Ready for the cutest cupcakes of the summer? These Palm Tree Cupcakes are easy to make and will steal all the attention at your next party!  I’m serious, these are a showstopper and I even took them one step further and added a cute “towel” and teddy to the island scene!  I started with the fabulous Pillsbury Purely Simple Cake Mix to give me a head start!

Making the pretzel palm trees is actually really easy!  It would make for a great cupcake decorating activity.  And because step by step photos can only show so much, Pillsbury had me make a video for you all!  So you can see every step to making these adorable cupcakes 🙂

A friend sent me a photo of Just a Taste’s Palm Tree Cupcakes and I knew I had to put my own spin on the recipe and add these adorable “towel” and teddies! I mean, look how cute he is out there on his island getting tan…

You can leave the island palm tree and just serve them like that, or you can add a Fruit by the Foot “towel” and a Teddy Graham tanning on the island!  Just use a pair of scissors to cut your “towels’ and then use some frosting to secure the towel and the teddy the the cupcake island!

 

 

I am a rock, I am an I-i-island (cupcake).  That’s how the song goes, right?  Right.

In the video I use the canned frosting but you can use any frosting you want, including the new Purely Simple Buttercream Frosting Mix.  I can’t tell you how many emails I get about frosting.  It can be tricky because powdered sugar is hard to measure unless you weigh it on a scale.  One cup could be 1 1/2 cups for someone else just depending if you pack it in or not.  But wit this new mix, all you do is add water and butter and your frosting will be perfect every time. And without any added colors, preservatives or artificial flavors.

How to make an unusual "Desert Island" cake


  1. We'll start by making sponge dough. To do this, mix flour, baking powder, soda and salt in a deep bowl.
  2. In a separate container, mix 60 g soft butter, vegetable oil, sugar and brown sugar, add lemon juice and mix until smooth.
  3. Add the eggs, then add the dry ingredients while adding the milk and knead the dough.
  4. When the dough is smooth, carefully pour it into a greased round baking dish measuring about 30 cm.
  5. Let the finished biscuit cool down.
  6. When the biscuit has cooled down, cut off the upper part from it - a little less than half.
  7. We need to cut off the top cake, stepping back about one centimeter from the edge. The best way to do this is with a bowl of the right size and use it as a template.
  8. Then, using an ordinary thick straw, make holes along the edge of the cake.
  9. Moving on to the bottom of the biscuit: using the same bowl, mark a circle of a smaller diameter on the cake, and then carefully remove the biscuit from it with a spoon so that there is free space. The main thing is not to pierce the cake through.
  10. The biscuit that we took out of the cake is mixed with the remaining butter to make a thick mass of sandy color. We cover the edges and the inner surface of the recess in the cake with this mass, and then put the cake in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  11. Now let's prepare the icing for the cake. We soak the gelatin in cold water, and in a saucepan heat the water and sugar to a temperature of just over 100 ° C - this is necessary for our glaze to become shiny.
  12. When the mixture is hot, remove the saucepan from the stove and add the chocolate. Stir the mixture well and add the corn syrup and cream - by this point the icing should be smooth and uniform, like a runny cream.
  13. Once the frosting has cooled to 60 °C, add the gelatine. The resulting mass is best mixed with an immersion blender, we need to avoid the appearance of bubbles. In the process of pureeing, add a little food coloring.
  14. Finished glaze must cool down to 28-30 °C, then we can use it.
  15. Tip. If you do not want to monitor the temperature of the glaze, you can not do this. The icing is delicious even without it, although not so shiny.
  16. It's time to put our Desert Island cake together. To do this, put the detachable form with the bottom cake on a large plate or baking sheet.
  17. Carefully pour 3/4 of the glaze through a sieve into the cavity in the cake.
  18. Cover the icing with the top cake layer - it should fit perfectly in the recess - and press it so that the icing seeps through the holes and spreads along the edges of the cake. Only the “island” of the upper cake should stick out above the icing.
  19. Let the icing thicken and then carefully remove the cake from the mold. We decorate it with “palms” of chocolate-covered straws and fresh mint (we use melted chocolate as “glue”), add “greens” from chopped pistachios - and our delicious cake is ready!

After such a dessert, you want to go on vacation even more! On our site there are many more recipes for lovers of beautiful desserts with creative decor.

Mastic toppers

Hello friends!

