Glow under Black Light Cupcakes

These have to be my favorite cupcakes, by far!

This weekend we had a neon 21st birthday party to go to. I've had this pin for Glow in the Dark Cupcakes on my Pinterest for months and thought this was the perfect opportunity to try it!

I did my cupcakes and frosting as normal, adding a small drop of tonic water to the frosting as it was mixing. Next, I put the cupcakes in the freezer so the frosting would free. After about 20 minutes, we dipped the cupcakes into a cup of tonic water and let it drip. Once they were all dipped, we put them back in the freezer until party time. We topped a few of them with Nips, as you can't go to a 21st birthday party without alcohol for the birthday boy!

As you can see, they glow pretty well! Next time I'll probably dunk them a few times, freezing them in between so they're really covered in the tonic so they glow bright!
