Hi there! It’s Stef, from Girl. Inspired. I
absolutely love polka dots and this Project Polka Dot series, and I am thrilled to share with you today! I
could probably stick polka dots on every project I make for the rest of my life and be a happy camper!
Today, I’m sharing the easiest polka dot cupcakes – you could make these work for any occasion! You
need just a few supplies and you can put these together in no time.
In addition to a plate of cupcakes and a batch of your favorite frosting, you will need an offset spatula,
gel food coloring, and sugar pearls. The sugar pearls come in a variety of sizes and colors and can be
purchased at your local craft store or at a cake supply store. I used the larger size in white for this
Whip up your frosting and add a small drop of the food coloring. I used just a smidge of Navy Blue
coloring to get this light powdery blue color. Remember that it’s a lot easier to darken a color, but if you
add too much color, there’s not a lot you can do short of making another batch of white frosting!
Heap a spoonful of frosting onto the top of your cupcake. Smooth into a dome shape with the
offset spatula. Then, simply place the sugar pearls on top and gently press them halfway into the
frosting. Arrange the cupcakes on a platter and you’re set! Instant Polka Dot Cupcakes!!
Thank you so much for having me today, Melissa! My polka dot project list is growing a mile a minute!
