If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I am on a little bit of an abstract art kick. In the last week I have tried my hand at painting abstract art storage boxes and several different canvases for my guest room. I am just drawn to the color and movement in abstract art pieces and have been having a ton of fun creating a few pieces of my own. Well, apparently nothing is safe from me when I go on a craft craze, because last week I also made abstract art cupcakes!
That's right! I went there. And I am so unbelievably excited with how they turned out! Aren't they just the most awesome thing you have ever seen?! And despite how complicated they look, the process was super simple. I even tried my had at making a video for you to show the technique for making your own abstract art cupcakes.
- Plain white iced cupcakes (you will want to make sure the icing is smooth and flat on top)
- Ready Whip whipped cream
- food colors
- toothpick or skewer
- small bowl
Once you are done adding all of your colors, tip your cupcake upside down into the whipped cream making sure to get the whipped cream just up to the sides of the icing and not on the cupcake wrapper. Then remove your cupcake and set aside to let the whipped cream deflate and dry up a bit and proceed in the same way with the rest of the cupcakes.
That is all there is to it! Once the whipped cream deflates on the cupcakes you are left with fun abstract art icing.
One thing to remember is that you want to be sure to only add a small amount of food coloring to your whipped cream. Otherwise you will end up with a very colorful, food color laded cupcake like mine ended up in the video below.
I love the swirl-y tie dye look of these cupcakes and think they will be such a hit at my next party. The best thing is that you can easily change up the colors to suit the holiday or party theme. How fun would red, white, and blue ones be for the 4th of July?!
