Polka Dot Cupcakes by Girl. Inspired.

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!!