Today I'm telling and showing how to make beautiful, effective and unrealistically saving your time and labor costs mastic toppers for a children's cake! At the same time, we will learn how to work with sugar and wafer paper, the topic is interesting, the material has great potential, but we have never written anything about it, we need to correct it!

Mastic toppers

I will demonstrate using the example of a children's cake with Fixies. I recently had a story with him that is probably familiar to every home confectioner. Nine in the evening, the doorbell rings - the neighbors. Cake for tomorrow. To kid. With Fixies! “Really asks, really wants, birthday, how without a cake, help me out!” The situation, frankly, is not pleasant, and the most reasonable thing is to refuse, but how? After all, people are not completely strangers. And Fixikov, meanwhile, wants almost everyone. In general, in such cases, if you can’t refuse, and you don’t know how to draw too much, the only way out is to print on sugar or wafer paper and mastic toppers. Well, not to sculpt the whole company, really?

The only condition is the possibility to make this same sugar or waffle picture anywhere. To print, you need a printer, and not necessarily a special confectionery one (I'm not even sure that such ones exist), but refilled with food coloring cartridges. The service of printing on edible paper is provided by some pastry shops, as well as private pastry chefs at home, those who have purchased a printer and cartridges.

In order for the ink not to dry out and the printer to serve for a long time and properly, you need to print pictures at least once a day, which is why almost everyone who has this printer does not refuse those who wish to make sugar pictures. You just need to find a person who lives near you, write to him, agree on a price, send him a file in a jeep and agree on a time when you can pick up the finished picture.

You can print with food coloring on both sugar and wafer paper. Sugar is denser, the image on it is brighter, but it is usually a little more expensive. What to use is up to you.

Here is my sugar picture.

You see, it is packed in a zip-package (in this form, including a large thick envelope, the store where I print gives pictures to customers, very thoughtfully and pleasantly). If you're not going to use the picture right away, store it in a zip-lock bag: it won't let air in, and your picture will retain some of its inherent flexibility. From a long stay in the open air, sugar pictures dry out, become brittle and brittle. But this, by the way, does not threaten the waffle, but it is brittle in itself.

Show sugar picture closer. It is slightly rough, and the print is bright enough. The paper itself is pasted on a thick film.

Here you can roughly understand the thickness.

Let's make a baby cake topper!

Cut out the character...

...along the outline, with a slight indent, however, as you like.

Take a piece of mastic that dries quickly. It can be gelatin mastic (but it is completely tasteless, as for me, and it becomes very hard, I decided that if the children decide to gnaw on the topper, then it can simply be dangerous for their teeth)) or purchased mastic like Vizyon or "Top -product ”, in which SMS can be added to speed up drying (powder, sold in confectionery stores). However, if you have time, then you can do without SMS, it just takes longer to dry.

Here I have the Top Product white vanilla mastic, probably the most budgetary today, but very good.

Added a pinch of sms.

Kneaded. Rolled into a ball, slightly flattened.

Rolled out 5 mm thick (can be thinner, depending on how thick your skewers are).

Attached a picture. She circled the stack around the contour.

Cut out. This must be done very carefully!

I inserted a skewer a few cm deep so that it held well. The thickness of the skewer should be completely immersed in the mastic! In other words, when rolling out the mastic, consider the thickness of the skewer.

Lubricate the mastic with a thin layer of decorgel (can be replaced with honey diluted in water), quite lightly and evenly.

Remove the film from the picture.

Carefully glue the image to the mastic.

Our topper is ready!

Leave to dry, and you can insert it into the cake!

Drying time depends on many factors: mastic, topper size, room humidity. This little Nolik from Top Product mastic with the addition of SMS dried up, at most, in an hour.

And here is the whole gang. Bright and beautiful! And most importantly - quickly, if there is a place to print a picture.

Exit for those who need all at once for a cake weighing 1 kg)

Well, the whole cake.

The cake is made in a minimalistic design. Of the decorations - only toppers made of mastic and cogs-bolts, also made of mastic. It was an urgent cake, as you understand, so I had to do everything very quickly, and the silicone mold from the CakeUp store literally saved me in that situation. I just sprinkled it with corn starch, took small pieces of mastic, dyed it in the right colors, filled the recesses with them, walked along the surface of the mold with a knife, holding it flat and cutting off the excess mastic, and took out the details!

There is time - you can let them dry a little or freeze them in the freezer, they will come out even better. But even so, in a hurry, the result is excellent!

Mold with numbers, by the way, also from the same store.
