Glitterbomb Cupcakes 

One Dozen


Choose your color!


Inspired by Nick Espinosa, who was the originator of glitterbombing in an effort to support glbt rights – I wanted to pay homage to him and all the fine work he has accomplished through his organization. Feel the rainbow….

Here I took my cupcake recipe that is frosted with the standard vanilla-bean buttercream, yet I encrusted the icing with my disco dust to create a cupcake that delivers real WOW!

8 tbsp. (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
4 large egg whites
1 tbsp. vanilla bean paste
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 1/4 cup cake flour

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar together, scraping bowl to ensure ingredients are well incorporated. Add egg whites and beat well, scraping bowl to fully combine. Add sour cream and milk, beating to combine, followed by the baking soda, powder, salt and vanilla bean paste. Lastly, add the cake flour and beat until thoroughly combined.

Scoop scant 1/4 c. batter into muffin-cup lined cupcake pan that has been prepped with Bake-klene. Place pan into oven and immediately reduce oven temperature to 325. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until tester comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting. Enjoy!
