will be : 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour; 1 cup of packed dark brown sugar; 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar; 1/2 cup of butter or 1 stick of butter; 1/2 cup of butter milk; 2 eggs; 1 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt; 1 teaspoon of baking powder; and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract Now let’s put it a l together!! (Ba doop!) First thing that we’re gonna do in a medium sized bowl whisk together our dry ingredients Our flour, sea salt, and baking powder. Whisk together until well combined then we are going to set it off to the side Next in a large mixing bowl, we are gonna cream together our butter and sugars Then we are going to give it a good mix. I am using a hand mixer. Until it’s light and fluffy Now add both of our eggs and vanilla extract and give them a big mix. Both of our mixtures are ready. And now pour all of your dry mixture in this bowl and mix it up. But you don’t want to over mix as soon. As you can’t see any more dry, STOP mixing! Add our butter milk. Mix together until everything is incorporated, but don’t over mix. As soon as the butter milk has worked it’s way in the batter… STOP!!!! Our caramel sea salt batter is ready, now it’s time to scoop our cupcakes. Over here I’ve got a cupcake tray, line with a bunch of paper liners Scoop some batter and fill each cupcake about 2/3 full. This recipe makes 12 cupcakes. (All for me!) The cupcakes are ready to bake, we’re gonna heat our oven to 350 degrees and bake this for 20 minutes While our cupcakes are baking, we are gonna be making some mermaid themed cupcake toppers out of fondant This part is totally optional, but i’ve got a little luster dust. We’ve got green, gold, and pink And you’re gonna need a cookie cutter with a tail I didn’t have a mermaid tail cookie cutter around the house So i thought, “Whale… what can I use? :/” Did you get it, cause it’s a whale 😀 (Aha, I’m so funny!) First thing that we’re gonna do to make this decoration, roll out our fondant And cut out a bunch of shapes into the fondant Then I’m gonna take my little fondant tool. Its got this small curves edge Press in a bunch of little imprints, to make the scales of the tail Now all of our tails cut out, I let them sit out for about 10 minutes to dry, to set And now I’m gonna be adding a little bit of shimmer For our Pink tails, I’m gonna be mixing a little bit of pink and a little bit of gold shimmer together And lightly brush the top of the fin For the Teal tails, I’m gonna be mixing a little bit of green and a little bit of gold Mix ’em together with a small paintbrush, and paint over the top To ice our cupcakes today, we are gonna be using a 2 tone frosting technique to look like waves I made some buttercream frosting and dyed some of it dark blue and some light blue And I scooped ’em into 2 plastic baggies Then over here I’ve got a large piping bag and an open star tip I’m gonna place the open star tip, down at the bottom of the bag, and then place ’em inside Once your cupcakes have baked and have plenty of time to cool. Now it is time for my favorite part… It’s time to decorate! I got this cute little cupcake wrappers. They’re sparkly and blue. (Heavenly sigh) And the top kinda looks like waves, like an ocean Frost the top to look like waves of an ocean All the way around the outside of the cupcake and then working my way in Cupcakes are frosted. This part is totally optional as well but I’m gonna be adding a little bit of shimmer on to the top to make our waves look wet RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN!!! RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN!!! RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN, RAIN!!! (I’m OK, guys…) Final decoration step : place our little mermaid tails into the center of our cupcakes TADAAAAAA!! And now we’re gonna do that to the rest of the cupcakes (Even bigger) TADAAAAA!!!
