Simply Cotton Candy Cupcakes

My good friend and fellow juggling mother Nichole shared this deliciously simple and fun dessert with me and it sounded too good not to pass on to you!  Enjoy!

Simply Cotton Candy Cupcakes

You Will Need:

1 box of white cake mix plus the eggs and oil it calls for
Red and blue food coloring
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick butter
2 Tbs. cold milk
1 pound confectioner's sugar

 Assembly:

  1. Prepare the cake mix as directed and tint it lilac with the red and blue food coloring.
  2. Pour the batter into cupcake molds and bake as directed.
  3. While cakes are baking, combine 1 stick of butter and 1 pound confectioner's sugar.
  4. Beat briskly for 3 to 5 minutes, adding the cold milk gradually until frosting consistency is reached.
  5. Tint the frosting light blue with the remaining dye.
  6. In small saucepan on LOW heat, cook the sugar with NO liquid until you notice a warmed caramel smell.  Crystals should still be intact but appear darker.
  7. After the cupcakes are cooled and frosted, liberally sprinkle the carmelized sugar over the tops.
